Chuck BerryToday we celebrate life and times of the great Chuck Berry! We lost him last weekend. I think he is basically the reason we have rock’n’roll today. If you hear some new band and you can’t hear Chuck Berry in their sound, at least a little bit, then it’s not rock’n’roll. All the greats were immensely influenced by Chuck. His guitar riff is the very fiber of the rock’n’roll fabric. He turned lyrics into poetry. He made rock’n’roll art and he was the first one to do it. We will hear a bunch of covers of Chuck’s greatest songs from a wild variety of artists today in his honor. Rest in peace, master!
