A Chuck Berry Tribute

Chuck Berry, Rock ’n’ Roll Pioneer, Dies at 90

After Elvis Presley, only Chuck Berry had more influence on the formation and development of rock & roll. The St. Louis native internalized country, blues and R&B influences to create a singular guitar technique. Berry paired these skills with dashing charisma, magnetic stage moves and an expressive voice that resonated with both teenagers and anyone young at heart—ensuring his status as one of rock & roll's first great hit makers.  Source:Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  

My favorite Chuck Berry songs is listed below.  I will make you laugh and think about his amazing stage presence.  And yes, the dance done my Chuck Berry immortalized in the movie Back to the Future.    

We miss you Chuck and thank you!

"A sophomoric, double-entendre-laden ode."

  1. Puzzle me this.
    I believe that he came out with Maybellene in 1955-56. Seat belts were not installed in cars until the mid-1960s. Hence I have always pondered the line about not unfastening her safety belt. Do you have a theory?
    My favorite was Roll over Beethoven, followed by Johnny B Goode and then Maybellene.
