Keith Richards notwithstanding, CHUCK and BO were 'the man'.

Not technically too gud, but sure got a lot of folks into the mix and rare shot of Chuck on piano.



Well process my hair, that man can walk like a duck

I got to see that man rock back in '81 (no, not 1881, 1981).
36 years ago, so he would have been 54. He'd a put most of us to
shame, puttin' on a show like that!!!!

You're on the right track. He's credited with inventing the microwave camera. Very stealth.

The first live show I got to see was Chuck Berry. This was at the tail end of the teen angel/greaseballs in leather jackets era of Rock and Roll.

The opening act got booed, The Pomade was thick in the air, the stage got swarmed,the music was great and all of the seating got smashed up while the crowd passed around reefers and whisky.

I was 15 years old and will never forget being introduced into old school Rock and Roll !

Chuck Berry's concert let me know what it means to laugh robustly !

The best beer brewed in Seattle is an IPA called "Lucille" from Georgetown Brewing.

I'll be toasting with a pint of that tonight.

The Poet Laureate of rock & roll.

The first and best. The architect.

Elvis did Chuck songs. Jerry Lee Lewis did Chuck songs. Chuck did Chuck songs.

Chuck was famous for his pick-up bands. Here he passes the piano chores over to Jerry Lee and Keith (still feuding with Chuck) changes his name to "Little" to get an opportunity to shine. To his everlasting chagrin, Mr. Penniman hissownself actually showed up.
