erichutchinsonChuck Berry was one of my all-time favorites. One of the great pioneers of Rock N Roll and pop music. The original singer/songwriter/guitar-playing troubadour. Taught The Beatles and The Beach Boys and The Stones how to play and write. .
The first song I ever sang on stage was "Johnny B. Goode". I made a pilgrimage to St Louis a few years back to see him in concert. He was a giant to me. .
He was certainly a flawed character, so I suppose he helped make that mold for rockers too. I am grateful for all his music and showmanship and life. .
RIP Chuck. Hail! Hail! Rock N Roll!
- amanduhmpI don't think we should celebrate, and in turn normalize, sexual deviancy. His contribution to the music industry is undeniable. But, this shouldn't overshadow the human indecency he showed to so many.
- whimsicalnatureLove it. Thank you for not shying away from celebrating him for the good and acknowledging it wasn't all good.
- jtwood_official@daniel_booth chuck didn't need the feet close together!
