linguanigraOne of my idols passed away today.
I am so sad but he lived a long, very colorful life. One of the few to have been given recognition for being one of the founders of what used to be called "Race Music", now called Rock and Roll.
Thank you Chuck Berry King of Rock and Roll, for everything.
Funny Chuck Berry story: I had a box cd set of alllll of his music (so I know all of his songs...and read his biography) and saw him perform around 1998 in Chicago. He invited people on the stage to dance and one woman decided it was the perfect time to booty pop (now called twerk) in front of him...because Johnny B Good is the perfect soundtrack for that. Sigh.
I've also dated at least 4 dudes who looked like Chuck Berry. At least.
What's your favorite Chuck Berry song? Mine is "Memphis, Tennessee"
