ONE fucking reply so far? Are you people fucking kidding me? Fuck you! OK, the thread was started by tesla69, unfortunately, but fuck you. Yes, Chuck was 90, he was near the end before yesterday, but I still cried my eyes out. We've lost THE building block of rock & roll. There are no words. Except FUCK YOU.

Hail, Hail Rock 'n Roll! RIP Chuck Berry. He outlived many of his contemporaries. Not too many of them left.

"If you tried to give Rock & Roll another name, you might call it, Chuck Berry" - John Lennon

A prominent local attorney had Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis play a private Birthday party in a airplane hangar here in Beaumont......a local news person said it was the only time the two played the same gig.

Brilliant. :) The reply would probably go like this: "This Berry feller, we want all you have from him. The rest of your bitch-ass human civilization can suck it from a bucket".

Chuck Berry's final album will be out in June but his family has released one track. https://youtu.be/d8Zoh-apWRE LOve it. Old fart still rocking hard. I do not understand the people in comments who say the song sounds just like all his other songs. I would call that DISTINCTIVE!

Two great articles:

Chuck Berry: The Man Who Invented America

Yes, Chuck Berry Invented Rock 'n' Roll ó and Singer-Songwriters. Oh, Teenagers Too

RIP Chuck.

Sorry. I've been busy and stuff.

It's a great loss indeed. Thankfully not a heartbreaking one like Bowie's, since Berry lived a very long life. Not a depressing one like Prince's because he didn't die of an OD after 30 years of hiding an unparalleled opiate addiction.

Still, very sad.

Dad owned an LP of his which I listened to as a kid. Knowing he was American I was amused he did a track called Fish and Chips, the world famous takeaway choice of the Brits.
