    Chess records.
    Arguably the greatest lyricist of the 20th century.

    I saw him in concernt back in 84' or 85'. One of the greatest showmen I've ever seen.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Started listening to him back in the '50s, and saw him at the Meriwether Post Pavillion in Columbia, MD back in the early '70s. Truly gifted lyricist and guitar player; he'll be missed.

    I know he made an impact on me. He had a style all his own, the way he walked that guitar across the stage was classic.

    But his music was inspiring. He inspired others to greatness.

    Heres his bill board top hits list.

    This is a sad day for sure. Chuck Berry basically wrote the book on how to play rock n roll electric guitar. One tasty lick after another...an artist and a genius. And he was a bit of a bad ass to boot!

    In the documentary Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, there is a scene where he is giving Keith Richards a bad time for playing a particular riff wrong. To the point where Keef was rolling his eyes at Chuck. Only rock n roll royalty could give Keef crap and get away with it.

    RIP Chuck

    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.
