The dude could flat out play guitar. Don't know anybody who ever played "Johnny Be Good" better than Chuck Berry. Was a real hit maker as well.

Was one of two people who influenced mr the most musically, and now most of my developing years are gone.

RIP Chuck.

MY parents introduced me to Chuck's music at an age when I was barely old enough to stand on my own. I have loved his music ever since. I am so very sad to hear of his passing, but 90 is a good long run and he kept going the whole time.
