Mr. Berry was one of the most influential guitarist during the birth of rock and roll You can not listen to his music and not smile, You Never Can tell, Maybelline, Sweet Little Sixteen and on and on. Tremendous music, Never to be duplicated.

Every time an influential musician passes I try to learn a song or two of theirs as a tribute. Sadly my song repertoire has grown a lot in the past year. Oh well, time to go look for some Chuck Berry inspiration on YouTube.

We play "Johnny B. Good" often. Just watched "Cadillac Records" where Mos Def played Chuck Berry. Chuck was a great entertainer.

Station Hotel, Loftus N. Yorks for me and it'll be Sweet Little Sixteen as it's the only one I know the words without having them in front of me.

All the 'greats' seem to be leaving us lately, if there is another place after death, there's going to be one 'hell' of a jam going on! :D
