Another one that I have to say, "I thought he died years ago," when I read their obituary.

If I am to rank a human's success and greatness on steps of a ladder. He was one who reached the highest ring.
RIP

The direct link between blues and rock n' roll. I got the impression you wouldn't have wanted to be in his band though

He had announced that he was releasing his first album in almost 40 years with all new material in 2017. Working till the end.... I wonder if any of it will ever be made available. Another music icon gone.... RIP

Re: RIP Chuck Berry 2017/03/19 13:16:11 (permalink)
Some excellent Chuck Berry quotes on others' tunes:
 
The Sex Pistols’ “God Save the Queen”:
What’s this guy so angry about anyway? Guitar work and progression is like mine. Good backbeat. Can’t understand most of the vocals. If you’re going to be mad at least let the people know what you’re mad about.
 
The Clash’s “Complete Control”:
Sounds like the first one. The rhythm and chording work well together. Did this guy have a sore throat when he sang the vocals?
 
The Ramones’ “Sheena is a Punk Rocker”:
A good little jump number. These guys remind me of myself when I first started, I only knew three chords too.
 
The Romantics’ “What I Like About You”; 20-20’s “Oh Cheri”; The Beat’s “Different Kind of Girl”:
Finally something you can dance to. Sounds a lot like the sixties with some of my riffs thrown in for good measure. You say this is new? I’ve heard this stuff plenty of times. I can’t understand the big fuss.
 
The Gladiators’ “Sweet So Still”; Toots & The Maytals’ “Funky Kingston”; Selectors’ “On The Radio”:
This is good, real smooth and soulful. Real good to bump and shuffle to. Sounds a bit like my old buddy Bo Diddley, only slower. I tried something similar on a song called “Havana Moon”.
 
Dave Edmunds’ “Queen of Hearts”:
This is more like it. This guy’s got a real touch for rock and roll, a real gut feeling. Has he ever made it big? Well, if he ever needs a job, I could use him.”
 
Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”:
A funky little number, that’s for sure. I like the bass a lot. Good mixture and a real good flow. The singer sounds like he has a bad case of stage fright.
 
Wire’s “I Am the Fly” and Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures”:
So this is the so-called new stuff. It’s nothing I ain’t heard before. It sounds like an old blues jam that BB and Muddy would carry on backstage at the old amphitheatre in Chicago. The instruments may be different but the experiment’s the same.

Well apparently there's a Chuck Berry sex tape. Who would have thunk. One of my friends just posted it on Facebook. Not to speak ill of the dead, but that guy had some *ahem* colorful sexual preferences. Who would have thought that breaking wind was erotic?

I was never really a fan of Chuck, but he influenced everybody I DO like. 
It's pretty amazing that at 90, he was working on a new album - his first in around 40 years from what I've heard!  I'm hoping that it had progressed enough that it'll be released.

I wonder if one of the songs will be "Johnny Be Dead?"

Just that intro riff, with lots of delay and reverb.
