We take a moment this Sunday to say happy birthday to Chuck Berry. He is 90 and that makes all of his devout fans wonder where the time has gone!
Chuck's songs, guitar and energy left their mark on rock music. He is one of the most influential rockers ever. Chuck is indeed one of the Founding Fathers of what we call rock music!
His songs were big hits in the late 1950s. They were brought back in the 1960s by The Beatles, Elvis, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, et al.
His songs were the ones that every "teen garage band" learned to play.
Remember how you drove your mom crazy doing "Johnny B Goode" on that electric guitar that you got for Christmas?
Let's just repeat that Chuck Berry was one of the most consequential songwriters and rock performers ever! I had the pleasure of watching one of his shows in the 1970's and Chuck is second to none!
Happy # 90 to the great Chuck Berry!
