Well dang,





Even though I'm purely an acoustic player, and primarily a fingerpicker, I've always admired Chuck's guitar work -- the enthusiastic drive of his rhythms is really great, guaranteed to get heads bobbing and toes tapping.

I'd love to see a memorial album called "Johnny B. Goode", that would start with his recording and follow with a compilation of all the great versions of the song that other rockers and bluesmen have done.



RIP Chuck

Saturday Night Live - Next Week in Review skit - April 22, 1978
Dan Ackroyd: You see, it all started on August 20th, 1977, when NASA put up a recording of the sounds of Earth on Voyager I. A two-hour long tape included natural sounds of animals, a French poem by Gaugliere, a passage from the Koran in Arabic, messages from President Carter, United Nations Secretary Kurt Waldheim, music … everything from classical to Chuck Berry.
Laraine Newman: And you're saying that another civilization has found the tape?
Steve Martin: Yes. They've sent us a message that actually proves it. It may be just four simple words, but it is the FIRST positive proof that other intelligent beings inhabit the universe.
Laraine Newman: And what are the four words?
Steve Martin: The four words that came to us from outer space … the FOUR words that will appear on the cover of Time Magazine next week, are: Send More Chuck Berry.

Hard to grasp what rock 'n' roll would be without him.

Roll over, Beethoven.

Been listening to Berry all afternoon. Ur-rock.
