An unbelievable performer, I grew up with Chuck Berry. One of my favorite early songs of his was "Maybellene" (when I was in High School - 1955).
I was at several Rock-n-Roll concerts (1960's - 1970's) where he put on quite a show.

GOD Bless his soul....and, comfort his family.

Great performer.

If a young rock and roller today, say Lady Gaga, did half the terrible stuff he did in his lifetime believe me no one here would be delivering accolades.

Not one of, but THE, most important single figure in rock 'n roll history. Unlike Elvis, for example, he not only sang but wrote songs (among the best ever)and played guitar (most influential guitarist in the genre).

However, in "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" he did write "2-3 the count" before guy hits one "into the sands." His local Cardinals did have a big day for him and did a Chuck Bobblehead.

I love Chuck Berry's misic but I was surprised at his problems with the law.

RIP Chuck. With all due respect to the great Elvis Presley, he and Little Richard are the true kings of rock 'n' roll.

"Problems with the law" is an interesting way of describing a guy who, among other things, filmed underage females going to the bathroom in his restaurant.

Makes me laugh because when I complemented Lady Gaga on the watercooler board after the Super Bowl people came out with pitchforks. Someone found a picture of her giving the middle figure to a photographer. Ghastly stuff like that. Obligatory pining for the good old days when everything was so much more wholesome. These kids today. . .. I'm telling you . . .

What I heard was transporting a minor across state line for immoral purposes and armed robbery.

Uh, that's unrelated. . . .

I'm not trying to dump on Berry, just amazed by older people who rant and rave about Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, etc. The "everything is always getting worse and worse camp." Think that might be a requirement when you accept your AARP card.
