Some people might add he was a pervert and one of the nastiest human beings on the planet. But, yes, musically the world would be a very different place but for his genius.
[/quote]a flawed genius for sure, but I can't help but listen to Chuck Berry without a smile on my face, and 90 is a pretty good innings, saw him about 20 years ago, it was one of those gigs that was exactly what I was expecting, right down to the white crimplene flairs, a treasured memory
