The Chuck...

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Berry, that is. Somehow I missed the fact that yesterday was his 90th birthday.  Ninety years old, and coming out with a new album in early 2017. I, for one, can't wait.

All - Some people question his life style, but there is no denying that his music was solid, I think.

I remember the beginning of rock and roll: Chuck Berry and the Killer (Jerry Lee) have to share the father of Rock and Roll - that white kids listened to. Of course Memphis late night radio was playing Rock/blues with black artist a decade before. I was raised in Rolling Fork Mississippi the home of Muddy Waters - who could only play in the Black Cat across the bridge on Saturday night. He couldn't drink out of the white water fountains; but now he is the only claim to fame for Rolling Fork.

Ol'B---You gotta love irony. Muddy Wateers is the man, as far as I'm concerned.

Professor C---Amen brother. Elvis Smellvis...a piker compared to the C.

What an amazing performance. I've seen Chuck a few times in concert and he always delivered.
