    Chuck Berry has died.

    As someone on another forum said, "The Architect has checked out."

    RIP

    Awe man, getting old sucks. Even if you're not dying, someone else is.

    RIP Chuck.

    I can't imagine rock-n-roll being what it has been for well over half of a decade without the influence of Chuck Berry.

    I was a rock band roadie from 1968 until 2010.

    I worked on a show at the Hollywood Palladium where Chuck was on the bill. Only time in decades of roadying that I was at all star-struck. Backstage I stood about fifteen feet away from him, didn't bug the dude, who was famously unfriendly.

    Chuck was looking for a place with a lawn near St. Louis, so he bought a golf course and built a house on it. He rented the property to promoters for outdoor concerts.

    I worked on a concert there in 1976. Chuck was driving around on the grass in his Cadillac convertible with a pair of longhorns on the front the width of the car.

    It wasn't Chuck's fault that the concert went south, because he wasn't the promoter, but it did. The promoters ran out of money with three bands left to play, and they refused to perform. We were already done, but as it got uglier, I forced my truck through the crowd and got out of Dodge.

    Got back to the hotel and flipped on the news, watched the stage burning on live TV.

    I don't know; Chuck was a sick f*ck as it were.

    Do some research on his shenanigans. He would've been skewered nowadays, with the Twitters, Instagrams and what not. Perverted cat for sure!
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    Ha! He was also into relations with the younger set, to put it mildly.

    IOW he did all the stuff that the musicians he inspired and who followed him did, but he did them as a Black man in the '50s instead of a British rocker in the sixties and seventies.

    Perhaps you have heard of the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin?

    He was transporting youngsters across state lines for gratuitous affairs they say. And he enjoyed some scat love. I'm not sure Robert Plant was involved in such activities; if so, he's a pig as well.

    If you haven't seen, a mod confused Chuck Barris with Chuck Berry and thought it was a duplicate thread. It's back.

    I always confuse Bill Clinton and George Clinton.
