My all time favorite of his, though it sounds an awful lot like School Days.


His 1987 biopic "Hail! Hail! Rock And Roll" about the making of a tribute concert for his 60th birthday is IMHO the greatest Rock documentary of all time.

Speaking of "Roll Over Beethoven", I guarantee they will play that song at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, especially since one of this years inductees is ELO.

Two of my favorites, which include all that have been posted and many more. The intro for the first one was really a trademark after "Johnny B. Goode". I'd have played a pure version of the second one but the movie scene is just too good not to reprise, and it gets most of the song.

Both of these songs have an element of sweetness to them; family and friends in the first, young love and old fondness in the second. Not Chuck's usual genre. Both were written while he was in jail, serving time for a (bogus and trumped up) Mann Act violation.

There will never be another Chuck Berry.

I'm happy to say I did get a chance to see him live once, at a county fair late in his career. I didn't get a great view because we were in the process of sneaking in. I could hear okay but I only got glimpses of the stage as we were dodging from one cover to another. They caught us, of course, but not before we were almost to the grandstands in front of the stage.

Chuck Berry's Friend Says Forthcoming Album Is 'Sensational' | Hollywood Reporter

It's all original songs and it was announced last October. Even if it wasn't new songs it will still probably be at the top of the charts.

I am sure many of you know that Chuck Berry's music is aboard the Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. Here is Carl Sagan's wonderful note to Berry.



There is an old SNL skit where they announced that aliens had discovered the Voyager spacecraft and had sent a message to earth....."Please send more Chuck Berry"
