He certainly did. He was one of the instigators of Rock 'N' Roll. Long live Rock!

Yeah guys,
I know I could have posted this behind the James Cotton post, but I thought Chuck to
be too important to get lost by other posts. That is the reason I put it here.

I agree - the least we can do is give them their own thread.

Chuck Berry was one of the best. I never saw him live but I've seen him several times on TV - videos of complete concerts, one relatively recently with his son playing bass and to say he was in his 80s he was still in great form.

I also remember seeing the clip of him playing Sweet Little Sixteen in Jazz on a Summer's Day - a film of the Newport Jazz Festival. He really woke the audience up at a time when they seem to have gone to sleep. The clip is on You Tube and someone posted it on Facebook the other day. It's still magic even after all these years - and he had some Jazz greats playing along with them - just listen to the clarinet solo in the middle, brilliant.

A fantastic performer and a great songwriter.
