RIP to one of the most important rock n roll artists of all time.

Let's dedicate the rock and roll cup to him.

The truth is, I hardly ever play his stuff (though I've recently become obsessed with You Never Can Tell) but he was an undeniable giant of popular music who helped chart the path to right now.

Have to admit I didn't want to see him in concert, I was under the impression that for some time he'd been doing minimum time in gigs and phoning it in. But you can't really blame him.

Major contributor to the music we love. Very grateful.

My old mate Lou Martin (ex-Rory) toured with Chuck Berry.

Some interesting stories - perhaps not to be shared here.

RIP Johnny B Goode

Kreeg Antwoord: [ coughing ] You see, it all started on August 20th, 1977, when NASA put up a recording of the sounds of Earth on Voyager I. A two-hour long tape included, uh, natural sounds of animals, a French poem by Gaugliere, a passage from the Koran in Arabic, messages from President Carter, United Nations Secretary Kurt Waldheim, music -- everything from classical to Chuck Berry.

Maxine Universe: Uh -- and you're saying that the, uh -- another civilization has found the tape?

Cocuwa: Yes. They've sent us a message that actually proves it. It may be just four simple words, but it is the FIRST positive proof that other intelligent beings inhabit the universe.

Maxine Universe: Uh -- what are the four words, Cocuwa?

Cocuwa: The four words that came to us from outer space -- the FOUR words that will appear on the cover of Time Magazine next week -- are: [ he holds up the magazine" "Send More Chuck Berry".

He was 90. I think that's considered a pretty good run in anyone's book.

The band that played on most of that Chess stuff of the 1950s, with Johnny Johnson or Otis Spann on piano and Willie Dixon on bass was superlative.
His various boxed sets of this material are an absolute joy.
When I looked him up on iTunes to check titles, I found I have more than 7 gigabytes of this stuff, and you can dip in anywhere and find wonderful things
