Chuck Berry, Hail, Hail, Rock and Roll !

Hail, Hail, Rock and Roll !

Chuck Berry, who wrote and played much of the soundtrack of our lives in the 1950's and early 1960's, is gone. He was an architect of rock and roll; he had the lyrics, guitar, attitude and showmanship. Without him, the music of the British invasion ( the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, et al) and much that followed would have been non existent or far different than it was. 

Listening to his music this weekend, much of it is still vibrant, especially with the lesser known songs. How many rock and roll songs of that era began with the lyric "Arrested on charges of unemployment ...", had the stream of consciousness of "Too Much Monkey Business", or the imagery of "coffee colored Cadillac"? And his Johnny B Goode was the only rock and roll song sent into space on Voyager I and II. Any favorite songs or thoughts of Chuck Berry?
