    If you are even the slightest bit of a rock n roll fan you've got to drop some respect for the great Mr. Berry!

    If there hadn't been Chuck Berry, there wouldn't have been a Beatles, or a Rolling Stones....and without them, there wouldn't have been anything.


    Chuck Berry with Lemmy (Motorhead). Lemmy once described Motorhead's music as "Chuck Berry on steroids."

    I'm embarrassed to say I thought it was the game show guy when I saw the thread.

    Either way, may he rest in peace.

      May the souls of both of them Rest in Peace. Both have been so much talented and popular. One with Rock music, the other with TV Game Shows.

    No love for a rock'n roll legend here? Geez. Tough room!

    I guess nobody reads these forums unless it's rants about politics and/or Jesus. Sheesh. (*kicks rock*)

      Very sad news indeed. There have been so many great stories coming out since news of his death. He sure did know how to put "youngsters" like Keith Richards in their place. So many artists have come forward with stories about how he influenced them...to your point, modern music - and especially rock'n'roll - would not have evolved the way it has without him.

      Very sorry to know. I have been a fan of rock and roll in my prime years. Now, don't have any time for all these things. I loved his songs and performances much. Now, I am 65 and he has reached his 90.
      May his soul rest in peace. And, my condolences to their family members.

    Chuck Berry infuenced me in music at an eary age in school, I just loved his style and I believe he was the beginning of my love for rock and roll, and all music for that matter! rip, you left a big mark on us

    That would be Chuck "Gong Show" Barris, and he's just passed away as well. Damn, this is a bad week to be a Chuck!

    I hope Chuck Norris is OK!
