Just caught this on the newswires.
I'm sure that more is to come on this, so watch this space.
A rock legend for sure.
Rest is peace Chuck.
Oh man, what a great musician he was.
Had the opportunity to see him perform in San Francisco many decades ago. He was using Steve Miller as his back up band. His audience participation of 'My Ding-a- ling' was just too funny.
Just saw this in the Guardian, and came here to start a thread, and found that one already existed. So, first off, thanks for starting the thread.
A genuine legend, in music, and popular culture and someone who quite literally changed the world not least through his influence on his chosen art form.
RIP Chuck. A legend.
Had me hooked from the very beginning. RIP, Chuck.
You can take a lot of musicians down to one move - one single thing that propelled them to stardom.
Moonwalk for Michael Jackson.
Beatles on Ed Sullivan.
Elvis' hip gyrate.
James Brown doing the splits.
But if you had to take it down to rock'n'roll's roots, the big move.. that big thing would be: the duck walk. I mean, that, back in 1958 with a black guy playing guitar..
As a black guitarist, I can't think of anything else that would define not only rock, but say that it's okay to not be someone who is white and play an instrument that isn't just a piano or something R'n'B.
R.I.P. Mr. Berry.. Like others liked your music from the very beginning!
I was at the Bottom Line in NYC in the early 80s and he came in one night and did an hour on stage. Was an amazing night.
