Chuck Berry 1926 - 2017

Bildergebnis für chuck berry

Sadly the news arrived that there will be no duckwalk here on earth. Chuck Berry died last night at the age of 91. Not that I am a big fan from him I grew up with his early songs like No particular way to go and You never can tell. I also know that many guitar players references Chuck's guitar playing for creating their own sound. You all can read that his influence in Rock 'n' Roll is immense but for me he made some timeless little songs telling short stories of life. Berrys succinct lyrics were an important part of his art, in the group with the suggestive music they unfolded her fascination strength. Possibly in the song "Memphis, Tennessee": He begins like a normal love story in which a man wants to find out the phone number of a girl called Marie with the information. Then becomes slowly evident that it concerns a bitter separation history, and the father wants to speak only once with his 6-year-old daughter, before he never again sees again them. Perfect dramaturgy in form and contents, timeless pop. An effect from duration: Still in 1994 Uma Thurman and John Travolta twist in Quentin Tarantinos "Pulp Fiction" not possibly "Let's twist Again "by Chubby Checker, seperately to Chuck Berrys" You Never Can Tell" from 1964.

RIP Chuck.

Undoubtedly one of the biggest influences on rock 'n' roll, and a teriffic showman too. Sadly, he also became known for becoming increasingly unpredictable, conceited and obsessed with money. Still, he left some great tunes.

As the Robster said a musical great but perhaps not a particulalry nice person.
Love Memphis Tennessee
