Sad news, although at 90 years of age, it was only a matter of time, I suppose.

His contribution to rock n roll is incalculable. No Chuck = No Stones and No Beatles.

You cant even begin to imagine what rock 'n' roll would sound like had he never existed.

RIP Chuck.

I met Chuck Berry in January 1980 at Heat, a long since-defunct club in a warehouse on the lower west side of Manhattan, near the Hudson River docks.  The streets outside were all of cobblestone and had ancient trolley tracks inlaid, the lines filled with white ice.  Chuck had just gotten out of prison for tax evasion and was barnstorming the US to raise some cash.

Chuck's sets were advertised for 10:00 PM and midnight.  The opening act was Sylvain Sylvain from the New York Dolls with his new band, who weren't very interesting.  That was over at 10:30, and Chuck didn't come on until after 1:00 AM.  I had been there since around eight o'clock, and didn't want to give up my spot at the edge of the stage to go urinate, though by the time Chuck's first set ended, I needed to badly.

So I'm in the men's room alone and had just finished up, when behind me I hear a door creak like in a haunted house.  I turn around and Chuck walks in through a private door that I hadn't noticed.  It's wild that he didn't have a toilet in his dressing room, but that was warehouse space nightlife, and there may not have been a dressing room, even.

He was dressed all in red, suit and shirt.  There was nothing for us to do but eyeball each other.

I could have cried. 

"Chuck!" I blurted, "Thank you!  We all owe you so much!  Everybody in rock 'n' roll does!"  I swear, I stopped just short of saying, All white people do!

"Far out!" Chuck said, happily.  He made like to slap my hand, and I duly accepted his five. 

"Be cool," Chuck concluded.  I've always wished I had taken his advice.

I stayed for the second show and fought my way to another spot at the front, farther away from Chuck than I had been for the first show.  A few songs in, Chuck saw me down there and bopped his way over.  I no longer remember what song it was, but he leaned over close to me and played the solo right into my face.  His hair (I had been surprised to see) was frizzed out and grey, not dyed and slicked, and blue and purple stage lights gleamed off the tips.  He dropped sweat all over me.  I was the literary type: Jesus Christ, I thought, This is like being fucked by Frederick Douglass! 

When Chuck finished the song, he handed me the pick.  I was surprised to see it was a heavy-gauge, opaque grey model, quite ordinary.  Maybe I expected it to light up, or something.  I still have it, tucked inside David Johansen's harmonica case, along with Bo Diddley's broken bottom E-string, which was handed to me from a different stage years later.  (I got to talk to Bo that night, too.  I'm like that.)

By the time Chuck finished his second set, which had started about 3:30 AM, there were no cabs to be had.  I walked back across the frozen west side and made it to my NYU dorm room at about a quarter to six.  That was the start of my second semester.

I thought I was tired then, but I'm really tired now. 

Jesus Christ, we are fucked by Father Time.  Rest in peace, Chuck.  That was 37 years ago.

Talk about an incalculable contribution to rock 'n roll, he more than half invented it. Other musicians we tend to idolize (Jimi, Keith, etc.) all acknowledged their debt to him.

I was a kid who listened to the Beatles and Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. Those artists lead me to the true King of Rock and Roll, Mr. Chuck Berry.

All of the greatest riffs come from Chuck. At any time of day, put a Chuck record on, and the party has started. If you are behind the wheel, you drive faster. If you are on the dance floor, your moves become better! That locomotive quality to his playing is purely genius. The man was an epic performer, singer, songwriter and guitarist.

I was very much looking forward to any press he was going to grant during the build up to his new record, due sometime this year.

My Sunday will be spent listening to his great music, the music that really did change the entire world.

In addition to his guitar licks and showmanship, Chuck brought rock'n'roll lyrics to a new level of intelligence and wit.  We will not see his like again.

I'm pretty sure he did. It was announced on his 90th birthday that it was going to be out in 2017 which suggested to me that it was already completed.

R.I.P. I saw Chuck twice, in '69 at Toronto Rock & Roll Revival & '72 at Massey Hall, a band I was in used to cover J.B. Goode & Roll Over Beethoven, anybody who played in a Band had a go at one of his songs, a true pioneer.

Forget about 90...how about 80+??
RnR took a beating last year, we all know that...but now...who is left in the 80+'s club?


Fats Domino (89), Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Buddy 'Motherfucker' Guy.

Some pretty heavy hitters there.


Well John Mayall and our very own Bill Wyman is already 80+

I met him on his birthday in the mid 70ies. Can't remember the exact year.
All of a sudden he stood beside me and my back then girlfriend watching the support act from the back of the packed hall.
We wished him a "Happy Birthday" and he turned over to us with a smile.
Guess he recognized me for not more than half a second then he went over
to my really good looking girlfriend (a bushy bushy blonde hairdo she got).
He mumbled some words to her then he gave me, with a big grin, a clap on my shoulder, called me a lucky guy  and left to go on stage. On this day he let everybody who wanted enter the stage to sing and dance
or do whatever. It was one of his really good concerts. Well, this was my moment with Chuck.

RIP Chuck and thanks for the music.
Guess I didn't play any other intro more often on my guitars than the one of Johnny B Goode.

How great Chuck would have sounded singing Big Boys.  I don't know why a new-material record didn't follow the Hail, Hail Rock 'n' Roll movie.  Some biographer needs to explain that one.

Chuck had a studio fire in the late 80's and everything was destroyed. This album has many tracks that he had worked on back then, just newly recorded.

I never liked that "tombstone" outside Berry Park.  Luckily, it took him 50-odd years to claim it.  It's like a cenotaph for his recording career, however.

A giant and as amazing and appreciated as he was, he is still criminally underrated. The way I look at it is if you take Chuck Berry out of American music, it's hard to imagine if it would even exist in its current form. There is almost no one else you can say that about.

Agree...except add Johnny Johnson who was the "inspiration" to many of the great Berry tunes.

Well, as you know there are a lot of pictures of Chuck Berry with members of the Stones, some of them posted in this thread in excellent definition and big size however instead of changing the header on a daily basis with pictures of Chick and members of the Stones I decided to use this one for the whole week; the reason, see Paul. Leonard and Keith they all are in awe listening to Chuck showing admiration and respect, how cool!

Perhaps they wanted to keep things more focused on Chuck Berry as opposed to all the cameras being on them, but they sure don't show up to too many of these things. It would have been nice if at least one of them showed up.

The Beatles and Stones eclipsed everyone before them. You really can't have members from either band show up to pay respects because the entire room shifts to them. Let's not even get on the topic of how you'd handle security. Can't have those guys with the common folk.
