The Passing of Chuck Berry aged 90

For a number of years I made a point of trying to get to every concert by a legend that came within driving distance. A few got through the cracks, but I am very happy that I reached this goal with so many greats.

Chuck Berry, inventor of rock and roll, was so much fun to see live. His energy and enthusiasm were infectious.  He never lost that little kid feeling and he seemed to feel blessed to do what he as doing for a living.   A very important person in history alone, not just music, but he broke down many barriers.  Living until 90 gave us that extra time to see this legend.  Opening up for the Grateful Dead at an outdoor race track was a great place to experience that rock and roll music.

It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
