    Default Chuck Berry RIP

    Without this guy music wouldnt be what it is today.
    and...

    If it wasn't for Marty McFly's performance at the enchantment under the sea Dance who knows where chuck would be now.
    Try this: Google "who is the father of rock 'n' roll?"

    Oh no, not Chuck Berry - definitely one of the greats and, it could be argued, the inventor of rock and roll.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    A great musician yes, but hardly a role model! Whilst he clearly had a difficult early life he got up to a lot of shitty stuff even in his later years!

    Is an obituary thread a good place for condemnation of a much liked man who has just died?
