    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?

    Dang. :-(
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    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?
