What a trailblazer! I loved his music when I was young and see it influencing music today.

Rest in peace, Mr Berry.

Told this story before, but it's fitting for the occasion.

I had a lot of musical influences growing up, and being surrounded by family
and friends with a wide variance of tastes in music. I consider that a blessing
now as I learned to listen to and appreciate all kinds of music and later learn
about those genres origins. My first delve into Rock Music came from my Mom.
She liked a lot of older 30s/40s stuff, but was at the age in my pre teen years
to have been middle aged in the mid 50s and she embraced the early days of
Rock and blues. Dad was strictly a Country / Western and Gospel man, and
that's all we heard when we got our first stereo console (while he was home).
HOWEVER, when he went to work, mom used to clean the house and do her
normal routine with Bill Haley and the Comets, Fats Domino AND ..Chuck Berry
playing. I loved the atmosphere when Dad was at work, and mom had control
of the music. She was a big fan of Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry. As I grew
up, I migrated towards that path of music, and eventually in my teen years
settled in with R&B Rock, Blues and harder edge RnR as my personal taste. I made
it a point to appreciate the other types of music that I grew up with, but I credit
my mom more for my personal choice in music. ...... I still recall Chuck Berry's
music surrounding the house and burning it's appeal into my psyche.

Hail Hail Rock n Roll .....as defined by Mr. Chuck Berry

I grew up listening to "Oldies" at the house because of my mom and dad, and at family reunions. Of course, Chuck Berry as well as many other 50s stars such as Jerry Lee, Elvis, and Buddy Holly were at the forefront. But I always got a double dose of Berry when they would play the Beach Boys since a couple of songs were clearly ripped off from Berry's music.

Anyways Chuck Berry lived a long full life, and he gave us memorable tunes along the way.
