    The true "King of Rock n Roll"

    He'll not be "resting in peace", he'll be ripping it up forever.

    From now on, if I ever feel like kicking back to some grass roots rock n' roll, I'll have No Particular Place To Go...

    saw this on the internet last night and can't get the blessed song out of my head now ,daft song but made folk smile at a time in the early 1970s when we had so little to laugh about
    Chuck Berry without doubt the inovator of Rock'n' Roll, his foot-tapping Johnny B Goode will last long after some of the music of today. Just to see his big smile and hear his bouncy music made you want to get up and dance, him and Jerry Lee, maestro's of their particular genre

    Thank you Mr Berry you were a treat to listen to Rock away fella

    Well that's certainly true.
    It is out there on the Voyager spacecraft heading into the space between the stars.
    If the micro-meteorites haven't done too much damage, some human descendant might retrieve the record in a few thousand years from now.
    And think how much better the music was back in the 20th Century.

    By the music of today I mean as you very well know some of the droning that passes for today's music .Once upon a time all the world and his dog would recognise the cheerful music with lyrics that everyone could understand not the often unintelligible rubbish that's pumped out under the guise of music. I think most of us would be hard pressed to name the past ten number ones or even who "sang" them. one reason why the Capitol Gold stations and 'golden oldies' last so long in the public psyche is you can hear and understand the lyrics .

    About 20 years ago I went with my mum to see Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. Lewis was utterly useless. Little Richard was good but a bit up himself. Chuck Berry was amazing.

    I also love the Johnny B Goode scene from Back to the Future.
