Rock ‘n’ Roll Says Farewell To A Legend

Saturday, March 18, 2017:  Rock ‘n’ Roll Legend, Chuck Berry dies at age 90.

As notorious as he was, Chuck Berry made many milestones in his musical career.  Yes, Elvis Presley had the eyes and ears (and hearts) of all teenage girls.  Yet, it was Chuck Berry song that seemed to depict what teen rockers really wanted.  It is almost as if he knew before they did.

  1. Chuck Berry is the reason we have great rock guitarists like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, John Lennon and countless others. Even the Beach Boys copied his sound and were sued for it. His legacy will live on. Nice tribute, Teresa!
