My all time favorite rock and roll memory happened in 1963 in a club in St. Louis's old Gaslight Square district. He had been released from prison that day and just walked in and sat in on guitar with the band. He blew everyone away. I was barely five feet away from him, and can still see him as clear as day.

Sad to see the end of an era may he R.I.P.
On of my recollections of him is when he released the record of “My Ding-a-Ling” when that stupid sad old woman called Mary Whitehouse started shooting her stupid mouth off over it being a rude record and tried to get it banned-if only she had listened to the lyrics at the beginning she would see it wasn’t so…… the result was that it sold far more than it should have in the UK , she did Chuck Berry a favour, he was laughing all the way to the bank :!: :o

I was lucky to meet Chuck once as he was escorting his mother through Soulard Farmer's Market on the near south side of St. L. He was very cordial and requested I not make any fuss so they might continue their shopping unmolested.

His music and the myriad musicians he influenced with it will live on in their recordings forever.

You know,,,, this is so true. It is hard for me to believe but, many of the guys I work with over here in Iraq on this contract are young and when I read that Chuck Berry had passed away, I was talking about it in the shop, most of them had no Idea who he was. :o

That's because they are familiar with musicians influenced by musicians influenced by musicians influenced by Chuck Berry's work. They probably don't know their great-grandfathers' names, either.

I daresay you'll get a blank stare from any of them if you ask if they know who Link Wray was, but if you asked Jimmy Page, you'd get a big grin.
