Sunday Concert - Chuck Berry RIP

The Father of Rock Has Died
"I grew up thinking art was pictures until I got into music and found I was an artist and didn't paint." 
Chuck Berry

In a racist and segregated 1950s America the Media Machine pushed the "safe" boy band type Elvis as the King.

Sorry, the only King of Rock then and now is Chuck Berry.

Charles Edward Anderson "ChuckBerry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958). 

Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive.
