    Thank goodness Marty McFly gave him that 'new sound'. Where would we be?

    Seriously, one of the greats that shaped the soundtrack of many of our lives.

    He definitely influenced the path of a lot of popular music. Sorry to see him go.

    Indeed it was a loss. Growing up in the 60's, my music of choice was rock and roll....and you didn't listen to that without hearing Chuck Berry.

    I have an LP of his that I bought in the mid 1960's that I never opened. I think I paid about $2.00 for it. I don't know why I bought it I never cared too much for his music.

    Damn! No one lives forever, but his music just might.
