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.

A music great for sure. He will be missed.
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.
