Roll Over, Beethoven and Thank You, Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry = Rock & Roll. My three cents.

My first rock and roll 45 was "My Ding-A-Ling." A Christmas gift from a hip uncle and Chuck's only #1. 

The first rock and roll number I performed on stage with a band was the Beatles' arrangement of Chuck Berry's "Rock And Roll Music." I've never looked back.

For my 19th birthday, I bought myself a ticket to check out Chuck Berry in DC. Some college classmates laughed because I was going to see a 60 year old has-been. I saw the duck walk.

I don't think Chuck Berry wouldn't want nobody to cry over him, he'd want you to turn that record up!

Roll over, Beethoven and make way for Mr. Chuck Berry.
