Just saw the story. The first inductee into the Rock Hall of Fame is gone. Like a lot of kids back then, he was one of the reasons I started playing guitar. I got to meet him twice when he played in Cleveland. Duck walk with the angels, sir.

Amen Eddie. When I was 12 in 1958 I went to bed every night listening to all night radio stations. Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis were burned into my soul then. I still listen to them.

Very much a top-of-the-"A"-list entertainer, innovator, songwriter and musician. Popular music as we know it would not exist without him. RIP

He gave us the first R&R sweetheart, "Sweet Little 16", the first R&R guitar hero "Johnny B Goode", the first R&R car songs, "Maybellene" and "No Money Down", was a first class showman, singer, and songwriter.

IMHO Berry and Presley were the two most important people in early Rock & Roll. Everyone who followed owes them a debt.

RIP Mr. Berry. The music in heaven will be a little better tonight.

Pretty much played to his grave. The wife and I last saw him perform a few years ago here in the STL.

Key signature says it's in C. Music says it's in A. Doesn't it? No sharps, no flats... First notes a root and 5th of A? confused

Nah, it's clearly in E major, 'cuz it's played by an "E-Guitar". laugh

That reminds me of that horrible pun-based joke.

In what key is someone before they turn 21?

A minor.

Eddie,

I am sorry. I did not put the key signature. It is actually in Bb (original key) though a lot of people play it in A.

In the movie Back to the Future it leads to one of the great misleading musical quotes of all time, when Marty tells the band it's in B. Again, it's actually in Bb.

Don't know how he did it really. There's a lot of stuff flying to keep your head on straight in that key. Tricky. He was a great player.

Great story. When he played here once, he had called ahead to have the local union arrange for a back up band and it happened to be all guys I knew very well. When I saw them the next week, they said it was a NIGHTMARE trying to follow him. Just for no reason in mid song he would change key. They told me that at one point he played an intro and then did a totally different song than what the intro was for and was not anywhere on the set list, which he did not follow at all anyway. Fortunately 75% of his stuff was exactly the same kind of vamp with different lyrics. At one point he was doing My Ding-a-Ling and in mid verse he popped out into Maybeline with no notice.

They wondered if he did it to make the backing band look bad so he looked better.

You see the documentary that Keith Richards was in and produced about a concert with Chuck Berry? Chuck jumped all over him for not playing on of his licks correctly...a lot of the film was contentious but still very entertaining.
