All Apologies To Chuck Berry

So a couple of weeks ago I hatcheted a Chuck Berry song for a post title.  It's another yucky Monday morning and I need another shot of something stronger than coffee to get me moving.  Chuck Berry will do nicely, actually. 

There are some guitar sounds that just light me up.  Stevie Ray Vaughan is one and Chuck Berry is another one.  If happy-go-lucky had a sound it would one of Chuck Berry's ringing licks, like this one.

I'm sure you noticed there that Chuck came out by himself and joined the houseband.  Yeah, he does that all the time.  He's possibly the only musician in the world who travels alone and uses whatever local band happens to be available.  When you go to see Chuck Berry you go to see HIM.  Really, that should be all you need, right?

Every once in a while, though, one or another of his admirers decides to back him and you wind up with something like this.

Okay, gang, up and at 'em.  Oh yeah, there's a song for that, too.

Have a great Monday!


  1. I love classic rock and roll. And there is nobody like the great Chuck Berry. :)
