    President George W. Bush said Chuck Berry was a huge influence in his teenage years, as he was to many people world wide wherever we had a radio.
    I know a nurse from Indonesia where rock music was not allowed. But with a cheap transistor radio she heard it on an Australian station.

    He definitely defined a generation of music that I grew up on as well.

    Our musical artists are aging, just like we are.

    Thanks for the videos herring!

    Rest in peace Mr. Berry.

    It was 1971 when I first saw Chuck Berry in concert in St.Louis. Of course he put on a marvelous concert, was entertaining, told stories, sang his hits, did the duck walk. A great memory- sitting on that hill that overlooked the stadium on that hot, dry summer afternoon.

    Actually, I believe Mr. Berry is going to "Roll Over Beethoven"!
