John Lennon once said "if rock and roll had another name it would surely be called Chuck Berry".

love Lennon's quote
a very nice tribute line

what a loss
so many hits
hard to believe his only #1 was the ding a ling thing

this one seems appropriate
he has met the promised land

RIP Chuck Berry.

I know his song, Johnny B. Goode [video]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFo8-JqzSCM[/video]

album was originally meant to be released in January according to reports towards the end of 2016:
not sure why it wasn't released then???
I wouldn't expect much from it, but i'd still give it a listen out of respect for the man and his influence on popular music.

Clem Curtis (the foundations)

aged 67
cause of death: lung cancer:

The Foundations' biggest hit was their debut single from 1967, "baby now that I found you"
but my personal favourite was the Mike D'Abo penned one linked below:
