Chuck Berry Passed Away Today...

I just saw this terrible news that Chuck Berry passed away today at the age of 90... He certainly lived to a good age and he rock 'n' rolled all through his 90 years.

I was watching a Stones flick called "Crossfire Hurricane", with Keith Richards talking about Chuck Berry when I heard of his passing...

From 1987's "Hail Hail Rock and Roll"- listen to Chuck coming in at 1.45:

Sitting in a sweaty, s**thole dive room in south India when I heard this. Makes it feel even hotter, stickier, dirtier and crappier now...

I had to explain to my wife who he was. ProTip: Don't pick a second wife who is significantly younger than you....
