Chuck Berry (1926-2017)

“Chuck Berry (1926-2017)” By C. A. Brown

Earlier this morning, I read the sad news that Chuck Berry had died. Although I’ve only heard a few of his more famous songs, I suddenly realised that virtually all of the heavy metal and punk songs on the playlist I was listening to at the time probably wouldn’t exist if Chuck Berry hadn’t invented and/or popularised rock and roll during the 1950s.
