    "Man, I really gotta get to the Duck Room and see Chuck Berry," I thought to myself a billion times.

    Goddamn it.

    Had some school thing when I was 9, so Mom and I had a late dinner -- like 8 pm -- at the Howard Johnson's on Fifth Street in St. Charles. About halfway through dinner, Chuck Berry came in, alone, and sat down at a nearby booth. Was happy to give me an autograph.
    I like cheese.

    Without Chuck, the Rolling Stones would have sounded like Herman's Hermits.

    A little known song from the Berry catalogue. And then the Santana version.



    LONG LIVE THE NOTE!

    I think, in this time of giving gratitude for his contributions to music history, we should also thank Chuck's cousin Marvin...for finding that new sound Chuck was looking for...

    As a child growing up in East Boogie I lived on Market Street. Right across from Lincoln Park. Behind me on the next block over was a 500 square feet nightclub. The Cosmopolitan Club was the music home of Chuck Berry when he got his start.

    In addition to the bathroom camera thing, he was also convicted (twice) for violating the Mann act with a 14 year old. While singing his praises let's also not forget that sometimes people who do great things aren't necessarily good people.

    The best thing about that audio was how Yoko's mike was muted. If you look there's another video of the two of them performing "Memphis, Tennessee". Yoko decides to butt in with some horrible off-key yodeling, until her mike goes dead.

    This. Chuck Berry did the kind of shit that's made Roman Polanski and Woody Allen pariahs, and has Bill Cosby facing a lengthy prison term. I guess the lesson here is to commit your statutory rapes in the 1950s on a victim who won't speak up and then when you act like a creepy sexual predator in your own restaurant, do that before the age of the internet and throw a shitload of money at that problem. Then live a long time after all that.

    Can we appreciate their talent in their chosen profession while realizing that they like all of us have their set of flaws?

    I realize you're kind of supporting my position here, but what he had is not a normal set of flaws like "all of us have."
