R.I.P., Chuck Berry

As you may have heard, Chuck Berry died yesterday at age 90. A towering figure in popular music, he was one of rock and roll’s first and most important artists and an influence on countless performers.

An exhaustive 16-CD collection of his work appeared last year. Read my review here.Chuck_Berry_1957.

    1. Yes, Cotton was another big loss (though I think Berry was more influential). Alas, at any rate, I have no time now to write a tribute to either of them (the Berry review was penned last fall), because I’m immersed in a new book project.
