Chuck Berry dies at 90. If you judge musicians by who they influenced this guy is the goat. He was an essential genetic mutation in the music gene pool that took blues and r&B and rockabilly and somehow put it together no make what became rock and roll.

 

Berry himself was a lonely, haunted and troubled man, but his life's work speaks for itself.

GSP is a safe can
He's a dented can the can that just sits on the shelf because its dented. The workers dont get rid of the can either because they hope someone buys it. It just collects dust

Chuck is up there with BB King and Robert Johnson for most influential blues artists. If not the most influential.

I won't lie I thought someone that was one of Jimi Hendrix's early influences would be dead by now.  BB was still performing in his 80s but I don't think Chuck did anything the last few decades.  They were old as **** by the time they finally died.

I don't consider him a blues artist. He was the guy that adapted the new music for guitar.

Two big factors which prevented him from reaching stardom:

 

1.  Record labels back then refused to promote African American Artists.

 

2.  Berry was an overall *****bag.

lol

 

spent 20 months in prison for Mann Act violation in the 19060 to 63 period.

 

would never again be promotable as a main stream act which is why he spent his life playing one night stands in small venues. 

 

lots of great artists are **** bags. has nothing to do with the art.
