His was probably one of the first 45rpm records I owned. I forget which song, after so long. RIP Chuck.

Not what I wanted to read after a very long, and very bad day. RIP Chuck. You were the fucking man! Sleeping in your own car gigging, is legendary, and your work was legendary. Thank you for your music!



GUNS! Now why doesn't somebody pull out a 45 and bang! Swettle it.

Bo Diddley too. Had the privilege of seeing both he and Chuck Berry. The energy and driving guitar were incredible. Here is a sample from 1968:

HA! I looked up "gunny sack" on Wikipedia. Someone had slipped this tribute in:

"Reusable gunny sacks, typically holding about 45 kg, were traditionally, and to some extent still are, used for transporting grains, potatoes, guitars and other agricultural products." Gunny Sack

These guys, Chuck and Bo, were the musical heroes of my youth. Never did learn to play a guitar "like ringing a bell" or any other way. One of my few disappointments in life .
