Wen he gets (up) in de mornin' he feels bad, and wen (he) goes to bed at night he feels wusser. He tinks dat his body is made ob ice cream, all 'cept his heart, and dat - dat's a piece ob lead in de middle. All sorts ob sights are hubbering around, and red monkeys is buzzing about his ears... (D)em's what I calls de bloos - Sam Jonsing, in an 1839 New Orleans newspaper

To a flawed genius. And as somebody once said, if a man among you have no sin upon their hands, let him cast a stone at me for playing in the band.

RIP Chuck.

Flawed genius. Perfect description. Shocking what they found when the police raided his house back in 1990.

I think it was through Chuck Berry and boogie woogie piano I found my way to the blues.  RIP Charles Edward Anderson Berry

Rolling Stone, of course has a great look back at 40 years.  A good place to start:
