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:
