TUNES TUESDAY – (enjoy grooving on a Tuesday with some music, especially an old favorite or something totally new!!)

One of the most important persons in the history of rock and roll celebrated October 18. It’s his 84th birthday!! Chuck Berry came from St. Louis to record here at Chess Records, took a bit of influence from Muddy Waters and country music, added lyrics that read like poetry for teenagers, and played some of the greatest guitar licks of all time. And the duck walk. Cool. John Lennon once said, “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’”. So let’s celebrate with some music. Long live rock…and Chuck. And amazingly he still lives 10 miles from St. Louis!

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
