Arrogant, tight fisted, a bully to whichever band he was working with, technically limited.
Brilliant, unique, a great wordsmith, iconic, (in the true sense of the word). A real one off, without whom, many musicians, myself included, might never have had a career.
My hat is off to you Chuck, you grumpy, fabulous old bugger. RIP.

He was an icon no doulbt about it,

Little richard, james brown, and chuck berry...no wonder rock made boys into gods with founders like those guys

He is my number 1 for more than 55 Years Chuck liked himself (and his Cadillac’s) a lot and has done a lot of things that were no good at all. Johnnie Johnson, his band leader and piano player, was the only one he listened to on stage. And Yes at the end of his live he was technically limited.
In the beginning of his career he was simple and brilliant. Listen to Chucks and Bo’s beat on 2 great guitars 1964. Bo distorted the guitar sound as one of the first on this album. I listen to it every week. Chuck’s slow ballads (the Bio album) are not so well known but I like them more than Johnny be good. The “country boy” in Johnny be good, originally was a colored boy, a lot of his lyrics are very critical about the society. The lyrics are also simple but generate great feelings and you can almost see what he describes. Johnnie Johnson and Lafayette Leake contributed a lot. He took their piano chords on guitar. Chuck has an African way of changing tones and rhythm it takes time lots of time to get used to that. Not everybody likes it.
Chuck is my number 1.

End of an era for sure.

Thanks, Chuck for the great music over the years.
