Hello Chuck Junior,
there are no words to say what I want to say to your father, as chuck berry is for me the most 'great modern music!
We feel the same. I learned that this life is too fast to be able to explain well and so I explain in a few words (among others in poor English, using a translator, I hope I understand).
I have only one desire: that you say to your father THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!
At times my life was sad, but the few times I saw his concert (3 or 4) live I moved as a child.
For me, Chuck Berry is the joy of living, the admiration of view to 80 years, unmindful of the criticisms
around the world.
I have the impression that your father has not received all the consideration it deserved.
Its history know from the autobiography and other books.
Fosse for me Chuck Berry should be a monument of American music. But we realize?
It 'still on stage while musicians who have made the history of rock as hendrix, presley and all other
if they are not dead, had to slow down ...... and yet are osannati as heroes!
Life sometimes is sad. But I think that if Chuck has arrived with this energy to date: has taken in the right way.
ps: the sexual scandals, true or false, I do not care anything. I never understood this moralism
the Americans (type case Clinton).
For me, Chuck is a legend for that too!
In conclusion I have only one desire: that you should say to your father that there are people in the world,
they consider the most 'great and not only rock'n'roll (as said john lennon) and which gave
beautiful moments of life in lives many times sad.
For me, Chuck Berry is the greatest, and despite the guitar sound not succeed 'never to have
its CLASS and its SIMPATY.
