Chuck Berry with his St. Louis Band at the
Argosy Casino in Alton, Ill. February 18, 2012
here's the setlist - Let It Rock !!
With a Scoot !!Wee Wee HoursMy Dream
Chuck recites some of his poetry while Jimmy tunes the "ol' workhorse". Jimmy returns to the stage and its kinda comical as they play musical chairs with the guitars as Chuck has CBII's guitar, Jimmy has Chuck's and CBII has Jimmy's Bass Guitar and they have to pass them back to one and other !! Nadine
Again a spectacular version of my favorite CB song !! You Never Can Tell
aka - C'este La VieMy Ding a Ling
In between songs Chuck tells the reason he still does this is that he loves his ol' guitar
its worn and battered but CB assures us it does stay in tune
