Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017)
I must have listened to Roll Over Beethoven a hundred times the summer I was 15.
Nails it. He was one of the two persons on earth that makes / made me smile the moment I see them. No matter how old he was, he always had this boyish, roguish smile in him defying aging by refusal. What a loss.
Makes me realize how old I am getting, everyone I grew up with is dead. May he rest in peace. As they say gone but not forgotten. He will live on forever in his music that touched so many lives and so many yet to come.
