Go Go Chuck-B.-Goode, R.I.P.
Chuck Berry, the rock and roll pioneer, died yesterday. He had his own beat and it seemed to be surrounded by happiness.
We saw him in concert years ago (before kids) at Six Flags Over Georgia's outside pavilion. We arrived a little ahead of the scheduled performance and as usual were the first ones there. We watched the laborers set up the stage, moving speakers, a piano, and other items on the stage. Wait! One of those helping lift the piano and move it was the one and only Chuck Berry.
His daughter, a beautiful young lady, co-sung with him many songs that night, and I was somewhat amused some of the lyrics were sexual suggestive. Digest that one. Wow!
Chuck died at age 90.
