Happy Birthday, Chuck Berry!

Ninety years ago today, one of the all-time greats in the history of American pop music was born.

Chuck Berry will always be remembered for the "duck walk" and the signature riff, but he never does get enough credit as one of the all-time great songwriters.

That's why EVERYONE covers Chuck Berry:

“If you had to give rock’n’roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry” -John Lennon

“Why should I write songs when Chuck Berry wrote them all?” -George Thorogood

Everyone who makes money off rock 'n roll should pay royalties to Chuck Berry.

If there ever was an example of the philosophy of love the art, hate the artist, it's C.B.

It's always great to see any of the creative originals from the early-to-earlier heydays of rock n'roll get their just recognition.
