Subject: RE: Obit: Chuck Berry (1926-2017)
It's hard to imagine how ubiquitous Chuck's music/songs where in the UK back in the first part of the 60s.
I would say that EVERY beat group back then had Chuck's songs in there stage repertoire.
My own favourite, which I used to sing at my local folk club, was the not that well known " No money down".
I only saw Chuck live once, and that was a disappointing performance.
But he certainly was one of the greats.
