Happy 90th Birthday To The Real King Of Rock N’ Roll!

I’ve always been a huge Elvis fan…but Elvis was never the real “king” of rock n’roll.  Elvis was a crooner who could rock. Jerry Lee Lewis was a rocker (and one of the greatest) who could croon. Today’s birthday boy, Chuck Berry, was (and is) the real king of rock n’ roll; a great singer, guitar player AND songwriter…a true R&R triple threat!

And today, as Chuck turns 90, the word is out that a new album is on the way. I have no idea what it will be like and, truthfully, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that anyone of us who ever picked up a guitar, joined a band, or wrote a pop song owes a huge debt of gratitude to the man who created all the classic templates for a rock song and the classic attitude to perform them. Hail, hail, Chuck Berry!
