Hey, Johnny it's nice to meet you.Likewise Sy and thanks for the kind words.
Right now I'm watching "Hail, Hail, Rock and Roll," the Chuck Berry documentary. I saw it when it was first released back in the mid-80s. It's been playing on one of the movie channels this month. I DVRed it and I'm watching it now. I was also lucky enough to have seen Chuck live around the same time in a small gym on The University of Buffalo's campus. What a showman and musician.No disrespect to Elvis or his fans, but Chuck Berry is the TRUE king of rock n' roll. As you said jonny, and amazing musician and showman-a true innovator of lead guitar, Without Chuck, alot of players I admire would have been dramatically different. My favorite scene in that movie jonny is when Keith is explaining that chuck wanted to just change the key midway throught the first song, and Keith just shakes his head no. Classic!
