John Lennon was quoted as saying something to the effect of "if you could give Rock n Roll another name, it would be Chuck Berry". I think that says it all. RIP Chuck, and thank you for all you did.

I think that I may have posted this in the "Favorite YouTube Videos" thread a year or more ago.  But given the context of this thread I thought it appropriate to post this here again.

 

Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards jam!
