Default At 87 Chuck Berry Is Still Rocking...........

When most people at 87 are just happy to put on their slippers one foot at a time. Chuck Berry is still out there with slight difficulty playing the songs that made him a legendary! The man is one of the few left.

Man, I just assumed he'd kicked the bucket a while ago.

i assumed he's been busy watching old women pee.

im not surprised he is still out rocking though, as a guitarist he has a forever young kinda spirit.
Some musicians quit after awhile but others are musicians until they die.

As much as I love Chuck Berry, he should have retired from the road years ago. This is painful to listen to...

Who is actually going to tell Chuck Berry to pack up his guitar and head for the old folks home? Few out there can say they are a actual rock and roll legend.

I'll do it. Doesn't take being a legend to tell someone they suck these days.

lol ok you made your point but to be fair that song is not that easy to play.
the original version is fairly fast and precise and yea once he rocked that sh*t but now he can't recreate it like he used to.

If we are aware of this Chuck and his band are aware of it too but that song is a fan favorite so i imagine they are forced to plow through it at every show.

True, but only a classless fool would suggest such a stunt, or someone who doesn't appreciate what Chuck Berry has done for music......
