fountainhead of the rock guitar and first citizen of the
hallowed halls of rock and roll music, has been hailed by rock
and roll fanatics, guitarists and guitar-lovers of every
generation as the Father of Rock and
He comes closest to being the one individual that can rightfully be credited with inventing rock and roll as weve come to know it today. He is one of the greatest guitarists and song-writers the world has ever known. His seminal influence on the world of music has been acknowledged by every rock musician in his wake.
Chuck Berry not only breathed life into the rock and roll sound, he infused vital energy and spirit into the rock and roll attitude. His masterfully crafted compositions were an astonishing blend of traditional black rhythm and blues with white country, jazz and western licks, and they transcended race, class and age barriers to capture the imagination of a wide variety of cosmopolitan audiences.
The thumping, foot-tapping guitar licks and the magic of the witty, rapid-fire lyrics complete with sly references to cars, girls and growing-up pains became the anthems of a generation.
Berrys music has managed to stand the test of time and reverberated through the ensuing decades to excite music connoisseurs even in the twenty-first century. To this day, his songs are essential listening for every true rock fan. Bequeathing his talent with the reverence it deserves, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Chuck Berry #6 on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. Compliments of Scotty Smith of Guitarists Rock.
