    He just kinda ruled.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    A linked video that appeared with this one titled, "Chuck Berry Punched Keith Richards in the Face." Didn't click the link since I'm working.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Another great story song, somewhat obscure. I wish I could see footage of him do it live; he was a consummate showman.

    The excellent lyrics, author lost to history.

    There's an audio clip out there where Paul McCartney was asked something about the impetus to The Beatles and their sound. McCartney replied, and I'm paraphrasing here, We wanted to sound like Chuck Berry and (forgot the name said), but we just couldn't match that sound, so we made our own. And when you listen The Beatles' cover of Roll Over Beethoven, he wasn't wrong. It's not like they had a horrible cover of it, but they couldn't quite match the sound/feel.
