'''Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry''' (born 18th October 1926) is a famous RockAndRoll singer and guitarist best known for his string of pioneering hit singles during TheFifties. Indisputably one of the most important and influential performers of all time, his best known songs include "Johnny B. Goode", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Maybellene" and many more. It's generally considered that if it weren't for the racism at the time of his fame, Berry would have been crowned "King Of Rock And Roll" instead of Music/ElvisPresley by a vast majority.

years. On his 90th birthday in 2016, he announced that he was working on new songs for the first time since 1979, after decades of insisting he was too old to put out any more work.

Added DiffLines:

** Casey, the protagonist of "Too Pooped To Pop" is an elderly man who hangs out at teen dances, so he could well have been one (though the song is more critical of his dancing skills).

Added DiffLines:

** "Thirty Days" is a pretty blatant knockoff of "Maybellene".


Added DiffLines:

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: The Latin-tinged ballad "Drifting Heart" and the calypso-style "Havana Moon" were notable changes-of-pace from his early rock sound.

Added DiffLines:

** "Little Queenie" and "Run Rudolph Run" have identical guitar intros and generally sound like one another (the main difference is that Berry didn't write "Run Rudolph Run").

Although his output slowed after a run-in with the law which saw him convicted for some time (in circumstances similar to those that wrecked the career of Music/JerryLeeLewis) and his hit-making period was over by the mid 1960s (with the exception of his only number-one hit, 1972's "My Ding-A-Ling"), Berry's influence on subsequent performers was significant. He was widely covered and cited as a favourite by many British Invasion groups, including Music/TheAnimals, Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheHollies, Music/TheKinks, Music/ThePrettyThings, Music/TheRollingStones and Music/TheYardbirds.
