** 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).

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


Added DiffLines:

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.
