There shall be a stop to this madness. The battle is not over. My tasty licks aren't going anywhere.

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

I did hear about him being a huge jerk/diva in real life, but he really seemed to have mellowed and become pleasant in his later years. Either way, his impact on music is unquestionable. I was looking forward to his new album - still am. It's a huge loss.

Think about the era he was playing in, a black man playing rock n roll in a white dominate country.
You had to be bold, and have somewhat of an ego to survive, they were still lynching blacks then.

True. To that extent it might be justified. But some other stuff I read he did to his fans and people who supported him wasn't (denying an autograph to Brian Johnson in quite an arrogant way, the way he treated some women during sex, etc.). Still, like I said, I do believe he mellowed, and his music is priceless either way.

I just don't delve that deeply into muscians/artist lives, I'm there for their talent and not much else.
It seems these days personal lives are oh so important.

As far as Brian Johnson goes, another drunk Aussie complaining about something that happened in 1975 shows you what he's made of, still holding a grudge all these years later.

On that note, I want to say I didn't really know what rock n roll was until I saw ACDC in Seattle with Bon Scott, they warmed up for Cheap Trick (laugh) and Ted Nugent.
I had no idea who ACDC was, and the audience was booing them, Bon Scott would say "thank you thank you" while they booed and hucked shoes and crap at him.
Then during a song Bon Scott gets down into the audience, Angus got on his shoulders and they wade out into the crowd with Angus kicking anyone trying to grab his guitar right in the face, playing the whole time.

Blew me away, that was rock n roll.
After that, the audience cheered them, no more booing, and after ACDC's set Cheap Trick seemed exactly that, a cheap trick.
Brian Johnson was always ever just a stand in...

I was actually gonna like your post until the last line. Brian was as electric as Bon in his own way. It's just that AC/DC weren't booed anymore at that point. I love your description of Bon and Angus though, that really was rock'n'roll
Personal lives aren't important for the most part, but most celebrities don't bother to keep them private so they become a part of their public image, and for a kid whose hero they could be... yeah.

Great icon, dirty old man! My dad (bassist) played as his support band for a show in a Swansea back in the late 1970s to early 1980s, he turned up shortly before playing with just his guitar, no amp or leads or anything (they had to provide) and the guys in the band had to tune his guitar for him because he would have fully just played it straight from the case according to them, he walked on stage and played the set and then said "thanks boys" and left.

The story was told in good spirits about Chuck, as if he had that charming rockstar carefree no fucks given approach.

I love that, no fucks given and none taken.
RIP Chuck Berry.

I learned the intro riff of "Johnny B. Goode" today, shortly after learning he was dead. I discovered his music too late to listen to much of it while he was still alive. Now I kinda wish I'd been alive already when Rock 'n' Roll was born.

I was thinking about Maybelline today during my current fandom of Gravity Falls wondering if Mable was short for Maybelline?- His music lives on to today even - in that it still found itself into this psyche when thinking about a cartoon show I've recently gotten into. Of course his influence spawned rock as it was known with The Rolling Stones; for if it wasn't for millions of young kids listening to his records 'back in the day' we wouldn't have had music like it was, like how it happened if it wasn't for this gentleman...
He probably was even the guy who made guitar cool, I owe so much to him for that and it is with fondness that I think of Chuck Berry, God rest his soul. Great great man, and so sadly lost as I heard he had an album coming out this year of all new material too - his first studio album out in a generation.

One of Chuck's best TBH:

"A well-wound coil is a well-wound coil regardless if it's wound with professional equipment, or if somebody's great-grandmother winds it to an old French recipe with Napoleon's modified coffee grinder and chops off the wire after a mile with an antique guillotine!"

Come and be with me
Live my twisted dream

That's honestly one of Chuck's worst. It's a novelty and it baffles me how of all his hits, thats the only one that reached #1 (under Billboard 100).
