R.I.P. CHUCK BERRY – MY HERO.

This is a tough one folks…and it’s hitting me really hard. My 1st guitar hero, the architect & founding father of rock ‘n’ roll guitar playing, songwriting & singing is gone. Stay tuned here for more reflections on Chuck but for now I’ll just say that I’m so glad that my brother John & I got to play an entire show with him – all those amazing songs. He even gave me a few solos, but more on this later. Rest In Peace Chuck…my musical dad… grand-dad…inspiration… savior… influence… teacher… hero.
