Rock n' Roll has been a major driving force in my life since I was 11. After a while I realized that Chuck Berry was mostly to thank for the colossal chain reaction that led to all the music that I loved and worshiped. All the music that gave me strength, identity, and a place on this earth. Hail hail Rock n' Roll.
I took this photo of Chuck Berry in 2010. I had traveled to St. Louis for my birthday just to see him. He could barely play and sang into a microphone stand with no microphone in it for most the show. But there he was playing and singing. It was amazing. #ripchuckberry
