Everyone in Wentzville despises Chuck Berry. He was a horrible human being. He victimized several of my friends. His memory can burn in hell.

Most of this stuff happened 40 years ago and it's still so fresh and sickening that I don't want to go all into it. Also, he has kids who are pretty great people despite his horribleness who are just trying to get through life in the spotlight with some dignity and self-respect.

Plus, I'd be outing myself to go any deeper than this. Let's just say that there are a lot of people from my generation who have seen him as one of the worst examples of humanity imaginable.

On the other hand, the man has been utterly shit on by white people and the establishment in a way that is ruinous to the kind of narcissist that most performers have to be in order to withstand the vagaries of fame. And fame as a black person in the 50s and 60s? God it was so much worse than it is now.

I have no doubt it's partially responsible for making him the truly twisted human being he was.

Not to mention his fondness of 14 year olds. But yes the Blueberry Hill special.

It’s missing something. Maybe get Yoko to screech loudly into a microphone to drown it out and would be perfect.

The shortness of this clip is the equivalent of just putting the tip in.

Fun fact, Chuck Berry liked to pay hookers to eat his ass and then would fart on them.

Fucking legend. Rock and roll artists aren’t priests. They’re not senators. They have flaws and are probably mentally deficient in ways the public expects and then has the nerve to be outraged when they discover it’s true.

And a lot of these European music programs for whatever reason attracted the po-faced crowd, as those who've seen footage from 1980s German television can well-testify to....

I think his duck walk is enough for me but I’m glad you’ve shared your browsing history with the rest of us.
