Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017)

"Maybeline" was Chuck Berry's first song and set the rhyme and rhythm for what will probably be the next hundred years. And "Johnny B. Goode" is perhaps the classic of classics. But I always have been partial to "Nadine", here from the movie, “Hail, Hail Rock 'n' Roll".

"I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin' toward a coffee colored cadillac
I was pushin' through the crowd to get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat"

(turn it up…that's enough)
