    I liked the way Chuck showed Keef how to do the 'slur'. He got it on the third attempt, and then still ****************ed it up on when they went back in! That's Keef for you.

        [QUOTE=GAS Man;47373687I got a kick out of Keith's comments about "that was what he knew he was going to do". And then when he says he didn't expect to make a living at it, but even if he "ended up being an Accountant and doing it as a hobby" because - that's me

                It's always fun to watch overrated musicians act like Gods and fumble through simple blues songs. haha

                    My favorite part is at around the 5 minute mark of the video were Chuck takes over playing the licks he basically invented so much better than Keef...
                    Guitars = Chick Magnet
                    Guitar Hero = Guy Magnet
                    You do the math.

                        I was the drummer in one of those bands in the early 80s. Yeah there's a bit of pressure the first night because it's him, but you are playing songs you've already played a hundred times in your life and heard thousands of times. So you go on automatic, and keep your eyes on him to follow the cues.... keeping in mind that no one is there to see you, they are there to see the legend.

                        I thought he only did that kind of touring after his hey day.



                        I remember hearing a story (told by Bruce Springsteen) about him being in one of those "pick up bands" when Chuck Berry came through. I can't imagine the pressure of having to be able to jump right in their with Chuck with him being as particular as he is.

                            I don't blame Chuck one bit. I get really pissy when someone phucks with my gear.

                                that whole documentary is hilarious. Keith gets so pissed but doesn't really say anything because its freaking Chuck Berry. There's one scene during the show where Chuck asks to change the key halfway through the song and Keef shuts him down
