  • RIP Chuck Berry, gone at 90

    Deeply saddened by this news...having met the man, backed him and learned so much about guitar playing and songwriting by studying him...I feel I have lost a mentor.
    "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting ', what a ride!'

      He was a true original. Since he was a native St. Louisan it's been all over local TV. He'll be missed.
