Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry was my hero…I wanted to play guitar like him and wanted to write songs like him even though I knew nothing I could come up with would ever come close to his originality, crisp, perfectly crafted lyrics and without knowing I even found myself a great piano player in Daryl Hall just like Chuck found Johnnie Johnson…it wasn’t planned but it happened. Every rock and roller in the world owes a debt to Chuck Berry. His songs will never die…”Hail Hail Rock and Roll.”

I’d like to offer a free download of my version of ” Let It Rock ” from my Mississippi Mile album…
