R.I.P. Johnny B. Goode

I guess it's inevitable, but it's never easy to lose another childhood guitar legend.
Damn. Sad

Yeah... he's a biggie, no question! His loss doesn't have the same shock value to me as, say, Bowie or Prince but, bugger!!

Chuck's music and his guitar licks had an enormous influence on everything back in the day.

I still remember listening to him on 45 rpm records (ask your grandad about those kids) and watching him on Dick Clark's Bandstand.

Just the craziest thing to see him play while duck-walking. Big stuff then.
