Happy Birthday Chuck Berry!

Today in 1926, Charles Edward Anderson Berry, also known famously as Chuck Berry, was born. 

In the early '50's, he joined some bands and was playing the blues. Through blues legend Muddy Waters, he was signed to Chess Records and started recording and his music took a more R 'n' B approach, to what later became rock n' roll.

His signature songs are "Maybellene" and "Johnny B Goode". He's still rocking out until today. 

Here's the timeless classic from 1958, "Johnny B Goode", and just for fun, I've also added the video from "Back to Future" with Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly performing this song with hilarious results!

 Have a good one Chuck... here's for more and more years of music!
