A Brief History Of Chuck Berry
Pioneer is often too strong a word, but it doesn’t come close to describing Chuck Berry – a man who singlehandedly changed the course of pop music forever.
After troubled beginnings in St. Louis, Missouri, Berry began gigging in bars and clubs around the city to support his wife and young family. He was a bluesman at heart, but soon branched out into country music to appease the tastes of white clientele at the venues he played.
Spurred on by a few years on the circuit, he was curious enough to start laying down the country stuff in front of black audiences too. Before long, the mixed reactions to this new sound turned into regular requests.
Berry eventually met Muddy Waters, who introduced him to Leonard Chess of Chess Records fame. Their relationship bloomed from the off, and Chess encouraged Berry to veer away from traditional blues and start recording upbeat tracks like ‘Maybelline’ and ‘Roll Over Beethoven’. These songs would define the Chuck Berry sound and, along with it, the concept of rock ‘roll.
Unlike many of his contemporaries, Berry’s touring schedule spanned decades rather than years. Perhaps most telling of his contribution to music is that ‘Johnny B. Goode’ is the only rock ‘n roll song included on the Voyager Gold Record, currently floating into the deep reaches of space.
Good to know that vital fuel for air guitar and duck-walking may soon be coming to a solar system near you.
