"No Particular Place to Go" by Chuck Berry

If you have not heard yet, the legendary Chuck Berry has died. It would be difficult to find an artist who had more influence on rock 'n' roll. He endowed rock 'n' roll with a purer electric guitar sound than those few rock 'n' roll stars who preceded him, and he elevated the importance of the guitar solo. Without Chuck Berry we would not have The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, or many other rock bands. In fact, it might well be impossible to find a rock artist who was not influenced by Chuck Berry.

I am busy preparing a very important post for tomorrow, so I don't have time to eulogise Mr. Berry yet. I will then leave you with my all time favourite Chuck Berry song, "No Particular Place to Go".
