And while we’re on the subject of Rock ‘n’ Roll Kings, here’s the most unsung hero of the genre: CHUCK BERRY. Inventor of the duck-walk, the ding-a-ling, and many insist, the entire concept of rock ‘n’ roll guitaring itself. The Chucker’s contribution to modern history cannot be over-emphasized. He first assaulted the Top Forty ‘way back in ’55, and even today, between jaunts to the slammer and The Merv Griffin Show, Mr. Berry still out-riffs and out-rhymes all comers. Let us pause for a moment, to offer humble praise and prayer to this undeniable Pop God.
