Richard – Jagger – Berry

20. marts 2017


“…that Mick is the greatest R&B singer this side of the Atlantic and I don’t mean maybe. I play guitar (electric) Chuck Style we got us af bass player and drummer and rhythm-guitar and we practice 2 or 3 nights a week. SWINGIN’. […] I just can’t lay off Chcuk Berry though, I recently got an LP of his straight from Chess Records Chicago cost me less than an English record.[… ] “I looked at my watch / It was four-o-five/ Man I didn’t know/ If I was dead or alive”/ Quote Chuck Berry/ Reeling and a Rocking”

[Keith Richard til Pat, april 1962 – cit. fra Life]

“I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us. He lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers. His lyrics shone above others and threw a strange light on the American dream. Chuck, you were amazing, and your music is engraved inside us forever.”

[Mick Jagger i forbindelse med Chucks død]

Beatles – Chuck Berry – Roll over Beethoven

20. marts 2017

I Beatles’ diskografi finder vi først Chuck Berry pÃ¥ bandets andet album – With the Beatles eller The Beatles Second Album (hhv. den britiske og den amerikanske udgave) – hvor “Roll over Beethoven” indleder side 2 med George Harrison i front som sanger og guitarist. Sangen blev indspillet i juli 1963 og udsendt pÃ¥ single forskellige steder i 1963, 1964 og 1965. Min udgave pÃ¥ Odeon er fra 1965 – med “Please Mr. Postman” som B-side. Siden er nummeret dukket op i en live-udgave pÃ¥ Beatles Live at the BBC.
