Chuck was, is and will always remain my MAIN MAN. Probably spurred more guys to pick up a guitar and want to learn to play than anyone ELSE in the last half of the 20th century. I've LONG considrered him the TRUE "King" of rock'n'roll.
almost ALL of our "guitar heroes" claimed him to be their main influence. Certainly MINE. Was a time if you bragged you could play "Johnny B. Goode" and PROVE it, you were IN!
Rest in peace Chuck. I'll be playing all the discs in my box set the rest of the weekend. On 11!
