Chuck Berry...well tigerman has most of his influences but
one of the BIG one's on Chuck was Louis Jordan...
esp in the comedy lyric style that came thru on many of Chucks songs
Jordan was always backed by big bands of great musicians
who played in a jazz/blues style but Jordan was pure entertainer
and the delivery of the songs were always in a slightly hokum kinda way..
Even the title of Jordan's songs give it away....
