Loved this band. Everything has it's place and the music they created certainly became part of my collection. Trippy, spaced out vibe that lasted a very long time...

Oh Hell yes! He paid excellent tribute to all the Rolling Stones numbers he covered but Stray Cat Blues on the Saints and Sinners LP is truly incredible.

I never did hear whether he made it to any of Ronnie’s London gigs... he mentioned that he was interested. (Brown-Eyed Handsome Man airing on PBS Buffalo / Toronto on Sunday March 1 @ 10:30.) No as usual I found out Ronnie's show too late! What sucks even more is I'

A row between to very wealthy and famous men? Unless it leads to gun play its of no consequence and drug fueled feuds don't count (even if one of them have sobered up). Now if one pops the other one in the eye and they go on to make one of the best documentaries of the 20th century all is forgiven and forgot by default. We still have the Christmas Cards to prove it.

QuoteRocky Dijon QuoteCBII Still drives us crazy Marks has the publishing to this number. The name "Rudolph" is all it took! CBII, Marvin Brodie was the name of an A&R guy at United Artists and later Cameo-Parkway in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Did he actually have anything to do with writing the song? Just curious because the original 45 lists your Dad and M. Brodie as song

Some of the years did not seem correct but a very cool collection regardless. Some of them were at the MET in New York and are now on exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

QuoteCaptainCorella Quotejlowe Will be interesting to see how the movie deals with Berry's many brushes with the law. And his obsession with money (apparantly his Estate was valued at 50 million). It was indeed the 2018 'official' movie of Chuck's life - much participation from the family. His brushes with the Law (perhaps more accurately with Jim Crow) were dealt with (

From this day forward I will never be able to watch it without thinking of his "thoughts" about the look on my dad's face.

I think that is correct. The 3 x 10 Band Masters are truly secret weapons! Worth every penny if you kind find a good one. So are the original Magnatone 260's from 1960. Incredible Amps!

Quotetatters And Jethro Tull (eligible since 1993) has still never even been nominated. For the life of me I do not understand why this band has not been nominated and inducted. Martin Barre's guitar playing by itself should have gotten them in. Countless numbers of genius level songs in their catalog of work. Oh well, I just listen to what I like that doesn't mean anyone has to

Sound systems for live shows were in general awful back in the 60's and most of the 70's due to the limitations of the equipment. Pretty much anytime we were in the first few rows of a show the majority of sound was coming directly from the stage with the exception of the vocals. Best sound for ampliphied live shows have always been the small clubs.

Lyrics as such don't neccesarily result into great (musical) songs. So Johnson/Berry (or Berry/Johnson) credits would have been nice (and decent) in cases. It's a difficult one, Georg

However, the recording artist and credited songwriter on all those records was Chuck Berry, there were no royalties to receive just because you play on someone's sessions or gigs.
