    Joni Sledge was so young! 60! How sad.

    Chuck Berry too! He was gonna "Twist Yet Again" before this happened.

    The word "legend" gets thrown around a lot, but it's well deserved there. One of the original greats who put rock music on the map.

    I knew this day was coming, but it still hurts. Time to listen to my Chess box set of his music for the umpteenth time...

    RIP

    As fans of the Beatles, disliking Chuck Berry would be nonsensical.

    The Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Stones, the Animals, the Yardbirds/Led Zeppelin, AC/DC...they were the Disciples of Chuck, one and all.

    The word "legend" gets used a lot. But there really is no other way to describe Chuck Berry.

    Absolutely, BA. He was immensely influential in the British Isles, the US... everywhere!

    Who's left from the first generation? Little Richard, the Killer, Fats, Lloyd Price... from the greats, I think that's it.

    Not many. I can't think of any either.

    Never saw him in concert but I did see him in Chicago. One day I was walking down Wabash towards the Kroch & Brentano's bookstore which I always liked to visit after getting off the South Shore Train. A limo pulled up in front of the store just as I got there and a well dressed gentleman came out. I thought he looked familiar and then I went inside there was a book signing table set up for Chuck Berry. I wish I had bought a copy. I knew some of his work but wasn't really knowledgeable. Years later I saw the documentary Hail,Hail Rock and Roll and wish I had bought that book.

    Came home from work and got hit with a double whammy, first learned Chuck Berry had passed and then as I was catching up on news I saw that Bernie Wrightson's wife posted on faceboook that Bernie had succumbed to brain cancer.

    RIP Chuck Berry

    RIP Bernie Wrightson

    legends both who filled my life with awe and wonder. You will be missed.

    So sad about Bernie.
    Think he deserves his own thread, this being a comic book community and all.
