Indeed Nicko, may he Rest in Peace



Dead at 90.
I never saw him perform live, but what would rock and roll have been without him and Little Richard? Could the Beatles and the Stones have even existed? Ninety percent of what came after Berry and Richard has been forgettable dross in comparison.
Not just great musicianship and great songs, but some of the smartest lyrics ever.


One of my many favorites:

Chuck 3852033631

90 years old  !!!

At least it can be said that he had a good run..


It has often been claimed that if he had been white in 1950s and '60s America, he would have been "bigger than Elvis !" at the time.

If there is an Elysian fields or a heaven for departed musicians, there will be some grand old jam sessions going down, with the number of great muso's who have recently passed on..

Tommy seems to be getting the Major treatment.
Making his every post racial.....even though he has said absolutely nothing wrong. Rolling Eyes indeed.

Over time he is bigger then Elvis
More musicians where inspired by him or inspired by the bands he inspired..

And 90!!! awesome for a hard partying rocker
I wonder if he gave Keith Richards the secret to longevity as well as inspired his guitar and musical style Suspect Suspect Suspect

Are you kidding?  Keith is only 26-years old.  Those wrinkles are actually some hard miles.

RIP Maybelline.

He took a 14 year old over the border to have sex with...something like that, though I cant imagine any state being legal to have sex with 14 year olds....maybe an American knows more.
His private life was certainly shady....his music was fabulous though.

I LOVE this one.
