We Still Care! ("He sent a genius!")

Here's a nicely edited clip from Doug showing one of the September performances at B.B. King's in New York City.  (I put up some shakey youtube stuff the day after the show).  The performance starts a little shakily, too, but turns out to be a very good one-- especially vocally.  Berry didn't use his St. Louis band for the gig (except for Jimmy Marsala on Bass.  According to the youtube notes John Colianni is on piano, and Andy Began is on drums.  As I recall, the show started with some friction when Berry thought Colianni was in the wrong key.  Turns out the guitar was tuned wrong.  And as you'll see, Chuck always acknowledges a musician when he meets one!
