A Blog Post about Chuck Berry, Michael J. Fox, and How we Get There.
The blog is called Folk Thief. He almost apologizes for getting to Chuck Berry through Michael J. Fox-- but think how many millions got there through The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. I only learned that "Rock 'n' Roll Music" and "Roll Over Beethoven" were Chuck Berry songs on the way home from my first Chuck Berry concert. And of course, it keeps going-- because there's another million of us who only learned about Muddy Waters, Elmore James, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian and a hundred others through Chuck Berry. Why, just the other day, I first heard the music of Floyd Smith-- and I thought THAT was a Chuck Berry song!
