Chuck Berry in The New Yorker

There's a great little write up about Chuck in this week's New Yorker.  "[I]f Elvis was Apollo (beardless, beautiful) and Jerry Lee Lewis was Mars (virile, sometimes savage), Berry is Mercury: Silver-tongued, fleet, and the inventor of the lyre..."   The New Yorker, which has run a couple of nice Chuck Berry pieces over the years, is publicizing Chuck's upcoming New Years Eve shows at B. B. King's in New York City's Times Square.  Wish I were going-- but hey: I'm going to St. Louis!
