Great New Article About Chuck Berry in Esquire

A GREAT article by Luke Dittrich.  Read it HERE.

I love this article.  Wish I'd written it.  The stuff about Ingrid is very touching-- that she bought his records when he was on the road and listened to them in her room.  That she cries when thinking what it's like to play on stage with him now.  As Dittrich sees while writing, the shows at BBH aren't about the money.  There's gobs of money at this point.  He's doing it-- they're doing it-- for some larger satisfaction.

I also love that he's still creating, still working.  I'd love to hear it all, but it doesn't matter.  What matters is that it's something he can't stop doing, and he's still doing it.
