The Continuing Story of the Big Night in Cleveland(to be continued)

(THE REVIEWS ARE IN!  Thanks to Johan for finding THIS ONE so quickly!  Here's a more complete one from a St. Louis paper.  A million great picutures HERE.)

An interview in Rolling Stone.

And a video of Reelin' and Rockin'.

Okay, a couple of these are stolen, but worth stealing-- Bob Lohr's snapshots from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland where Chuck Berry was being honored yesterday.

A tour of the hall.  That's Marshall Chess making some point to Chuck.  Themetta Berry is looking on.

Here is Lemmy, of Motorhead "kickin' serious ass on 'Let it Rock,'" according to Lohr.

Bob couldn't have taken this one.  He's there at the keys when Chuck Berry takes the stage.

Another from the Hall of Fame's page...

Here, by the way, is a great interview of Lemmy by the Hall about Chuck Berry.  Says Lemmy: "People don't want to see the guy next door on the stage, they want to see a being from another planet. You want to see somebody you'd never meet in ordinary life, for a start. You want to see a being from somewhere else, who comes to your planet, fucks you up and goes away again. That's the idea with rock and roll. It should be amazing from start to finish and not ordinary. "

Here's Lohr with Lemmy.  (Bob once gave Lemmy a Chuck Berry box set, signed by the Master himself.)
