Charles Edward "Chuck" Berry (born October 18, 1926 in St. Louis, Missouri) is an American
guitarist, singer, and songwriter.
Chuck Berry is one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. According to the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame's website, "While no individual can be said to have invented rock and roll, Chuck Berry
comes the closest of any single figure to being the one who put all the essential pieces
together." Cub Koda wrote, "Of all the early breakthrough rock & roll artists, none is more
important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. He is its greatest songwriter, the
main shaper of its instrumental voice, one of its greatest guitarists, possessing the clearest
diction, and one of its greatest performers." John Lennon said: "If you tried to give rock and
roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'."
Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its
opening in 1986. He received Kennedy Center Honors in 2000 in a "class" with Mikhail
Baryshnikov, Pl?cido Domingo, Angela Lansbury, and Clint Eastwood. In 2004, Rolling Stone
ranked Chuck Berry #5 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, being the 3rd
individual singer behind Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley. He was also ranked 6th on Rolling
Stone's 100 greatest guitarists of All Time.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included three of Chuck Berry's songs ("Johnny B. Goode",
"Maybellene", "Rock and Roll Music"), of the 500 songs that shaped Rock and Roll.
A pioneer of rock and roll, Chuck Berry was a significant influence on the development of early
rock and roll guitar techniques. His guitar style is legendary and many later guitar musicians
acknowledge him as a major influence in their own style. Richard Berry (no relation) drew on
Chuck Berry's "Havana Moon" as an inspiration for his own song, the now classic "Louie Louie".
John Lennon borrowed a line from Berry's "You Can't Catch Me" for his song "Come Together", and was subsequently sued by Berry's music publisher Morris Levy. Nevertheless, they became good friends and played together on more than one occasion, famously on the Mike Douglas Show.
Jerry Garcia, of The Grateful Dead, cited Chuck Berry as a major influence. The Grateful Dead
have recorded "Johnny B. Goode", "Around and Around" and "Promised Land". Jerry Garcia
performed "Let It Rock" on his Compliments in 1974.
Another guitarist who has cited Berry as a major influence is Joe Perry of Aerosmith, who
claims that one of Berry's albums was the first record he ever bought.
While there is debate about who recorded the first rock and roll record, Chuck Berry's early
recordings, including his cover of the 1938 country hit "Ida Red", entitled "Maybellene"
(1955), are among the first fully synthesized rockabilly singles, combining blues and country
music with lyrics about girls and cars.
Most of his famous recordings were on Chess Records with pianist Johnnie Johnson from Berry's
own band and legendary record producer Willie Dixon on bass, Fred Below on drums, and Berry's
guitar. It should be noted, however, that Lafayette Leake, not Johnnie Johnson, played the
piano on "Johnny B. Goode", "Reelin' and Rockin'", "Sweet Little Sixteen", and "Rock and Roll
Music". Additionally, Otis Spann played the piano on "You Can't Catch Me" and "No Money Down".
