    If this has been mentioned on here, I didn't see it. I saw Chuck Berry one time in person, back in the 1950s. He was a bit wild but was quite the entertainer throughout his life. He had some fun songs back in my teen years.

    I was surprised to hear of his passing late last night. But honestly, I was surprised because I thought he had died years ago.

    He was one in a million, that's for sure.

    I never knew he sang that song until recently. For some reason, always thought it was performed by Jim Stafford who did the song "Spiders and Snakes".

    I got on a Chuck Berry spell a while back (maybe it was his birthday or I was just reminiscing), so watched a bunch of videos on YouTube. I like getting stuck in the past at times, lol.

    I listen to classic rock and metal all the time. It is better than much of the new stuff to me.

    This was my favorite. He was interacting with the crowd and the kids loved it! I was a kid then, too, lol.

    I looked all over and couldn't find one, so I don't think he did. I was so far off base, there wasn't even a game being played!
