In my early teens back in the early 1950’s late at night I would tune into the blues radio station WLAC, “The Voice of the South”, out of Nashville Tenn. and listen to the John R. show. That’s were I first hear Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline” and I was hooked. Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll, the TRUE American music. Chuck Berry’s music will never die. . . your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

NEW YORK (AP) — Chuck Berry, rock ‘n’ roll’s founding guitar hero and storyteller who defined the music’s joy and rebellion in such classics as “Johnny B. Goode,” ”Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” died Saturday at his home west of St. Louis. He was 90.

Emergency responders summoned to Berry’s residence by his caretaker about 12:40 p.m. found him unresponsive, police in Missouri’s St. Charles County said in a statement. Attempts to revive Berry failed, and he was pronounced dead shortly before 1:30 p.m., police said.

Berry’s core repertoire was some three dozen songs, his influence incalculable, from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to virtually any group from garage band to arena act that called itself rock ‘n roll. . . . Read complete Report/w video

Legendary blues musician B.B. King died on Thursday in Las Vegas, his attorney told The Associated Press. Cause of death was not released. He was 89.

Born Riley B. King in Berclair, Mississippi, and raised by his grandmother, the future “King of the Blues” purchased his first guitar for $15 when he was just 12 years old. He dropped out of school in the 10th grade, and spent much of his early years picking cotton and working as a tractor driver.

While he began singing in a gospel choir at church, the blues took root in King during his teen years. The blues is considered by many to be the only truly indigenous American music, and over time, King would become its foremost ambassador. . . . Read Complete Report

During the Apollo 11 moon landing, there was a two minute period of radio silence. Astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin saw something else watching them! According to Timothy Good, author of Above Top Secret. . . .Read Complete Report & much,much more.
