Chuck by friends

We are going to dedicate some posts to share several songs covering some of the hits by the great artist that has left us this weekend.  Here is the first one. Recorded by David Bowie during the Ziggy Stardust sessions (1971). Enjoy!

Bye, bye Chuck

Yesterday Chuck Berry, rock and roll pioneer, and genius was dead; he was 90.  Some nice words that I have included from the NY Times: He made a surprising announcement on his 90th birthday, Oct. 18, 2016: He was planning to release his first studio album in almost 40 years.

Today in 1955 the great jazz saxophonist was found dead of a heart attack in NY City. During his atopsy his age (34) was mistakenly fixed between 50 and 60 years old, many years of drugs and alcohol abuse explain this mistake. A day later many improvised signs notified that ‘the bird’ was live. Enjoy!
