This is a clip from 1958. Look at the audience. They don't even know what they're looking at. Undoubtedly, some are wishing someone would stop what that fella was doing to that poor guitar.

These people didn't know wtf hit them:



Chuck Fucking Berry, man.

Chuck Berry was fantastic! So much energy, so much fucking Rock and Roll. He sang, he duck-walked, it was great. The last song/encore (don't remember) was Johhny B. Goode, it went on forever. Kids came up onto the stage and played air guitar alongside him. They danced and duck-walked all over the stage. Chuck Berry just carefully backed up onto the drum riser, still playing, never missed a lick. It was a joyous party. Fucking Rock and Roll.

RIP Chuck Berry.

And he punched Keith Richards in the face for touching his guitar in the dressing room.
