Song of the Week: Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven (Live)

Chuck Berry (1926 – 2017)

There couldn’t be any other choice today. Chuck Berry was one of the original rock n’ rollers and an essential innovator in the story of rock. A phenomenally talented writer, performer and guitarist.

But which song to pick? I was thinking Reelin’ and Rockin’ or Guitar Boogie from the One Dozen Berrys album but then I remembered this amazing footage from the Heppest of the Hep Facebook page and decided to go with this. It’s an awesome performance of one of his most legendary tunes: Chuck lets rip with plenty of guitar licks and works through all his iconic stage moves too. The audience are justifiably appreciative at the end. And we should be too… a big round of applause, please, for Chuck Berry.
