    Was lucky enough to catch his show twice, a long time ago. Got his autobiography somewhere, published for his 70th birthday. Some amazing stuff in that.
    We'll never see his like again.

    How could you listen to him and not get going? I think that is the true meaning of rock and roll.

    RIP

    Saw a show in the early '70's. He was playing with a local backup band as he often did. The local guitarist was a bit too enthusiastic and kept stepping (musically speaking) on Chuck, who proceeded to run him off the stage in the middle of a song.

    Doubt there was a garage band from my generation who didn't cut their teeth on "Johnny B. Goode"
