Chuck Berry was rock's greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock 'n' roll writer who ever lived.

Sad that the only time real music comes up here, is when someone dies. Barry was a guitar legend.

This is garbage. Respect all forms of art.

I could say metal isn't real music since that stuff sounds like noise to me. It would be false as all heck.

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not music.

It just means you're not here for it.
