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.

RIP to the legend

One of the best scenes from the classic. It's how I learned who he was

Spoiler:
“Joakim is somebody who has been on my list for a long time,’’ Jackson: “He was initially our first choice in the first-agent market.

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.
