    Cool Re: R.I.P. Chuck Berry

    Chuck Berry's "No Particular Place To Go" is my favorite: teenager troubles with a faulty seatbelt makes a great story.

    My first exposure to him was when we lived in Norfolk Virginia, where "that music" wasn't to be played on the white radio stations. I'd sneak a listen to it when the peeps went out for whatever reason and I got to hear some really exciting music - to my white ears.

    To this day I get a certain thrill when I hear his music - as if I'm doing something naughty, and again it brings back the certain punishment if I ever got caught listening to it.

    Even with both my peeps dead and I'm the sole patriarch (for the moment) - I still fear that maternal back of the hand if I get caught somehow.

    On another front: My knee is healing well since surgery on Feb 21st, and in a few days it'll be a month old. That's 1/3rd of the way to being able to do a lot of the things that are at the moment, restricted to me.

    I guess if my doc and the physical therapist saw me on the roof re-aiming our TV antenna and then cleaning out the wood stove chimney - they'd go ballistic on me.

    Why - just today I drove my tractor around to my wood pile and loaded up a 6' x 8' trailer with more firewood for heat. That would get me more than a sideways glance fer-sure!

    So-o-o - trying to be somewhat conservative since about 9PM last night - and NOT do anything risky - I tripped over one of my crutches and fell headlong into my bedroom door and falling upon one of my guitar hardcases, spraining the lower calf muscle in - yup - the same leg that just had surgery.

    Now since I'm not winning if I do or don't do hazardous things - it's all a crapshoot - right?

    Well - my therapist said that the knee itself is NOT damage-able - just muscles and tendons around it might be damaged. We'll see at tomorrows PT session.

    I limp a lot today - and I better not do that tomorrow!

    When I was a kid, I used to think people could see me through the TV.

    I'm beginning to think that again.

    Yes John Lennon said that Chuck Berry wrote all the good guitar riffs and all the good intros.
    And it they were looking for another name for Rock n Roll and could have been Chuck Berry.

    His songs were great and he was great on stage.

    Stage presence is something that not many people have. It's unmistakable when you see it though. Chuck had it in spades.

    On my other front: My knee is well ahead of the curve for recuperation. I'm getting 128º on flex and 4º on extension; I'll make 0º extension in a few more treatments - and this is the most painful part of therapy.

    I cry and scream like a little girl, it hurts so bad!

    My therapist said to not expect too much since my knee thinks it was hit by a train.

    Take care...remind me of of Evil Knievel's fractured bones, though think he had expensive fusion surgery and plates bolted in his legs/hips.

    Watching the 1987 Chuck Berry/Keith Richards Concert on NZ Sky TV...some songs he sang, did not realize (or forgot) he wrote them. Many rock artists sang his songs...Stones, Elvis, Beatles. "Too much Monkey Business", "Little Queenie", and the short "Memphis, Tennessee" (What's the "ridge near the Mississippi bridge" that is referred to SJ?).

    Also - Wonder if he was denied Hollywood presence to act in Movies in the 60's, unlike Elvis, and Avalon...seemed he got little front end exposure...

    Like Joe this is my favourite from Chuck Berry:

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
