He was mental but his legacy will yake some surpassing. |
I was about 15 when my grandad have me a compilation of his stuff and I was blown away! I was well into the metal and stuff but when I heard Chick Berry, I heard someone giving a massive '#### Off' to the squares. He'd have theatres of people singing along to songs about his cock. His music is dripping with libido and doubke-entendres and whilst that's not unique in early 20th-Century black music, he took that music to the people en-masse.
If his records weren't coming off the docks in Liverpool then there's a certain group I local lads who would have taken a different path and music as we know it today simply wouldn't exist.
