CHUCK BERRY: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Chuck Berry was undoubtedly one of the architects of Rock n Roll and both The Beatles and Rolling Stones worshipped and imitated him. He was also the Bad Boy of rock – the height of Berry’s career was interrupted when he served two years in prison for traveling across state lines with a 14 year old girl. (These southern rockers were obsessed with underage girls!) And don’t forget that awful incident where he was caught filming women in the bathroom of his St Louis restaurant! (The case was settled.) Despite all, you cannot deny his greatness. He died today at the age of 90, and left behind four children and his wife Themetta, whom he married in 1948! Sweet Little >Sixteen was our favorite of his songs.

THE ROLLING STONES DID A TV COMMERCIAL IN 1964

Talk about selling out! Even the Rolling Stones couldn’t resist getting paid to do a TV commercial for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies back in 1964. Brian Jones wrote the jingle and it’s so funny to hear those familiar voices singing about cereal.They were heavily influenced by Chuck Berry in those days. The ad ran in the UK but never made it to America.

We just came across this vintage photo taken at a Grammy party in 1977 by Buzzfoto. Michael Jackson looks young and innocent as he greets rock legend Chuck Berry. By the way, Mos Def is hilarious as the womanizing Berry in Cadillac Records.

Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
