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.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
