The Blues Collection - Chuck Berry
Probably more synonymous with Rock'n'Roll Charles Edward Anderson Berry merits his place in the Blues Collection as one of the conduits linking rhythm and blues to rock'n'roll and from there to much subsequent music.
Blues Berry contains 18 classic songs which you will all be familiar with and thankfully no my Ding -a -Ling in sight.
That sadly will be one of his legacies alongside his predilection for young teenage girls which led him to spend three years in prison for transporting a 14 year old girl over state lines.
So a despicable human being but one who who played a significant part in the rock'n'roll revolution and who could play a mean guitar.
