I just read this. Rest in peace to the poet prince, and to the dude who punched Keith in the face for touching his guitar.

Tru legend.

No matter what one thinks of his personal failings, Chuck Berry very literally changed the sound of popular music - and the electric guitar in particular - in a way that only 2 others (EVH and the immortal Jimi) even approached.

Every electric guitar player alive today owes the man a debt, even if they don't know it.
