Bruce Springsteen teaches the E Street Band a Chuck Berry cover...live onstage in the middle of a show:
This is Rolling Stone's magazine's list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. 1. The Beatles - Makes sense. Some of the most influential albums of all time are the works of these lads. What else can you say? 2. Bob Dylan - I could argue with this one. He's a legend, but number 2? 3. Elvis Presley - Very successful, the king of rock n roll of course, but he was very controlled by his manager. 4. Rolling Stones - Often called 'Anti-Beatles', definitely top 5 5. Chuck Berry - Probably invented Rock n Roll. Deserves to be here. 6. Jimi Hendrix - First guitar god, I believe. Revolutionary player 7. James Brown - Godfather of soul, is it? Great showman 8. Little Richard - American Rock & Roll/R & B singer and pianist 9. Aretha Franklin - I think she was the first woman to be inducted into the rock n Roll Hall of fame. I'll look that up later. 10. Ray Charles - American R&B singer and pianist 11. Bob Marley - Jamaican reggae singer 12. The Beach Boys - Some of the catchiest songs I ever heard. 13. Buddy Holly ...

Eric Burdon has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in rock and roll. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1994, and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Burdon’s music forged new territory while also topping the charts for more than five decades. He has shared the stage with legends such as Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Witherspoon, Otis Redding and Bruce Springsteen, and was recently cited by cutting edge musicians like Patti Smith and Iggy Pop in their personal top tens. Highly prolific, Burdon has released nearly 50 records in those 50 years, as front man of The Animals, and WAR, and simply as Eric Burdon. Through the changing sounds and genres, what remains constant is his courage as an artist to explore new sounds, leading into new territory with his unrivalled and unique voice. As front man and driving force of the British Invasion band The Animals, Burdon helped shape rock and roll’s DNA, and his imposing yet soulful vocals are the d ...

Today in music history...1987, Keith Richards inducted Aretha Franklin at the 2nd annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Awards, held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Keith later took part in a jam with Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Roy Orbison, Sting, and Daryl Hall.

Continuing my posts of some of my all-time favorite Christmas/holiday songs, here's an oldie from the 1940s and one of the first blues holiday recordings to make it big. "Merry Christmas, Baby" was a single released by Johnny Moore's Three Blazers back in 1947. Featuring blues singer and pianist Charles Brown, the original version is the definitive version of this song (notable cover versions include those by Chuck Berry on his 1964 album "St. Louis to Liverpool" and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, which was recorded live at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, and included on the Christmas album A Very Special Christmas, released in 1987). Johnny Moore's Three Blazers was one of the hottest blues attractions on the West Coast when their recording of "Merry Christmas, Baby" reached position No. 3 on Billboard's R&B Juke Box Records chart in late December 1947 (this original version of the song hit the R&B charts again December 1948 and December 1949, and then made Billboard's Christmas Singles . ...
Was listening to the "My top rated" playlist on random. An interesting juxtaposition: Bruce Springsteen's Thunder Road to Herbert von Karajan's interpretation of Beethoven's 9th symphony, Chuck Berry's You Never Can Tell and the greatest modern song ever recorded, John Lennon's For No-one (there's no point in arguing, saying there's a better one, you're wrong :-). That song expresses feelings most of us will have felt at least once in our lives, usually when we were younger. But the way Lennon said it was pure genius ... And in her eyes you see nothing, no sign of love... When my kids were teenagers we used to play it over and over again in the car as they came to realise that there was music that could touch your soul better than the modern stuff their friends played. Much to the chagrin of Peta who doesn't really like the Beatles. And the middle 8 is Dennis Clift playing a Bach trumpet! What on earth gave Lennon that idea? Or maybe it was George Martin. Who really cares? It's truly superb. Some people ...
"Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll is a 1987 documentary film directed by Taylor Hackford that chronicles two 1986 concerts celebrating rock and roll musician Chuck Berry's 60th birthday. A soundtrack album was released in October 1987 on the MCA label. The two concerts were held on October 16, 1986, at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis; among the artists performing with Berry were Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Etta James, Johnnie Johnson, Steve Jordan, Bobby Keys, Julian Lennon, Keith Richards, Linda Ronstadt and Joey Spampinato. Along with concert footage, the film also features scenes from the rehearsals for the shows, interviews with Berry and members of his family, and "talking-head"-type appearances from a number of musicians, including Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, John Lennon (archival footage), Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Little Richard and Bruce Springsteen."

Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band with Chuck Berry playing Johnny B Goode in 1995. I think it's very good, rare and funny as well !!! Hope they make it again ! GO CHUCK ! GO BRUCE !!!
Bruce Springsteen and Chuck Berry don't sound particularly 'perfect' until you've cleaned the whole house, opened the windows, watered the plants, and eased your mind. Or at least I've just come to this conclusion. I need to start cutting some Loose Ends. Tired of catching myself out of my element.
"Born On The Bayou" CCR, "Born in the USA" Bruce Springsteen, "Back in the USA" Chuck Berry, "Saturday in the Park" Chicago, "Were an American Band" Grand Funk Rail Road, any other good ones?
In the 1930s jazz, and particularly swing, both in urban based dance bands and blues-influenced country swing, was among the first music to present African American sounds for a predominantly white audience. The 1940s saw the increased use of blaring horns (including saxophones), shouted lyrics and boogie woogie beats in jazz based music. During and immediately after World War II, with shortages of fuel and limitations on audiences and available personnel, large jazz bands were less economical and tended to be replaced by smaller combos, using guitars, bass and drums. In the same period, particularly on the West Coast and in the Midwest, the development of jump blues, with its guitar riffs, prominent beats and shouted lyrics, prefigured many later developments. In the documentary film Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, Bruce Springsteen demonstrates a compelling explanation of how Chuck Berry developed his brand of rock and roll, by transposing the familiar two-note lead line of jump blues pia ...
What If Joseph Stalin had Spotify? Well here is his top five. 1. Soviet Union National Anthem (This speaks for itself) 2. Der Kommisar-Falco/After The Fire (I feel he would enjoy this for the opposite reason all of us do. Cause when he comes to town, you do not turn around.) 3. My Way-Frank Sinatra (Russian Dictator or No Russian Dictator, everyone loves the chairman) 4. Born In The U.S.A.- Bruce Springsteen (Clearly he would appreciate the not so subtle jabs at the follies of Vietnam. Of course anything anti-american that dumb people see as patriotic would tickle his fancy) 5. Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry (Again odd choice, however, I feel that it would bring Stalin great joy that any such russian with amazing musical talent would be forced to ignore his dreams and mine coal all day. Nothing turns on a dictator quite like the scent of oppression and broken dreams.)
