Log Rolling In Our Time (An Occasional Series)

From an undisclosed location deep in the heart of Jersey, please enjoy "Move!".

Or as I like to call it -- The Autobiography of Mr. Charles Edward Anderson Berry of St. Louis, Missouri.

Written, and sung, by my old bandmate and chum Tony Forte. Circa the late 80s.

That is he on the lead guitar as well, BTW.

A really terrific song, I think -- lyrically, it gets Chuck's voice to absolute perfection. The Great Man could well have written it himself.

I should add that while I usually refer to Tony as Mr. Rickenbacker 12-String, he really plays the old Gibson here just like a ringin' a bell

Hey Tony -- I love the outfit in the picture, BTW. You look very Mod.

Kind of like an Italian version of one of the original Small Faces.

Thanks for posting that! It was actually mixed for TV -Uncle Floyd, when we did the tribute to Chuck Berry, around "CB DAY" in NYC. That's that very guitar, which is candy apple red under the quickie paint job (intact). John Faison, Artie Scarano, Alfred Marcelli, rhythm section. I wish i was close to that weight again! like 137..oy, don't ask! ok, 193. still wearing those desert boots! thanks again! tony
