Charles Edward Berry 1926-2017

And this message was just received from a distant star, as reported in today's edition of TIME:

Chuck had a good long run.

Well, early in the mornin' I'm a givin' you a warnin'
don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle, I am playin' my fiddle,
ain't got nothin' to lose
Roll Over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news

1964, I'm 13 years old at our summer house in Maine.
My next door neighbor has a 16 year old son who drives a 1949 ford hot rod.
We are hanging out,, car radio on --

" Riding along in my calaboose
Still trying to get her belt unloose
All the way home I held a grudge
But the safety belt, it would not budge"

Hail Hail Rock and Roll
RIP to an American Legend.
