I've tried to stay away from the obvious legends. But I must say, Kieth Richards really is great. He was the engine behind the Rolling Stones and they crafted a sound that hadn't existed yet. That's just nasty.
No mention of Townsend; just now we finally get to Chuck Berry. Why do I have to keep an eye on you guys?
Please see my first posting which includes Pete's inclusion.
I mentioned Chuck in another thread and was met with a "shaking cane" reference. Did not want to repeat the experience and foster more boredom. I think anyone who has read my posts over the years knows that I consider Berry the gold standard of rock songwriters and performers. Every rock riff is derivative of his early work.
