Chuck Berry ~ Voted #5 Ultimate Guitar Top 10 Greatest Rock Guitarists in 2012 ~ Berry's career could have gone in a very different direction after his arrest for armed robbery in 1944. Instead, he set his life straight and became one of the founders of rock n' roll as we know it. Alright, he didn't quite set life straight he was sent back to prison several times for offences including tax evasion - but he was one of the first inductees to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on its opening in 1986, and continues to perform today at the grand age of 85. ~ 2012 © Ultimate Guitar
