Chuck Berry ~ Inducted in the 1986 Songwriters Hall Of Fame ~ Chuck Berry, the astonishingly gifted singer-guitarist-composer, has almost single-handedly fashioned rock-and-roll through his highly individualized and pace-setting songs. With their strongly surging rhythms, infectious melodies and appealing lyrics, his songs were as widely imitated then as they still are today. ~ 1986 © Songwriters Hall Of Fame
