Yesterday would have been my father's 100th birthday. I lost him 6 years ago. While he was not a musician, he was an artist, so I figured it was okay to honor him here. Rest in peace, Daddy. I miss you.
Oh, and I must add, my father LOVED rock and roll. The Doors were his favorite!

Sorry to hear about your dad, riffraff.  He sounds so cool being into the Doors when most people of his generation would've been frowning and getting high blood pressure at the thought of Jim Morrison and the Doors.  You were very lucky to have such a great dad.  I am sure you miss him very much.

Thank you, my friend...I DO miss him. He was a really funny guy, and a pretty decent artist - mostly oil paintings, but also charcoal and pencil drawings. He loved the Doors...he knew almost all the words to their popular songs. It was so much fun to ride around with him in the car. We weren't allowed to listen to rock if my mom was with us, but when she wasn't around, we rocked!

RIP Chuck...

He made it to 90 years of age...amazing. I always considered him the real king of rock & roll.

RIP Chuck

First song i ever recall hearing in my life....over and over, as i played it a lot (my mum had the 7" single), was My Ding A Ling by Chuck. I was likely aged about 3-4 yrs old at the time.
In my house, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and the likes were played a lot...so i heard that music often.
Chuck truly was a legend.....and i mean proper legend...not like in the diluted 2017 way

I believe U2 opened for J Geils Band in the early 80s

Most anyone, especially from the Northeast US is sad today.  Blow Your Face Out John, RIP.
