1970–1979: Back to Chess: “My Ding-a-Ling” to White House concert
Berry helped give life to a subculture … Even “My Ding-a-Ling”, a fourth-grade wee-wee joke that used to mortify true believers at college concerts, permitted a lot of twelve-year-olds new insight into the moribund concept of “dirty” when it hit the airwaves …
Robert Christgau
Berry returned to Chess from 1970 to 1973. There were no hit singles from the 1970 album Back Home, but in 1972 Chess released a live recording of “My Ding-a-Ling”, a novelty song which he had recorded in a different version as “My Tambourine” on his 1968 LP From St. Louie to Frisco. The track became his only number-one single...

Frank Sinatra Out/Chuck Berry In

Frank Sinatra Out/Chuck Berry In

I hope you enjoying my website, and come back often, although that’s not why you are reading my blog right now. You might wonder what the title means, well that’s something I’ll (naturally), will tell you. If you been reading, or just listening to my blogs, you probably have notice, that I have a lot of Frank Sinatra on it, and even though my website isn’t called Frank Sinatra, I have thirteen blogs about him with fourteen albums (the thirteenth has an added album on it, making it two on that blog), even with fourteen albums, Frank Sinatra isn’t my favorite singer (wait until I get into the 1940’s with my favorite band’s birth, then you will find who I really like), that will come soon...

Chuck Berry Born: October 18,1926-Died: March 18,2017 Part Three

It’s a shame that I didn’t start on doing Chuck Berry birth year, so I would have more albums of him already on my website. Oh well, I’ll just have to finish this blog and upload another album.

In 1936, which I’ll be texting you about, until I’m finished with that year, Chuck Berry was ten years old. However I’ll do his full life story in 1953, that’s when he started his career in music, that’s when he’s 27 years old.

It’s hard to make a blog about someone and text about nothing. I’m trying to make three hundred words for each blog (that’s what my website’s server reads to me. I guess all websites have to do that...

Chuck Berry Born: October 18,1926-Died: March 18,2017 Part One

Chuck Berry, is my Mr. Rock’N’Roll, for he truly got me started in the right path of great music. He also help me with my confidence, for I have a learning disability and my teachers and classmates all told me that I was retarded. Not dumb, nor stupid did my teachers from  kindergarten through my preteen years, which I was starting to believe. Then one day by chance, My Mom turned on the radio with people who are white (1), which I found out later they were singing cover versions of people who are black (2).

When I like something or someone I tend to want to know everything about it or him (3), so when I first heard “Sha Boom Sha Boom” by The Crew Cuts, I thought it was My Parents music and not mine, but I always song it anywa...

Life And Times Of Benny Goodman Part One

Let me tell you about Benny Goodman, he was before my time, but his music is great with or without being able to see him preform on stage. Benny Goodman was an American jazz musician that he wrote his songs, well maybe he did. Anyone can play a Benny Goodman and sing someone’s songs, but it takes skill to make it as though you wrote it yourself. In this blog, which is named Life And Times Of Benny Goodman Part One, I’ll be texting about The King Of Swing and how he changed the idea of what music should be.
