A true original, CHUCK BERRY was one of rock and roll's innovators and truly among the first of the singer/songwriters. Chuck was born this day in 1926, and left us earlier this year. He appeared in many of the classic black-and-white Alan Freed films of the 1950s. From the film Rock, Rock, Rock here's Chuck in his heyday performing "You Can't Catch Me." Dig those crazy "duckwalk" moves of his.
