Issue: April 2017 - CHUCK BERRY
He gave the music its sound and its attitude, even as he battled racism – and his own misdeeds – all the way
One night in 1955, Chuck Berry played a show in Mobile, Alabama. His revved-up and revolutionary first hit, "Maybellene" – a joyful story that romped through cars, sex and class – had recently taken Berry from a St. Louis nightclub act to a national star unlike any other. He was tall, limber, smart, sly, incredibly inventive, and animated onstage in ways that helped flex his musicianship rather than detract from it. Plus, he was handsome and black. These were the early days of rock & roll. What the music seemed to stand for – a youthful refusal to defer to adult authority, a preference for turbulent sounds made from outsider forms like blues, boogie and hillbilly, and a willingness among young whites and blacks to listen to and adopt one another's music, to gather and dance to it – signaled social change that both anticipated and corresponded to the emerging civil-rights struggle.
