RIP Chuck Berry - Wildman, showman, one of the greatest songwriters of all time.  You can't overstate his influence on the culture of music.  Here is an incredible picture that I had never seen before the announcement of his death.  Chuck plays an early 50's Kay Thin Twin.  No doubt that this guitar had yet to earn the "Jimmy Reed" nickname.  Would love to hear him work that Johnny B. Goode riff on this Kay.
