Happy New Year to everyone! As we begin 2011 and step forward into the future, it’s only proper we pay some respect to the past. That’s why on this New Years Day we are going to honor the father of rock n roll, Chuck Berry, and name his classic recording of “Memphis Tennessee.” For rock purists, it doesn’t get much better than this. Plus this song/video is from a wonderfully intimate performance recorded in the early 70’s in London. You can hear why this guy became an influence on just about everyone after him that play any kind of rock n roll.
This is just beautiful music – enjoy it and enjoy 2011!
