Fun Fact

The title character in Chuck Berry's classic "Johnny B. Goode" was based on the songwriter himself, according to Berry. "The original words were ... 'that little colored boy could play." But I changed it to 'country boy' or else it wouldn't get on the radio."
Chuck Berry





Great Quote

According to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, the music to their classic "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" came to him in a dream one night in his motel room during the Stones' third U.S. tour. Richards says he woke up, grabbed a guitar and taped the music in his dream on a handy cassette recorder. Then he fell back to sleep. When he woke, Richards says he checked the tape."You can hear me drop the pick, and the rest of the tape is me snoring," Richards told reporters.
