Legends of Rock & Roll: Chuck Berry James Hoag Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Chuck Berry is known as “the Father of Rock and Roll”. Without Chuck Berry, rock and roll would have been very different. He is its greatest songwriter, one of its greatest guitar players and one of its greatest performers. He influenced The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan and a host of others. Start any Chuck Berry song and before it has gone more than a couple seconds, you recognize that guitar. Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys said “he wrote all of the great songs and came up with all the rock & roll beats.”

In this short book, I talk about the life of Chuck Berry, both the good and the bad, the music he is responsible for and the impact that music has had on all of our lives. Chuck Berry is truly one of the Legends of Rock & Roll.
