I was saddened to learn of the death of Chuck Berry, at the age of 90, two days ago. A deeply influential figure, he wrote and was the first to record one of my favourite rock-and-roll songs, Johnny B. Goode.
Berry’s demise inspired a cartoonist at The Times to create a cartoon featuring Nicola Sturgeon as a lead guitarist, in today’s edition. The piece is titled Jock and Roll! You will note her band’s name on a large drum, ‘Chuck Britain’.
