Comment:

When you're such an incredible guitarist, such a pulse-pounding performer, it might get lost on the general public that you're also one of rock's greatest songwriters — but a half-century's worth of musicians know better. If you ever wondered where John Lennon got the idea for "Come Together" — right down to the "flat top, groovin' up" — look no further than Berry's "You Can't Catch Me," which the ex-Beatle retools with a psychedelic twist. While the Rolling Stones took their name from Muddy Waters, they got their first single, "Come On," from Chuck, as Berry disciple Keith Richards lays down a leather-jacket-tough guitar line for Mick Jagger to swagger over. And whether or not Berry's "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" was truly code for "brown [i]skinned[/i] handsome man," Nina Simone fires and inspires with a version lodged midway between Carnaby Street and Birmingham, Alabama, with the cool flame of Black Pride flickering beneath her velvet voice. But don't stop there; from Social Distortion's punked-up rave-up of "Maybeline" to Carlos Santana's starry-skied chill-out in "Havana Moon," pretty much every one of your favorite artists has tried his — or her — luck covering Chuck.
