For the sake of time and space, it'd be easier to discuss the artists and scenes Chuck Berry [i]didn't[/i] influence than the ones he did. But rest assured: that won't stop us. If you're thinking that the Beach Boys kidnapped Berry's "Sweet Little Sixteen" from a sock hop and morphed it into "Surfin' USA," you're not alone; Berry later received a writer's credit for the woody-waxin' wonder. Keith Richards might never have chatted up soon-to-be fellow Rolling Stone Mick Jagger if the latter hadn't arrived on a train one fateful morning with a freshly imported pressing of Chuck's [i]One Dozen Berrys[/i]; if not for that chance meeting, we'd never have heard the wheels-coming-off glory of [i]Exile On Main St[/i]'s "Rocks Off." And producer/writer/guitar deity Dave Edmunds assembled a retrofied wrecking crew later known as Rockpile to turn the 1977 calendar back two decades — without missing a power-pop beat — in his cover of Nick Lowe's "I Knew the Bride" (itself inspired by Berry's "You Never Can Tell"). From Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen, from Led Zeppelin to T. Rex, we've got all the fruits of Berry's family tree.
