Still love ya, Chuck. That, in spite of you possibly being to blame for my tinnitus. But you didn't make me stand right in front of the stage back in the spring of '71. It was so good.

He truly was one of the most genuine,down to earth guys that I have ever known.
I have done work for both Chuck and his Brother Paul here as they are locals in STL.

Paul told me one time that everything you hear about Chuck is True!
"But I am sure glad he is my Brother and not your Brother too!"

They broke the mold with Chuck for sure and Rock and Roll would NEVER be the same.

Hail,Hail!

Definitely an innovator. Anyone that could inspire so many bands, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, John Lennon, Emmylou Harris, The Kinks, Duane Allman and many others to cover his music deserves a special place in the history of rock n roll.

RIP Chuck. A great talent enjoyed by millions who influenced so many.

You and Jimi are up there playing Johhny B. Goode! :thumbsup:

I had to post this picture again!

Me an Al Hendrix in his house in Seattle,WA. in April and May of 2000.
