The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Case Western Reserve University have announced that Chuck Berry will be honored as the 17th Annual American Music Masters series.
The series starts on Monday, Oct. 22 and culminates in a concert on Saturday, Oct. 27. No disrespect to any of the previous 16 honorees, but there simply aren’t 16 acts or performers in rock and roll history more important than Chuck Berry.
Here is Sweet Little Sixteen from a 1967 concert at Winterland:
