This novelty song about... um... discovery... was Chuck's only #1 song. It hit the charts in 1972 and it was recorded in England as part of an arts festival. The recording almost didn't happen because Chuck was close to 2 hours late, and as you may be able to tell, a little tipsy. But he quickly turned an unruly crowd to his favor...oops, it's the UK... favour.

This is the "long version", and I'm sure you'll enjoy Chuck and his interaction with the crowd and his special sense of humor. Not a lot of his guitar magic in this one... just his amazing personality and a fun little song that's sure to make you smile.

BTW: Last year, Chuck went into the studio and recorded a new album of all new songs. It's due to be released later this year. Can't wait!

He is now one of the immortals, but believe it or not, he only had one #1 hit... and this, with of one the most famous riffs of all-time, isn't it.

More from Chuck as the day rotates...

His mother told him, "Someday you will be a man, And you will be the leader of a big old band. Many people coming from miles around, to hear you play your music when the sun go down. Maybe someday your name will be in lights, sayin' 'Johnny B. Goode tonight'."

Go in peace, Chuck.

You might be surprised to know that the late... great... CB had only one #1 song. Believe it or not, "Johnny B. Goode", a song based on his life, wasn't it.

I'm plenty sad right now. I'll check in with more Chuck tomorrow...

Plenty sad.

From the FNS Newsroom...
What we know today as "Rock" and "Pop" music would not be what it is without him. He was the trailblazer and pioneer for all of it. He "was rock’s master theorist and conceptual genius, a songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they did themselves."

Indeed. My hero was 90, so the "gone too soon" label isn't applicable. But everything that was said above, in the obit from +The New York Times, and in the days to come certainly is.

Thank you, Chuck... for everything.

FNS: The Battle of the 70s Versus the 90s!

Leonard Cohen - "Chelsea Hotel No.2"

Goodnight, all. Love the music from both era's, and it's been fun. But this boy left for work at 4am, so I'm calling it a night. Be good to each other, and thanks to all of our contributors tonight. You are all the best. See you soon!

Hello everyone! In our little mini-battle tonight, we're going to see which decade kicks-ass better: the 70s, or the 90s. It's a contest determined by +1's, comments, and requests, and at the end of the show, only ONE winner will be standing. Requests taken all night, and I have a bottle of cheap red open, so grab a drink, and let's get this show started!
