    Great songwriter, lyricist, guitar player - his influence is beyond measure, sad to hear he has passed on, thought he'd be around for ever ...

    "He could play his guitar just like a-ringing a bell" (even if it was out of tune a lot of the times ).

    John Lennon once said "If you want to re-name Rock'n'Roll then just call it Chuck Berry."
    That pretty well sums it up.

    What's tragic about dying at 90?

    Think your right OSH, sure I remember him coming on stage for 1hr & he was off as quick as he appeared.
    Was a pleasure to watch him for those 60 min though.

    I often think that what people find saddest about these events is the reminder they give of their own advancing age and mortality.

    Here endeth the lesson.

    I saw him at The Playhouse, wearing yellow strides, played about 45 minutes and there was quite a few boos at the end due to perceived lack of value. It was definitely mid 80s though, i was fifteen and one of my first gigs.

    I saw him at the Usher Hall early 1995 in what I think was my first proper gig. It was brilliant but he didn't play Johnny B Goode which felt a bit controversial at the time. Anyway he was a great performer, guitarist and songwriter and a massive influence for a lot of other musicians. RIP.

    Yip, apart from the yellow strides i do remember being disappointed at the very short set. Still chuffed i got to see one of the all time greats.

    The 80s in Edinburgh were a good time to go to gigs, I managed to see Chuck Berry, BB King and Bo Diddley, the latter two in the nightclub by the Playhouse. Also saw Nico at the La Sorbonne

    Between the Odeon and the Playhouse i must of seen the worlds top bands of the time during the late 70's, 80's and early 90's. Edinburgh was one of 'THEE' destinations for any band.

    Even some of the smaller venues The Jailhouse/Venue, the Night club god can even mind Iron Maiden at Tiffany's.

    Can mind when La Sorbonne first opened, I knew some of the dodgy characters that done the door. Sneaky Petes along the and Nicky Tams up the road.
