RIP Chuck Berry.


    Few people can claim the title "Father of Rock and Roll, but Chuck Berry was one of them. He died today at the age of 90.

     One of his classic hits had an Alabama mention---"Reelin and Rockin":

"This song is sung from the perspective of a railroad worker in Alabama trying make a few bucks and get through the workday. At the end of the day, the workers are on the tracks playing dice when the foreman warns them that a train is coming. The words "Let It Rock" do not appear in the lyrics, but they indicate that the train coming through represents Rock And Roll"
