It’s no exaggeration to say that, with songs likeRock 'n’ Roll Music, Roll Over Beethoven,andJohnny B. Goode,Chuck Berry invented rock 'n’ roll. However, his career has been overshadowed, and often stalled, by tax evasion, liaisons with an underage prostitute, and jail sentences. Now, John Collis interviews those who have worked with Berry and uncovers the truth about his life back in St. Louis. The result is a clear-eyed portrait of a musical genius who, even in his seventies, is still up on stage singingSweet Little Sixteen.
