And I can guarantee you that you were a lot more articulate than I would be if I found myself unexpectedly speaking to Chuck Berry (or any of his ilk) on the telephone! Probably I would have made Ralph Kramden sound like Lawrence Olivier. In fact, I doubt I would have even made it to Ralph Kramden; with me, Chuck probably would have heard little other than dead air on the line. (I actually have an anecdote about something similar that happened to me once ... but now isn't the time for it.)
Thanks, Ronnie, for a great tribute to the true father of rock and roll.
