I remember my mother in her late seventies telling me she hated to go to sleep because everyone she dreamed of was dead. I blew it off as old people talk.
I don't dream about people; but of all the music I grew up with almost everyone is dead. 1950's and 1960's Rock and Roll - mostly gone, or if they are still around they are fucking old.
And now Chuck Berry. To me, he and Jerry Lee were the original rockers.
"It's only Rock and Roll
Go with the flow
And try to have a good time"
( Cledus Purcell from James Lee Burke's Robicheaux series)
