He created Rock n Roll in my book. A true showman. RIP

Funny, flamboyant, and super talented.

One of the pioneers of integrating music across racial divisions.

RIP

don't know if these legends ever performed together on this astral plane, but tonight in a Valhalla dance hall this'll be ringing out all night long:

His role in creating rock was overshadowed by Chuck berry as the guitar became the ascendant instrument in the 60's but he pretty much invented what we think of as the sound of a rock band, the over saturated redlined wall of noise.

Incredible shame how he was constantly tormented, he denounced homosexuality and was never at peace. The church really ######ed up his head.

What an amazing career, incredible musician.
