I am saddened to hear of Chuck's passing. He was on the bill of the very first concert I ever went to back in 1968. It was him, The Beach Boys and Rare Earth, To this day he was one of the greatest performers I have ever seen. I was lucky to see at a time when he was in his prime and he put on an unforgettable performance that etched itself in my memory. IMO the true father of rock and roll. RIP Chuck.

Chuck played the guitar in piano key and not guitar tabs so he took a lot of other artist by surprise. I don't know if it's true but Keith Richards reported that Chuck punched him in the eye during one of their sound checks.
