re: R&B Thread
Chuck Berry is more a rock n' roll legend (one of the pioneers of genre actually) but Fats is earlier rhythm & blues to the bone and I wouldn't mind talking about them. We can talk about all black artists from the 50s/60s if you want. I grew up on all that music because of my dad and grandmother. Have you seen the Hail, Hail Rock n' Roll concert documentary? It's a very entertaining film half on Chuck's life story and career and half on his 60th Birthday concert celebration with guest artists.
