Early Rock 'n' Roller Chuck Berry, Guitar God, Dies @ 90 Comments (0)

Chuck Berry, a man everyone except the youngest people out there will always remember doing the above, has died at 90 after being found unresponsive in his St. Louis home.

Via ExtraTV:

Police confirmed they responded to a medical emergency Saturday at 12:40 p.m. at Berry's St. Louis home. Berry was found to be unresponsive and, in spite of life-saving measures that were administered, he was declared dead at 1:26 p.m., according to police.

The department issued a statement that read, “The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry. The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”

Berry's “Johnny B. Goode” (1958) became his signature hit, and would later liven up Back to the Future (1985):

 

Berry was also the hitmaker behind iconic tunes like “Maybellene” (1955), “Roll Over Beethoven” (1956) and “You Never Can Tell” (1964), the latter of which you may remember from Pulp Fiction (1994):

Berry wrote the tune in prison in 1962 while serving what wound up being 20 months of a three-year sentence for transporting a 14-year-old girl from Mexico to his nightclub for what he said was a job, but what she said — after being fired — was really a sexual arrangement. Regardless of Berry's guilt or innocence, he felt railroaded by the all-white jury and emerged, according to fellow rocker Carl Perkins, an embittered man.

In the '80s and '90s, Berry's sexual proclivities — an obsession with making and watching porn, a predilection for heavy scat — became the stuff of legend, as documented by Vice via this sordid fax to the late Bob Guccione Sr.

Nevertheless, Berry's career prospered and he never stopped performing. He would go down in history as among the first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and was the subject of a Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, at which he was congratulated by President Bill Clinton in 2000.

His final album — his twentieth — is set for release in 2017. He said in December he was dedicating Chuck to his wife of almost 70 years, Thelmetta, a woman he reportedly hadn't lived with in decades.

He Loved — And Loves — Lucy: My Friend, The Coverboy Comments (0)

Scan 9(Image via Closer)

Closer Magazine has fascinated me since its inception.

A part of the Bauer empire, which includes checkout check-me-outs like Life & Style and In Touch (the title of which will forever belong to the '70s/'80s gay-porn mag in my mind), Closer is an odd duck — instead of 30something moms, it is targeted to old-timers, focusing on subjects who are mostly dead and buried.

The tagline, “Closer to the Stars You Love,” has always struck me as meaning it's for people who are about to join the great stars of yesteryear gossiping over that great clothesline in the sky.

But it's a solid publication, beautifully done. I just can't imagine how Bauer finds the readership — and more power to them for doing so, as nostalgia is a huge part of my own life. (I am closer and closer to the stars I love each day!)

Now, I'm proud that someone I know — who is alive! — is on the cover: ultimate Lucy fan/pal Michael Stern.

Stern, the author of the fabulously dishy-without-being-catty I Had a Ball: My Life with Lucille Ball — Revised Edition ($28.99, iUniverse), gave an exclusive interview to Closer, talking about Lucy's real-life hidden secret. No, she didn't eat Carolyn's Appleby, as my friend John suggested. The interview is more about Lucy's self-doubt in her later years.

Key quote from Stern:

She really stayed home and did not get out. She had to be forced to go to the supermarket. She felt her fans didn't like her anymore, even though it wasn't true because anytime she'd do a public apperance, there was a standing ovation. The applause was deafening.

The rest of the article contains quotes from I Love Lucy guest star (very few of those left!) Barbara Eden, as well as Little Ricky himself, Keith Thibodeaux. Check it out if you can, and definitely check out Stern's book if you, too, loved Lucy.
