Keith Richards Pays Tribute To Chuck Berry
And Richards recorded a video tribute to the man he credits with influencing his musical direction. The Stones guitarist says: "Chuck Berry - he just leapt out of the radio at me. I ate him basically, I breathed him. It wasn't just food, he was the air I breathed for many years when I was learning guitar.
"Such a great voice, such a great player and also such a great showman - it was all in one package. If I listened to Chuck Berry, I was full for the day." Watch the tribute here.
