Roll Over Beethoven

My singing days have passed.
My voice is gone.
My throat is worn.
And my lungs are going fast.

~ Chuck Berry, (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2107) as quoted in RollingStone.com, October 27, 2012

  1. He was something else, the old rocker. Had a privilege to see him twice.

  2. Great photo. Though I’m sure CB’s lifestyle didn’t help much.
