The first thing I did after reading that Chuck Berry died was listen to some of his music on the Internet. I expected to be more excited, but that was not the case. I will have to go back and listen to his music, again. My problem with Chuck Berry isn't the man or his music, but rather the fact that his style has been copied ad nauseam.

There's a quote I can't find on the internet. I think it was attributed to the guitarist Steve Vai. He said he could play the exact solos of Hendrix, with all the nuances included. The only problem was, he couldn't figure out how Hendrix conceived of the solos in the first place.
