RIP Chuck Berry: Great Covers of His Songs

Chuck Berry, the father of Rock ‘n Roll, has passed away. No matter what you thought of him as a person, there’s no denying the fact that he was the most instrumental man in shaping Rock ‘n Roll, as tributes paid to him by the giants of the genre such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, John Lennon, Mic Jagger, and others have paid him.

The king is dead.

To commemorate his memory, I thought of sharing the works of some other great artists across the genres and sub-genres so you can relive those classics through the interpretations of the master’s great disciples.

David Bowie – Around And Around
