We lost Chuck Berry yesterday. Without Chuck Berry, there’s no Rolling Stones, there's no Beatles, there's no me.

He was an incredibly influential musician and amazing lyricist.

Though I'd never sung this song before, I wanted to find a way to pay tribute to him because we owe him so much.

Sting's intro: We lost Chuck Berry today. Without Chuck Berry there’s no Rolling Stones,there's no Beatles, there's no me. He was an incredibly influential musician also an amazing lyricist. I just want to use this opportunity to pay tribute to him, because we owe him so much. I am going to sing a song called Johnny B. Goode, which I have never sung in my life..which is written down in front of me,
Igor Vasilenko
He looks from heaven, and maybe he is standing by and he listens to you how you play the music he loved cat. And as usual he looks smiling with screwed up eyes. There was so much peace and love in his look that would be enough for everyone, but people do not need this chance -what a pity how sorry.
Paul Pashley
Awesome tribute to Chuck from another legend! I hope you like my tribute to your work that inspired me to perform. We have had nearly 26000 hits on our version of 'Englishman..' hope you get to look :) https://www.facebook.com/paulpashleysinger/posts/1749404398408868

Roxanne ,what a nice song ! I was just watching at your interview on T.V.A PROGRAM ,and was very sympa ..You know what make a diffrence with a song ,or any song ..It is your voice .You have the talent and the creativity to make it better with great emotions and charisma...It is like tasting a champagne for the first time ,it has a bubbly and sparkling taste with the fragrance of your heart ...A fan ,Sarah Doreen Thorne

The North American leg of the "57th & 9th Tour" has come to an end and as I reflect on all of the memorable shows, beautiful theatres and strolls through St. Louis, New Orleans, Montreal, New York and all of the cities that we visited in the US and Canada, I'm grateful to the welcoming audiences, my talented musicians and relentlessly hard working crew. The "57th & 9th Tour" continues with the start of our European leg on March 21st in Barcelona and I can't wait to play again in just a few days. See you soon!
