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

We arrived in the Arctic Circle a day before our next show on the #57thAnd9th World Tour in Bodø, #Norway. The band and crew were equipped with all of the necessary gear and we went to visit #Saltstraumen, a small strait with the strongest tidal currents in the world. It was an extraordinary experience thanks to our wonderful hosts and captain. Thank you, Norway, for your warm hospitality and magnificent landscapes. We'll see you tonight at Nordlandshallen!
