Maybellene was Chuck Berry's 1955 breakout hit for Chess Records of Chicago. The record sold over a million copies but more importantly it stands as the original road map for guitar based, Rock 'n' Roll music.

As a young, pre-teen I was brought to tears by the emotions Chuck's singing and guitar playing aroused in me.

Thanks for changing my world Chuck...
