    I like most of the stones and Beatles ones.

    I like the way the dead do promises land.

    Quite seriously it's a fact that my first musical memory is hearing Chuck Berry's first release in 1955 when I was 4 years old.....so I'm going to honk my own horn on this one.

    My version of Maybellene played on a 1970 Guild F-212 and a 1930 Gibson L-5.



    Enjoy!

    Enjoy.



    NOTE: Chuck Berry's only Number One single was his cover of "My Ding-A-Ling". My understanding is that his previous record companies never wanted to pay the fee for the survey.
