Speaks his mind on music & movies!
This is ELO’s take on the classic Chuck Berry song and in CB’s opinion they kill it. When this song came out CB went nuts for it. These guys sounded like they were having fun. You can hear all that rock n roll history, Chuck, Jerry Lee, Beatles. Man do I like this version. The classic intro and Boom! Rock n Roll City!
The song just builds and builds. The strings are underneath just waiting to bust out and they do. Well into the song you hear Jeff Lynne growl, that’s how the song was effecting him. He fires off some great guitar licks, sings it like he means it, piano rocks, the drums cook and then the strings just take it into orbit. ELO pays tribute to Ludwig and rock n roll. They rock out big time. What a celebration of music. What a great song. CB’s style.
When CB was a snot nosed kid he used to slap this on and go crazy (Crazier). He didn’t want it to end. If you love rock n roll like CB does revisit or discover this gem.
