ROCK ‘N ROLL ICON CHUCK BERRY HAS PASSED AWAY …
Chuck Berry, one of the pioneer’s and icons of Rock n’ Roll music has passed away at the age of 90. The music legend was best known for “Johnny B. Goode,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Maybellene” and “My Ding-a-Ling” to name just a few. In 1986 Chuck Berry became one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 1985 he also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. However, better than words to describe Chuck Berry, it is better to just play his music.
Johnny B. Goode
Chuck Berry, the singer, songwriter and guitar great who practically defined rock music with his impeccably twangy hits “Maybellene,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Memphis,” “My Ding-a-Ling” and “Sweet Little Sixteen,” has died. He was 90.
The singer/songwriter, whose classic “Johnny B. Goode” was chosen by Carl Sagan to be included on the golden record of Earth Sounds and Music launched with Voyager in 1977, died Saturday afternoon, St. Charles County Police Department confirmed. The cause of death was not revealed.
While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they knew themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.
His guitar lines wired the lean twang of country and the bite of the blues into phrases with both a streamlined trajectory and a long memory. And tucked into the lighthearted, telegraphic narratives that he sang with such clear enunciation was a sly defiance, upending convention to claim the pleasures of the moment.

In “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Can’t Catch Me” and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In “Promised Land,” “Too Much Monkey Business” and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons.
Roll Over Beethoven – Chuck Berry Live
Mr. Berry was already well past his teens when he wrote mid-1950s manifestoes like “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “School Day.” Born Charles Edward Anderson Berry on Oct. 18, 1926, in St. Louis, he grew up in a segregated, middle-class neighborhood there, soaking up gospel, blues, and rhythm and blues, along with some country music.
He spent three years in reform school after a spree of car thefts and armed robbery. He received a degree in hairdressing and cosmetology and worked for a time as a beautician; he married Themetta Suggs in 1948 and started a family. She survives him, as do four children: Ingrid Berry, Melody Eskridge, Aloha Isa Leigh Berry and Charles Berry Jr.
By the early 1950s, he was playing guitar and singing blues, pop standards and an occasional country tune with local combos. Shortly after joining Sir John’s Trio, led by the pianist Johnnie Johnson, he reshaped the group’s music and took it over.
From the Texas guitarist T-Bone Walker, Mr. Berry picked up a technique of bending two strings at once that he would rough up and turn into a rock ’n’ roll talisman, the Chuck Berry lick, which would in turn be emulated by the Rolling Stones and countless others. He also recognized the popularity of country music and added some hillbilly twang to his guitar lines. Mr. Berry’s hybrid music, along with his charisma and showmanship, drew white as well as black listeners to the Cosmopolitan Club in St. Louis.
Fake Oscar: ‘La La Land’ Declared Best Picture in Major Acadamy Award Screw Up … ‘Moonlight’ Later Declared Winner
ITS CALLED KARMA BABY: MAYBE THE OSCARS SHOULD HAVE WORRIED MORE ABOUT GETTING THEIR SHOW CORRECT, RATHER THAN JUST BASHING TRUMP …
And the Academy award for Best Picture goes to
La La Land. Oops, I mean Moonlight. In what can only be described as the biggest screw up in Oscar’s history, The Academy Awards actually announced the wrong winner for the biggest award of the night. UNREAL. I have said for years, how do so many people put merit in a profession where all the individuals do is read off a dummy card and some one else’s work? In this case, they couldn’t even do that. Thus, for this colossal gaffe, the 89th Academy Awards will not be remembered for all of the anti-Trump liberal gibberish, it will be forever remembered for presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway declaring that “La La Land” had won during the evening’s final presentation, even though it had not.
And we are supposed to listen to this fools give us political advice and lecture us when they can’t even read a card or get something as simple as providing an envelop to some one properly? Hey lefty Hollywood, maybe the Russians switched the envelops.
In a moment that will go down as one of the strangest and most shocking in Oscar history, “Moonlight” was named Oscar winner for best picture only after “La La Land” was announced first.
The room was in disarray as they sorted out the error.
Here’s how it went down:
Co-presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were on stage to present the award. After listing the nominated films. Beatty opened the envelope and then paused for longer than usual. He looked around and over at Dunaway, who then announced “La La Land” had won.
Producers and cast members from “La La Land,” the candy-colored big-screen romantic musical about two artists striving to fulfill their dreams, made their way to the stage to celebrate. They had begun their thank yous when the mistake was caught.
“La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz interrupted the celebration, calling attention to the discrepancy on the winners card in his hand.
Before walking onstage to present the final award of the night, Faye Dunaway had a last-minute hair touch-up and Warren Beatty was in great spirits.
The atmosphere backstage was electric, and everything was going so well.
Until it wasn’t.
Within moments of Dunaway announcing La La Land as the Best Picture winner, it was clear something was awry.
“Oh my god, it’s Moonlight!” a stage manager said aloud, and into a headset, while starting to pace. “Oh my god! Oh my god!” As the seconds passed and the La La Land producers, Oscars aloft, were well into their acceptance speeches, the low-level confusion backstage turned into jaw-dropping disbelief.
“Oh my f—king God, it’s not La La Land, it’s Moonlight! He’s got the wrong envelope!” said someone from the production crew, hands on head in shock. “They read the wrong envelope!”
ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTORS HAS PASSED AWAY AND WAY TOO SOON …
Bill Paxton, the actor best known for his works in such movies as Titanic, Aliens, Tombstone and Twister and television shows like Big Love and Training Day, has died at the age of 61 due to complications of surgery. According to TMZ, Paxton underwent heart surgery and had post operative complications and suffered a fatal stroke. Paxton was an amazing talent that could take on any role. Paxton is survived by his 2 children and his wife Louise Newbury. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends He will be missed.
“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery,” his family said in a statement on Sunday, the day of the 89th Academy Awards. “A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable.”
Paxton was born on May 17, 1955, in Fort Worth, Texas, and his father was in the lumber business. When he was 8, he, his brother and dad went to see John F. Kennedy at a hotel in Fort Worth on the day the president was assassinated.
Bill Paxton discussing film-making always my dream in a 2005 interview with Larry King
Bill Paxton was one of my favorite actors dating back to the early 80′s. Many know Paxton for his role of Brock Lovett in Titanic, meteorologist Bill Harding in Twister or Pvt. Hudson from Aliens; however, do you remember him in the many other lesser roles he played? Bill Paxton also appeared in the following films and one of my 80′s favorites, Weird Science (1985) as Chet Donnolly (video), True Lies (1994) as car sales man and faux-spy Simon, Tombstone (1993) as Morgan Earp, another favorite, Vertical Limit (2000) as Elliot Vaughn, Predator 2 (1990) as Jerry Lambert, Apollo 13 (1995) as Fred Haise, U-571 (2000) as Lt. Cmdr. Mike Dahlgren and Next of Kin (1989) as Gerald Gates. Do you remember seeing him in Stripes? He was there as one of the soldiers. How About campy 80′s film, Streets of Fire? He was in that too as Clyde the bar tender.
Tribute to Bill Paxton (Titanic) Now that were here
Bill Paxton was a brilliant actor and could take on any role from the most serious to the most ridiculous and be equally as great. How many people do you know could play a captain searching for the Heart of the Sea in Titanic and then being transformed into a turd by Kelly LeBrock as in Weird Science. I find myself so very sad today as such a contemporary passed away following a surgery. A bright light was taken far too soon. Rest in Peace, Bill.
‘Girls’ Star Lena Dunham is Sharing a New Weight-loss Trick … Soul-crushing Pain & Devastation & Hopelessness Due to Trump’s Election
Hey Lena, Look On the Bright Side … You Lost Weight.
Lena Dunham, one of the many over-reactionary Hollywood elitist types who has lost their minds over the presidential election of Donald J. Trump shared her weight loss secret. In an interview with Howard Stern she revealed that her new found weight loss was not a result of Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem or working out. The reason for her weight loss was a result of soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness after the election of Trump.
Most people turn to diets and exercise to lose extra pounds, but Girls star Lena Dunham is sharing a new weight-loss trick you may not want to try at home.
Dunham stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show Monday morning and revealed that she has none other than Donald Trump to thank for her slim figure.
“Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food,” she told Stern after he complimented her look. “Everyone’s been asking like, ‘What have you been doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness and you, too, will lose weight.’”
The actress, who was on hand to promote the upcoming sixth and final season of Girls, has not been shy about her dislike for the President, and apparently, the feeling is mutual.
“He said I was a B-list actor with no mojo,” Dunham told Stern, who followed up by asking if it was a mistake for someone with responsibilities as great as Trump’s to pay such close attention to celebrities.
By the way, why are you still in America, I thought you said you were moving to Canada and the Great White North? So take off you hoser!
