Sadly enough that's not the first time I've heard that about him. He was supposed to appear at a fund raiser I was at a few years ago and was an an apologetic no show.

Stil, musically he set the standard for years to come.

The guy was incredibly smart. Just listening too him in an interview was a treat. I guess you don't invent rock & roll and remain one of it's greats for 70 years, without a helluva mind.

The guy literally invented most of the stories that are embedded in modern music. And most of the showmanship / routines. They had a clip of him yesterday where he said the the duckwalk was just him trying to get up from from falling down, and people cheered so much that he kept it as a thing.

He was also an incredible scumbag. Excerpt:

"...Berry's 1961 conviction for the transportation of a 14-year-old girl across a state border for "immoral purposes", and his 1990 decision to pay a settlement to 59 women who accused him of secretly filming them in bathrooms in his Missouri restaurant, and subsequently brought a class action lawsuit against him."

Shit, he was a colossal asshole onstage! I saw him a couple of times around 1987, and at one show, he threatened to walk off stage for some stupid reason I don't recall, other than it was dumb.

Well, to be fair, Trump is a coward that doesn't say much, except to try and prove that his tiny dick is bigger than everyone else's. Repuglicans love sexual predators and scumbags. You really don't see the irony here, do you?

And that's different from trump, how, exactly? The guy's a sexual deviant, admitted sexual predator, and you're still defending him. Got it. You're a hypocrite. No worries.

haha, let's see, what was the basic difference between Nixon, Hastert, Libby, Sanford, Craig, Foley....and Bubba Clinton, Teddy K, Weiner, Hillary, Holder, Bawney Fwank........oh that's right, only one of these groups ever had real trouble for their crimes, especially from their own party. One party idolizes their criminals.....
