Chuck Berry

Posted by shanoah on May 28, 2009

Well, I’d say this theme’s on the verge of petering out, just for lack of things we haven’t played. I think the album Double Fantasy is what got me into John Lennon, though, and that’s where Just Like Starting Over was from.

Today, I have two songs from a concert with Chuck Berry, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono. The first song is Memphis, Tennessee. Chuck and John are jamming, everything’s going great, then Yoko grabs the mike in the background and:


Jeez, Yoko. There are songs that sound would have been good in. This isn’t one of them.

Now, here is another song from the same concert, Johnny B. Goode. This one, I thought was rather amusing because of what’s going on in the background. They’re jamming, everything’s going great, we watch as Yoko gravitates over to the mike, holds it to her face, presumably to make the same horrible noises as last song, and…

Nothing. Some anonymous sound tech I love very much switched her mike off after the last song. She doesn’t seem to realize this, since she keeps doing it throughout the song. Beautiful.
