Today, Chuck Berry passed. He will be missed. Yet, his music will remain on tour for years to come. “Johnny B. Goode” was a controversial selection for the golden records within the Voyager I and II spacecraft, launched in 1977 and awaiting discovery by a galaxy far, far away.
I’m amazed NASA built a space craft that still explores the far reaches of deep space. It’s truly a feat of engineering. Think about it, How do you design an electronic device to run for thirty plus years? Just drawing up the design principles requires more forethought than most consider in a lifetime.
Musicians have the same gift. Ideas, mixed with the right tempo and beat, can carry on for years to come. It’s just like a ringing a bell. Go Johnny go. Go.
