See The Exact Moment Chuck Berry “Invented” Rock and Roll [VIDEO]
Are you ready to see the EXACT MOMENT that Chuck Berry invented Rock and Roll? Well, at least according to the1985 film Back to the Future. Do you remember near the end of the movie when Michael J Fox’s character Marty McFly, took over the “Enchantment Under the Sea” Dance at the High School and cranked out a smokin’ version of Johnny B. Goode? It’s an awesome scene made even more awesome by a quick cutaway of one of the members of the band freaking out at hearing Rock and Roll for the first time. Remember, this was 1955. And luckily for Chuck Berry, his cousin Marvin was leading the band that night. Marvin ran offstage during the Marty McFly guitar solo to call his cousin:
“Chuck, Chuck, it’s Marvin! Your cousin, Marvin Berry? You know that new sound you’ve been lookin’ for? Well, LISTEN TO THIS...”
Check out the moment Chuck Berry heard Rock and Roll for the first time…about 1:30 in. Thanks, Marvin. Thanks, Chuck!
