Ever Worked For A Tough Boss?

If you think you have, you may want to reconsider your experience once you see/read what Keith Richards and Taylor Hackford had to put up with when together they attempted to honor Rock & Roll godfather Chuck Berry back in 1986 on his 60th birthday. Keith's devotion to Chuck and his work runs way deep and he endures way more shit than any other human would possibly put up with to get the chance to make the concerts happen. Nobody can blame Chuck for taking the measures he employs to ensure he gets paid considering that he's probably been ripped off his entire life, but his penchant for being a raging asshole is well known and most of the time his behavior is completely unwarranted as the movie accurately depicts. Naturally, the epic train wreck preparations for the shows make for a great documentary and the resulting performances are unbelievable, not only for the fact that they sound so good, but for the amazing fact that they happened at all.

Needless to say, my copy of "Hail, Hail Rock and Roll" has already been pre-ordered from Amazon.com...

I caught that article on CNN, I love the fact that most of the Keith interview segemnts were filmed in a public restroom with him seated in a big ol' comfy chair.

Gotta see this. It is so sad that the bitterness consumes Berry even when he is at a point where he could have cashed in at last. Still, the guy is incredible.

C. Berry = Bitter

You're gonna love the scenes where Keith is getting the business end of Chuck's bi-polar paranoia. As much as you may not like Keith, you'll apreciate his devotion to this guy and his music after seeing how much shit him and everybody else has to take in order to get this thing made.

Nothing says useful and relaxing like playing poker and listening to some latin music, except for maybe kicking the crap out of blogspammers!
