Chuck Berry: They say "That's a Chuck Berry song because it's Ba-du-ba-dada

[scat-sings a riff]

Chuck Berry: ." Well, the first time I heard in that was in one of Carl Hogan's riffs in Louis Jordan's band. We have T-Bone Walker, I love T-Bone Walker's slurs and his blueses; so put a little Carl Hogan, a little T-Bone Walker and a little Charlie Christian, the guitarist in Tommy Dorsey's band, together: look what a span of people that you will please. And that's what I did in Johnny B. Goode, Roll Over Beethoven - And making it simple is another important fact, I think, that resulted in a lot of the artists understanding, and being able to play, my music. If you can call it my music, but there's nothing new under the sun.
