Chuck Berry, then a relatively unknown blues musician from St. Louis, arrived at a Southside Chicago club to hear the legendary Muddy Waters perform. During a break, Berry introduced himself to Waters backstage, toyed with the string of his guitar and asked if he could play one of his songs.

Waters was so impressed with what he heard that he arranged an appointment with Leonard Chess of Chess Records, then the leading major "black music" record company in the country. Chess took a gamble on the obscure musician from Missouri and let him record two songs on a disk. One was called "Maybelline" and caused an immediate sensation, quickly becoming one of the most popular songs in the country, one of the first songs to win a triple crown on the Billboard charts: number one in rhythm-and-blues, number one in country-and-western and number one in pop.

For Chuck Berry, it was the beginning of a sound that would excite and electrify three generations to come – the sound of rock 'n' roll!

"Roll Over Beethoven" followed in 1956, a song which influenced millions of teenagers in America. Several years later, in the 1960's, the Beatles earned one of the few gold records they received for a song they didn't write when they paid homage to Berry with their version of "Beethoven."

Among the greatest hits which Berry created include "Rock and Roll Music" (later recorded by the Beatles), "Around and Around," "Carol," "You Can't Catch Me," "Memphis," "Johnny B. Goode," "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Sweet Sixteen," "School Days," "Brown-Eyed Handsome Man," "Nadine," "Almost Grown," "Too Much Monkey Business," "No Particular Place to Go," "Back in the U.S.A.," "Reelin' and Rockin'," "Thirty Days" and "My Ding-A-Ling."
