Dick Clark

More thoughts while waiting for the world's oldest teenager to get out of the hospital. I was discussing voyerism with a co-worker recently and he didn't know who Chuck Berry was! I said "you know, Johnny B. Goode, Hail Hail Rock n' Roll, Sweet Little Sixteen." At which point he said somewhat unconvincingly "Oh yah." What is this world coming to when young people don't recognize one of the founding fathers of rock n' roll, let alone a world class pervert? Shit, the guy almost invented rock guitar and probably the toilet cam as well. From penning "Maybellene" to pissing on his girlfriends, Chuck Berry is a legend. He was a multi-talented singer, song writer, guitar god. He could multi-task as well, often eating a sandwich while concurrently getting his knob polished. And no doubt at the same time keeping an eye on the closed circuit TV in case a woman had to take a dump at his theme park.

It is up to us, the older generation, to teach the young'ns about our childhood heroes. I know I will.

A couple of years ago, when Chuck Berry heard about a "Jack In The Box" manager putting a camera in the woman's bathroom he was rumored to say, "just another example of the white man steeling my ideas."
