Composition #1: Intro



So, uh, when Chuck plays a gig, he plays with a pickup band, you know, local guys, and one night he was in in town, and we were in town, so we called him up and said ‘don’t go with these other guys, we’ll do it’ and he said yes.

So we’re getting close to show time, and he hasn’t shown up, and we haven’t got a set list. Chuck finally arrives and we say ‘hey Chuck, what’re we playing tonight?’

And he says: ‘We’re gonna to play some Chuck Berry songs.’

He starts up the first number, and it’s in a weird key, so we run over to Steve who knows all the keys, but he shrugs so I say

Well, I guess we’re playing Johnny B Goode.’”2
