When you’ve been making rock ’n’ roll for 50 years, you learn to never say never. Or, in Graham Nash’s case, just know that ‘never’ can be temporary.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told Billboard this time last year that there would ‘never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills & Nash record or show.’ The founding member of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young) has had a falling out over personal issues with fellow founding member David Crosby and told the magazine he didn’t want ‘anything to do with (him) at all.’ (Via The Modesto Bee.)

St. Charles County Police Department responded to an emergency call at 12:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon.”

My all time favorite Chuck Berry song

While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they did themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.

John Lennon once said, “If you had to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.’ ”

“In my universe, Chuck is irreplaceable,” said Bob Dylan.
