His only number 1 hit

 

Actually, Maybellene was his first #1 hit, but only on the R&B charts. My Ding-a-ling was his only #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. It's a funny song, but so many of his great songs that helped shape rock and roll couldn't break past the white rock artists ahead of him or the black Motown artists who were tearing up the charts, then the British Invasion came along with his riffs and he just got lost in the wake.

But dang, he was good at what he did. "No Particular Place to Go" is still one of the greatest, most perfect rock songs of all time.

Can't believe he was 90! That is a rarity in this world to live that old. May he RIP! A true pioneer.

This guy created rock and roll, IMO, and put all the pieces together.
