Chuck Berry and the Innocence Index

It always seemed to me that you can tell a lot about a person from the way they hold their guitar.

Think of the early Beatles, Paul with his bass practically under his chin, John's a little lower. As they became less innocent the guitars sank...

Keef on the slide kneewards. Then Hendrix. But the daddy of them all had to be Chuck Berry. Sometimes barely off the ground, that low-swinging guitar told a tale all of its own.
