    • Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism and music featuring guitar solos and showmanship that were a major influence on subsequent rock music.[1]

      Born into a middle-class African-American family in St. Louis, Missouri, Berry had an interest in music from an early age and gave his first public performance at Sumner High School. While still a high school student he was convicted of armed robbery and was sent to a reformatory, where he was held from 1944 to 1947. After his release, Berry settled into married life and worked at an automobile assembly plant. Berry claimed on The Tonight Show he was influenced primarily by 1940s swing artist Louis Jordan. "The main guy was Louis Jordan. I wanted to sing like Nat Cole, with lyrics like Louis Jordan with the swing of Bennie Goodman with Charlie Christian on guitar, playing Carl Hogan's riffs, with the soul of Muddy Waters."[2] By early 1953, influenced by the guitar riffs and showmanship techniques of the blues musician T-Bone Walker, Berry began performing with the Johnnie Johnson Trio.[3] His break came when he traveled to Chicago in May 1955 and met Muddy Waters, who suggested he contact Leonard Chess, of Chess Records. With Chess he recorded "Maybellene"—Berry's adaptation of the country song "Ida Red"—which sold over a million copies, reaching number one on Billboard magazine's rhythm and blues chart. By the end of the 1950s, Berry was an established star with several hit records and film appearances and a lucrative touring career. He had also established his own St. Louis nightclub, Berry's Club Bandstand.

              Trivia (6)
              Married third husband, pianist Bill Chadney, at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

              Her popularity as sultry, dusky-voiced nightclub singer Edie Hart on the television series Peter Gunn (1958) inspired two music albums, "Lola Wants You" (1957) and "Dreamsville" (1959).

              Inherited her singing talents from her parents, both evangelistic singers; started in films as an MGM singing extra, in The Pirate (1948), Easter Parade (1948) and The Unfinished Dance (1947).

              Won the "Best Actress" Award (Silver Bear) at the Berlin Film Festival for Lord Love a Duck (1966); there was a controversy because some members of the jury wanted to cite the three female leads of the movie (Albright, Tuesday Weld and Ruth Gordon), but other members felt that to give a "joint" award would diminish the award's significance. (In 2006, for example, the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival went to the female "cast" of Volver (2006), rather than just to Pen

                    • Sam Panopoulos, who has died aged 83, leaves a legacy that has delighted, confused and appalled diners worldwide. Often at the same time.

                      Panopoulos is the Canadian man who invented Hawaiian pizza, a dish so divisive it led to a presidential outburst this year.

                      He passed away in hospital suddenly on Thursday.

                      Panopoulos emigrated to Canada from Greece in 1954 when he was 20, eventually going on to own and operate several successful restaurants with his two brothers.

                      It was in one of those restaurants in 1962 that Panopoulos was inspired to add canned pineapple to pizza.
