Chuck Berry
Rock n Roll was originally Black music.

thank you

Yes, him and little Richard never get their due smh

except…chuck berry didn’t invent rock n roll…

Sister Rosetta Tharpe predates both chuck berry and little richard by quite a few years
Two of Tharpe’s hit songs were released in like 1944-45 when Chuck Berry was a) incarcerated and b) still a high school student, Tharpe basically discovered Little Richard, and she’s referred to as the godmother of rock n roll
lol just
throwin that out there

^^^EXACTLY
but Sister Rosetta was a woman and queer… so Black men will totally overlook her.

rock music was created by a black bisexual woman

Sister Rosetta new idol

Sister Rosetta Rocked the world

Spread the truth and dead the lies

3 KICK ASS BLACK BISEXUAL MOTHER OF ROCK AND ROLL 3

I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS WOMAN!MUSIC NERDS - EDUCATE ME NOW!


I’m almost positive this is the same woman who actually sang “You Ain’t Nothin But A Hound Dog” first before Elvis stole it…

And her version was BETTER 

WAIT! WHAT? He didn’t sing that first? I need air and music. Someone tell me more. 

Big Mama Thornton recorded Hound Dog in 1952.  She is the first. 



See this just makes that song actually make sense to me for the first time so you know, hat-tip for that, too, you have relieved my endless puzzlement I’ve had since I was a small child. 

Wonderful documentary on her life  legacy in rock n roll
Today, March 20th is her birthday so can we just take the time to list some of her amazing accomplishments
- she was one of the very first great gospel artists who crossed over into rb, rock n roll, and gained mainstream success
- she frequently performed with a racially integrated band
- guitar playing was seen as a “man’s” skill, but that didn’t stop her from beating out many guys in guitar battles at the Apollo
- she may have been one of the first successful black artists to even have a tour bus with her name on it
- this woman literally turned her wedding day into a rock concert for over 20,000 fans
- openly bisexual in her private life
- she sang with little richard in what would be his first public performance at her concert
- she held a successful tour in the UK during the early 1960′s well before the “british invasion” of rock n roll

Everything started with beautiful color
