Happy (late) Birthday to Chuck Berry

Happy late birthday to Charles Edward Anderson “Chuck” Berry (born October 18, 1926).

Chuck Berry Fixes a Hot Dog, San Diego 1970

This is a photo I took when I was 16 or so at the San Diego Civic Center’s Rock n Roll revival show circa 1970. Chuck Berry played with the Coasters, Bill Haley and the Comets and Bo Diddley who I would later meet at the Atlanta airport — more friendly than Chuck!
Anyway, I took a break from the show and saw Chuck Berry fixing a hot dog. Frickin’ Chuck Berry! So I asked him if I could take his picture and he grunted something possibly profane and I took his picture. One shot. With my old Yashica twin lens 645.
