Johnny B. Goode

Another blues hero passed. Johnnie Johnson, a Rock N' Roll Hall of Famer, inspiration for the song "Johnny B. Goode," died April 13 at his home in St. Louis. He was 80 and suffered recently from pneumonia and a kidney ailment.

There are fewer and fewer people who can play authentic blues piano these days.
