“Rolling Stone” said : See Chuck Berry Perform at 1958 Newport Jazz Festival

according to

In 1958, Chuck Berry played Rhode Island’s Newport Jazz Festival.
He was a rare rock & roll act alongside acts like Thelonious Monk, Max Roach, Louis Armstrong and Dinah Washington.
The festival was immortalized in Bert Stern’s remarkable documentary Jazz on a Summer’s Day.
Chuck got it from T-Bone Walker, and I got it from Chuck, Muddy Waters, Elmore James and B.B.
The most stunning moment of the film is Berry’s “Sweet Little Sixteen.”

The art of copying, from Chuck Berry to Toyota

Thievery ought to be prevented and punished, and Beijing ought to do more on that front if it wants to be considered a more normal and responsible government.
But, then, so were the Japanese, especially the gentlemen at Toyota, until the day before yesterday, and the Land Cruiser was, arguably, Toyota’s greatest exercise in the highest form of flattery.
The Land Cruiser ended up becoming a vehicle far superior to the ones that inspired it, but the men who build it can hardly complain very convincingly about being copied.
Even the name “Land Cruiser” is a knockoff, inspired by the British Land Rover — which was itself if not exactly a copy of the Jeep then at the very least deeply indebted to it; the original Land Rover prototype was in fact built on a Jeep chassis.
We have Honda motorcycles that look a lot like Harley Davidsons and Chryslers that look a bit like Bentleys.
