Johnny B. Goode Dressed Bad

8/29/2008 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

At 81, Chuck Berry is still a style icon -- it takes a real man to fuse Western wear with Captain Stubing's hat and pair 'em with Whoopi Goldberg's shades and one of Prince's track jackets.

I second comment number 5. Chuck Berry is not an American treasure. His inflluencee on music is immeasurable. I think he looks great.

I want to correct my previous post. It contained an edit error. I meant to state that Chuck Berry IS an American treasure.

CHUCK BERRY HAS EARNED THE RIGHT TO DRESS ANY WAY HE SEES FIT! I'M A 67 YEAR OLD WHITE LADY WHO GREW UP IN THE FIFTIES AND CHUCK BERRY WAS "THE BOMB". HE AND FATS DOMINO, LITTLE RICHARD, JERRY LEE LEWIS, ELVIS, AND TOO MANY MORE TO MENTION.......THOSE WERE THE GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL DAYS AND THE BEST MUSIC. CHUCK'S MUSIC WAS FANTASTIC. I HAVE ALL HIS OLD 33 1/2 RECORDS STILL. HOPE HE MAKES IT TO 100!!!!!

Who in the world crowned Elvis Presley the king of rock and roll. I say Chuck Berry was closer to being the king than Elvis. At least Mr. Berry created and sang his own songs. Elvis sang other people's songs. Carl Perkins created and sang "Don't Step on My Blue Suede Shoes". And "You Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog" was created and sung by a Black woman.
