"This piece is an example of a project that is heading in one direction and then takes sudden detour into another. That detour took place on March 18, 2017 when I received word that Charles Edward Anderson Berry (AKA Chuck Berry) passed away at the age 90. Reading rock history biographies has turned me into somewhat of a rock historian and I am often engaged in these conversations at my art shows. One of the most common topics and/or questions is “who invented rock n roll?”

My answer is always the same – in my mind it was not one man but a culmination of three extraordinary individuals, Little Richard, Elvis Presley and of course the first guitar god Chuck Berry. Chuck was one of the primary influences in many of the first British rock bands such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and was a huge hero and friend of the incomparable Keith Richards.

The original concept was too far along to paint Chuck’s actual famous red Gibson ES-355 guitar but the red hollow body with prominent F holes still made a fitting tribute. This also allowed me to incorporate the silhouette tribute concept on the tail piece." -Stickman
