Sweet Little Sixteen

  

by Chuck Berry

Video & Audio

"Sweet Little Sixteen" Live in 1958

You can really hear the mix of blues and country into early rock n' roll here. You can also see young white people dancing in the audience towards the end of the video—a big deal for 1958.

Chuck Berry on Johnny Carson, ca. late 1980s

A couple of great live performances and some Berry silliness. Chuck does the duckwalk, and then confuses a rubber chicken with a duck.
