On Saturday, 18 March, rock musician Chuck Berry died at the age of 90.
As music journalist and supervising producer of Netflix’s The Get Down, Nelson George says: “He’s one of the great American songwriters.”George spoke with Tom Power today, to discuss the legacy of Berry — both his musical innovation and his troubled personal past.

“His legacy in music is indisputable,” George states.
“But do you co-mingle the person with the art?
And that’s always a complicated question but there’s no question about how important he is.”
