“If you tried to give rock ‘n’ roll another name,” [John Lennon] said, “you might call it Chuck Berry.”

In the wake of Steve Jobs’ death I’ve come to understand what ‘genius’ means in a way I hadn’t considered before: it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re smarter than anyone, or that you’ve reinvented the wheel. It means that you borrowed (stole?) a little of this and a little of that, added the fruits of your imagination and produced something that, not only had no one else done, but that the world embraced.

To leave behind something that will live on long after you’re gone is true success.

‘Chuck Berry Goddamn!
