He was admitted 2 days ago and released today, but the febrile media are just now reporting the hospitalisation with headlines of family being called and such alarmist headlines

Interesting to me seeing how widely recognised Chuck Berry was during his lifetime. I always thought he should have been up there with Elvis but was disregarded a lot because in his early days racism was still rampant and he had a pretty shocking history of personal issues etc. Good to see that he won so many awards and was praised so highly even before his death. But I still think he's never gotten enough credit for his lyrics - absolute genius at stringing words together and coming up with hook lyrics. He crossed more boundaries than just rock n roll - there was a bit of country, a bit of blues, even a bit of rap before it was called rap. He might have been inspired by Blues guys before him but he made it accessible to the straight whites for the first time, and without him there'd be no Elvis, Beatles, Dylan, Hendrix etc. Genius.

If the links work, check out Too Much Monkey Business (in 1956!!) followed by the better known Subterranean Homesick Blues by Dylan.

Twitter is reporting Prince Philip has dropped off the perch following news of an emergency meeting called at Buckingham Palace.

Either that or news has reached there of Malcolm Turnbull considering Tony Abbott for the position of Governor General

Just talked to #BuckinghamPalace press office. No comment on reports of urgent summit. "Her Majesty and Prince Philip are alive and well."

Nah just saw it's Philip retiring.

Time to roll out some of his infamous remarks, maybe in the Do I Offend You thread.

Sadly too many humans do what he did.

Domestic Cats are probably the only other species capable of such cruelty.
