They should put that on the gravestone.
Seems very fitting. Thought I was going a bit nuts. When Starry posted the lyrics to Johnny B. Goode I looked them up and nowhere were the lines "Bye Bye Johnny, Goodbye Johnny B. Goode", even though they were ringing in my ears. Then I remembered that the song had a sequel:

The other one that seems quite fitting for the day that's in it (without wishing to cause any controversy over belief systems) is this one. So many recorded it, but it was Berry's song:

Chuck created the guitar riffs that everyone else used. A great showman. A tireless performer. He invented the duck walk.
