Berry once punched Keith Richards in the face for tapping him on the  shoulder, and has a reputation for being both ornery and withdrawn, but  today he isn’t either of those things. He’s gracious, in a southern sort  of way. Pleased to meet you. He shakes hands and his hands swallow up  the hands of his guest. He once was as handsome as Elvis, and he’s still  got a great face, and eyes that don’t seem so much cruel or aloof as  just kind of wry and sharp and maybe a bit amused, like he’s in on some  sort of joke.

Great article from Esquire on Chuck Berry, who’s still alive, still performing, and recording songs that he doesn’t want you to hear.
