write-up and incredible once-in-a-lifetime photo (by Rick Friedman) of Chuck and Leonard. And there's this:
"In an email read by organizer Bill Flanagan, Bob Dylan called Berry 'the Shakespeare of rock & roll' and Cohen 'the Kafka of the blues.' Cohen, accepting his award, compared Berry's 'Roll Over Beethoven' to Walt Whitman's joyful noise – his 'barbaric yawp...If Beethoven hadn't rolled over,' he said, 'there'd be no room for any of us.'" Don't miss the photo gallery, with Keith Richards in the mix.
