"Now, independent author Bruce Pegg has located Berry's friends, lawyers, business associates, and fellow musicians to illuminate a complicated life story. While sympathetic and admiring of Berry, Pegg does not paint an entirely rosy picture, placing Berry's life both within the larger African-American cultural experience and the world of mid-century American popular music. In doing so, he offers what should be the definitive portrait of one of the greatest stars of rock and roll, a story that will appeal to all fans of American popular music."--BOOK JACKET."
