On This Day March 31st in Rock & Roll History

On this day March 31,1958 a Rock and Roll anthem is released but it took a lyric change to make it one great classic. The line originally read “There lived a colored boy named Johnny B Goode.” The line you hear on Chuck Berry’s record is “There lived a country boy named Johnny B Goode.” The original 45 on Chess records can fetch $40.00. The 78 version is worth up to $200.00 today.
