First, the original, one of Chuck Berry’s greatest tunes:

It always amazes me how short that song is.  Chuck was nothing if not economical.

Here’s a fantastic live cover from the Stones, from a show they did in front of a small live audience just before the release of Sticky Fingers.

Nobody channels Chuck Berry’s guitar licks better than Keef.

Finally, and speaking of channeling Chuck Berry, here’s Bob Seger’s blistering version:

I love ’em all.  And your vote goes to?

    Y’all know I love the Stones, but the others are better in this case.

    Bob includes a snippet of “Little Queenie” in the Live Bullet version.

    Thanks for the Stones’ cover of Chuck’s “Don’t Lie To Me” in the other thread.
