RIP. I only got to work with him once, but it was in Copenhagen. Brought his double Showman amp rig from England, he took his cash in advance, and played for about 100 corporate award winners in a very small hotel ballroom.
The producer cringed when he sang My Ding-a-ling, but the rest of us loved it.
"My Ding-a-ling" was fairly tame compared to some of his other lyrics:
"we boogied in the kitchen,
we boogied in the hall
I got some on my fingers
so I wiped it on the wall"
Looked up my one gig with CB, it was 25 years ago, also a corporate gig, using a local Rochester, Minnesota back up band.
I'll cherish the board recording and the autograph in his autobiography until we meet again at the big jam, where ever it may be...
He was the one and only artist I ever solicited an autograph from, he practically invented rock and roll, and still could do the "duck walk" just like he did when he was young, at age 65.
His last album was either released recently, or was scheduled for release soon, in either case, I suspect he'll be "Chuck-ling" at the $$ coming in, he loved that long green and young ladies ;^)
