You see, Chuck usually hits the stage runnin', and does a couple of real fast, hot numbers to get the audience going. This night, he came on stage and played a slow blues for five minutes. He just stood there-- staring out at the audience.
It seems that the Internal Revenue Service had just visited him back stage.
They made Chuck fork over $7,000 before he went on.
Chuck shared his loss with the audience without ever telling them what had befallen him. Then he cut into "Johnny B. Goode".
He did a smokin' show that night...
