Opening paragraphs................

 The Human Riff was actually explaining to me about the synthesis of hillbilly and black music that customized the recipe for rock 'n' roll, putting a match to the kindling for the nascent Rolling Stones and the generation of hopeful oiks they represented.  But that payoff line has always felt like a playfully succinct overview of the man who sat behind him for 58 years.  In parallel timeline, you could imagine Wolfgang Amadeus looking up to Charlie Watts.  Everyone else did.
