    Chuck Berry would have never happened if it hadn't been for Robert Johnson.

    Not sure what you mean a fantastic idea but can't get the a-game.
    T-Bone was a much more accomplished musician than Chuck Berry ever was. He was also very popular in his time.
    However, black musicians didn't get radio airplay on white radio stations back then.

    Even Chuck Berry had his songs covered by white singers like Pat Boone, and has been bitter about it ever since.

    It was likely the fact that Chuck's songs being stolen led white listeners back to music by him, little Richard, Bo Diddley, and others.

    The British also played a role in leading whites back to the roots of blues music.

    The Rolling Stones started out as a blues band.
    Eric Clapton was hugely influenced by Robert Johnson.

    And Jerry Lee Lewis deserves a mention for popularizing boogie woogie piano.

    So like you say, Chuck Berry deserves accolades as one of the original pioneers of Rock and Roll.

    But there is much, much, more to the story.
