Someone who has popularity with more than just white audiences.
Bob Marley,Jimi Hendrix,James Brown.
As for Chuck Berry,I have never liked Johnny B Goode as a song.
Combine Chuck Berry with the Rolling Stones and you come up with a winner.

A list compiled in New Zealand would include Dave Dobbyn
Of course they would pinch our Finn Bros, Dragon and Max Merrit

Given that the quest is for a "Rock Star" ( who aren't really that thick on the ground)
'Mick Jagger' I believe would go close to qualifying.
