Legendary Rocker Chuck Berry

Rock ‘n’ roll legend dies at 90

Chuck Berry, rock ‘n’ roll’s founding guitar hero and storyteller who defined the music’s joy and rebellion in such classics as “Johnny B. Goode,” ”Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” died Saturday at his home west of St. Louis. He was 90.

 

Paramedics were summoned to Berry’s home by his caretaker early Saturday afternoon. They found him unresponsive and the police in St. Charles County said attempts to revive the legendary early rocker failed. Chuck Berry was pronounced dead shortly before 1:30 p.m. according to the police statement.

Berry’s influence on many early rock music stars would be hard to deny. Many famous groups in the late 50s and throughout the 60s would say they got interested in the songs that Chuck Berry made famous. His core group was some three dozen songs,and many were 'covered' by others including the Beatles. “Just let me hear some of that rock ‘n’ roll music any old way you use it I am playing I’m talking about you. God bless Chuck Berry Chuck,” Beatles drummer Ringo Starr tweeted, quoting some lyrics from a Berry hit.
