Chuck Berry Legendary Singer and Guitarist Dies At 90

Chuck Berry Legendary Singer and Guitarist Dies At 90

The legendary musician, often referred to as the father of rock "n" roll, was found unresponsive in his home outside St. Louis on Saturday, according to CNN.

Berry is widely viewed as among the most influential artists on rock "n" roll with hits like Johnny B Goode, Never Can Tell, and Roll Over Beethoven. "And peace and love Chuck Berry Mr. rock "n" roll music".

Police responded to a medical emergency at a home in the area, which lies in the east of Missouri state near the city of St. Louis.

He was declared dead after lifesaving measures couldn't revive the musician, police said. "The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement". As Marty and The Starlighters performed this literally ahead-of-its-time song, injured guitarist Marvin Berry called his "cousin" and got him in on the ground level of that new sound that he himself had already invented.

The "Johnny B. Goode" musician recorded the project in his native St. Louis with his longtime backing group, which includes his children Charles Berry Jr. and Ingrid Berry.

"Chuck Berry is rock and roll".

It's even more incredible that we don't have a trailer (pssst: that may not be the case for much longer). But, we finally have the first look poster for the film.

Both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones covered Berry's songs, as did The Beach Boys and scores of other acts - including Elvis.

"If you tried to give rock "n" roll another name", Lennon once said, "you might call it "Chuck Berry". - Rock & Roll Hall of Fame CEO Greg Harris.

On his 90th birthday, Berry announced he was releasing his first LP in 38 years, slated for release in 2017.

After contacting Leonard Chess, of Chess Record, they went on to work together and he recorded Maybellene, an adaptation of the country song Ida Red, which sold over a million copies. Seeing Chuck Berry duck walk - skipping across the stage in a half-crouch while playing his guitar - for the first time is as unforgettable as his music is forever familiar and omnipresent.

The Jacksons said: "Chuck Berry merged blues & swing into the phenomenon of early rock "n" roll". "Rock and Roll grieves tonight as our hero Chuck Berry steps into the next world".

Bon Jovi played Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" as a tribute to the music legend during the band's show, Saturday, March 18 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
