Chuck Berry, one of the pioneers of rock n’ roll, died on Saturday at his home in St. Charles, Missouri. He was ’90. His guitar style and brash wit, as heard on classics like “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Johnny B. Goode,” “”Maybellene” and “Sweet Little Sixteen,” helped define the sound of the burgeoning genre in the late ’50s. His flashy look, not to mention his patented “duck walk” and other stage moves, made no small impact either. A huge influence on The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others, Berry was one of the greats and pop music would not have been the same without him.
Chuck, you will be missed but your music and spirit lives on. Rest in peace. Watch some classic Chuck Berry
