RIP: Chuck Berry Dead at 90


Chuck Berry, often called “the Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” died Saturday at his home outside of St. Louis, Mo. Officers responded to a medical emergency at the residence around 12:40 p.m. and found an unresponsive man inside. Efforts to resuscitate him failed.

He was 90 years old.

The Rolling Stones said, “The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry. He was a true pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll and a massive influence on us. Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter. His songs will live forever.

Even though Berry was known for many hits, including, “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music,” “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “Johnny B. Goode,” “Back in the U.S.A.,” (to name only a few) AND was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, had a statue dedicated to him in St. Louis (he’s portrayed doing his famous hunched-over “duck walk”), received PEN New England’s inaugural award for Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a BMI Icon honor; and a Kennedy Center Honors Award, he remained modest about his influence saying in his autobiography, “My view remains that I do not deserve all the reward directed on my account for the accomplishments credited to the rock ‘n’ roll bank of music.” Others would surely disagree.

He will be missed by everyone. RIP Chuck.
