Rock ‘N’ Roll Legend Chuck Berry Dies At The Age Of 90 Yesterday, the music world was rocked by the news that Chuck Berry, often deemed by many as the founder of rock and roll, had died at the age of 90.The sad news was confirmed in a statement released by St Charles County Police in Missouri which said:“The police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12.40pm on Saturday. Inside the home, first responders observed an unresponsive man and immediately administered lifesaving techniques. Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1.26pm. The St Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry. The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”Berry was born on October 18th 1926 in St. Louis and grew up surrounded by gospel, rhythm, blues and country music and before wowing the world with his musical gifts in the 1950’s, earned a degree in hairdressing and cosmetology. His first big hit “Maybellene” reached number 5 on the Billboard pop chart.His music career spanned seven decades and saw him release classic hits including “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Johnny B. Goode”, the latter being an instantly recognisable song film fans will remember fondly as being jammed to by Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in Back To The Future.The star was also the recipient of the lifetime achievement Grammy in 1984 and was among the first artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.Tributes from fellow musicians and music fans around the world continue to pour in for Berry, and you can read just a small selection of them below.Game changer, rock n roll poet, guitar master: RIP Chuck Berry— Tom Jones (@RealSirTomJones) March 19, 2017Rest In Peace, Chuck Berry.
