Rock Icon Chuck Berry Passes Away At 90

Rock-n-roll innovator and icon Chuck Berry has passed away at 90.

Famous for “Johnny B. Goode”, “Maybelline” and “Roll Over Beethoven” Berry took Rhythm and Blues and turned it into Rock-n-Roll. His stage presence and guitar playing paved the way for Elvis and every other rock performer.

Berry’s legacy can’t be understated. He is the Godfather of Rock-n-Roll. He was even still playing well into his late 80s.

Musicians and celebrities paid tribute to the icon on Twitter:


RIP Chuck, you’ll be missed. Thank you for your music.
