Just Released: Music Legend Passes Away!
Sadly, infamous rock and roll legend Chuck Berry has passed away. The singer was 90 years old and was found unresponsive in his Missouri home.
Berry had many number one hits and received a lifetime achievement grammy in 1984 and was later inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
Some of his well-known hits include Rollover Beethoven and Johnny B. Goode. Elvis, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and the Beach Boys, to name a few, all covered Berry's hits at one time or another.
"If you tried to give rock 'n' roll another name," John Lennon once said, "you might call it 'Chuck Berry'."
His passing comes after his announcement last year saying he would be releasing a new album after nearly 40 years, which would be dedicated to his wife Themetta. The two had been married an impressive 68 years.
Berry, who had his first hit in 1955 with "Maybellene", was quite the legend and will be dearly missed by many.
Let's keep his family in our thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.
