Chuck Berry dies

Postby paulmack » Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:28 pm

The singer was found unresponsive at lunchtime on Saturday, St Charles County police said.

Berry's seven-decade career boasted a string of hits, including classics like Roll Over Beethoven and Johnny B Goode.

He received a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1984 and was among the first inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

Another legend drifts off in to the GREAT ROCK N ROLL archives in memories that live on forever in song...

Good stuff Mr Chuck Berry and thanks for the music. :D

You created it and everyone else followed what you started.

Ditto all lovely comments. He was 90 years old, truly amazing stamina they had back in the old days. Never forgotten T.S

John Lennon said
"if you tried to give rock and roll another name you might call it "Chuck Berry".

Farewell to the man who gave so much to the music we love so much. Thankfully his music lives on.

"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.

Nice one Keith.

Another clip in tribute - enjoy one of the best movie dance scenes in recent years.
