Founding Father of Rock 'N' Roll, Chuck Berry, Dies at 90

Speaking with ABC News a few years ago, Berry was asked to name the favorite songs he's written, but he said he couldn't choose one. He had been due to release a new album, Chuck, his first studio album since 1979, this year.

Because of Chuck Berry, Rock 'n Roll will never die.

Chuck Berry has died, the St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri has announced. First responders entered the home and reportedly found Berry unresponsive and immediately administered lifesaving techniques but the musician could not be revived. They performed CPR, but weren't able to resuscitate him and he was pronounced dead at 1:26 PM.

Berry's family requests privacy during their time of bereavement, the statement said. The Los Angeles Times notes that Wilson regularly plays Berry's songs in his live shows, even weaving "Sweet Little Sixteen" into "Surfin' USA". Among other big-screen Berry moments, Marty McFly (aka Michael J. Fox) gets into a little "Johnny B. Goode" action in 1985's "Back to the Future".

"You'll always be the Father of Rock & Roll to us, Chuck". The song is a tribute the the genre Berry loved, and was covered many times since by everyone from the Beatles to the Beach Boys.

In later years he was notorious for rolling into concerts with nothing but his guitar, playing with any old pickup band.

Bruce Springsteen also tweeted what Berry meant to him.

Chuck Berry has passed away at the age of 90.

Nikky Sixx, of Mötley Crüe, said "Without him Rock n Roll wouldn't be what it came to be" and Keith Urban, the country singer, wrote: "RIP Chuck Berry!".

"But Chuck was complicated - in fact, he was the most hard "movie star" I've even (sic) worked with", he continued.

Berry's signature duck walk was adopted by the likes of admiring bands such as The Who and AC/DC.

Although Elvis Presley was called the king of rock "n" roll, that crown would have fit just as well on Berry's own carefully sculpted pompadour.

Berry's music, and especially lyrics, struck a chord with many. "Oh yes and how to write a great (rock and roll) song".

And the Jacksons also paid tribute: "Chuck Berry merged blues & swing into the phenomenon of early rock "n" roll".
