Legendary Rock'n'Roll icon Chuck Berry dies at 90


Chuck Berry, the legendary rock 'n' roll musician who was a founding father of the genre, was found dead Saturday at his home in the U.S. state of Missouri, police said. He was 90, APA reports quoting Reuters. 

 

The St. Charles County Police Department confirmed Berry’s death on its Facebook page. Authorities said said they “responded to a medical emergency” at approximately 12:40 p.m. local time (1740GMT) but “unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26 p.m”.

 

Berry was born in St Louis, Missouri, in 1926, and had a Top 10 hit in 1955 with the song, Maybellene.

 

The pioneering guitarist recorded a string of other hit singles, including Johnny B. Goode, Roll Over Beethoven and Sweet Little Sixteen, and he received a lifetime achievement Grammy award in 1984.
