I'm just hearing this, 90 years young. He was a pioneer.

They're all going. RIP Chuck. Rock and roll wouldn't have been the same without him.

Damn.

For a long time my sig on guitar forums was a line from Bob Seger's Rock and Roll Never Forgets - "all of Chuck's children are out there playing his licks".

One of those guys who makes you realize what blues-rock can do. When someone learns guitar, they learn Chuck's licks. It's basically mandatory.

Rest in power.

I know, there are stories of his difficult personality, but he was an artist and a living legend. Remember the effect the first time you heard Maybellene, Nadine, You Never Can Tell, No Particular Place To Go, Little Queenie, Johnny B. Goode, Brown Eyed Handsome Man? The man was a poet.

The man was a poet.

My Dad passed away in January and today myself, my Mum, and my brother did the family thing on what would have been his 83rd birthday, the first since he passed away.

Hearing that Chuck died made a sad day even sadder.

HIs influence was massive and Rock and Roll wouldn't have been the same without him. As John Lennon once said, "If you had to give Rock and Roll another name you might call it 'Chuck Berry'." Even though he lived to 90 it's still a sad day. R.I.P. Mr. Berry.
