Chuck Berry (1926-2017)

 

A legend of Rock'n'Roll left us at the age of 90. The American guitarist, singer and songwriter from St. Louis, Missouri, was one of the pioneers of Rock'n'Roll music.

 

Any famous guitarist in Pop history, has, one day, played a riff or a solo created by Chuck Berry.

 

He has been the songwriter the most covered in the 60s during the explosion of British Rhythm'n'Blues.

 

The first song he recorded in 1955 was : Maybellene

@Soundofus Wonderful tribute and a sad day for music.

 

Hopefully it mirrors what Dr. Ford in Westworld said:

 

"Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin never died. They simply became their music."

Thanks @crematedman

 

For those interested for knowing more and see Chuck Berry on stage, I recommend the 1987 documentary : Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll

 

The documentary film directed by Taylor Hackford has been produced by Keith Richards, Chuck Berry, Stephanie Bennett and chronicles two 1986 concerts celebrating Chuck Berry's 60th birthday.

 

List of artists perfoming during this two concerts is impressive : Linda Ronstadt, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton,  Robert Cray, Etta James, Johnnie Johnson, Steve Jordan, Bobbie Keys, Julian Lennon, Joey Spampinato.
