Chuck Berry RIP 1926-2017

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

Chuck Berry has passed away. He died today at around 1PM Central time. Many people say that Chuck Berry was the true innovator of Rock and Roll. So many of the tunes that stick in peoples minds as the roots of Rock and Roll music were written by Chuck Berry.

Just to name a few of the songs he penned include Johnny B. Goode, Maybellene, No Particular Place to go, Roll Over Beethoven, Reelin' and Rockin, Little Queenie, Back in the USA and the list goes on and on.

Chuck Berry became famous in the mid 1950's but the lime light was taken by Elvis and also due to the fact that Chuck Berry had serious legal issues that tarnished his image. RIP Chuck Berry. Your music will live on forever 

Johnny B. Goode

Roll Over Beethoven


Reelin and Rockin


Back in the USA

What a showman Chuck Berry was. He did lead a interesting life and had many scrapes with the law, but his music pushed past all that! RIP!

Growing up in the 50's and seeing him as well as Little Richard on Bandstand set me on a rock and roll Odyssey.

Noah- if you read some of the interviews of early Rock n Rollers, they credited Chuck Berry as their inspiration.  What a gift he gave us.

Noah Seidenberg - Within minutes after hearing the news when it was first announced, I was also sad. All I kept thinking of was, "the day, the music died." He was such a large piece of our American Pie!

What astonished me the most was that he was born the same year my mother was born. Never, in a million years would I have guessed they were the same age. Chuck Berry stayed forever young to all generations!
