Chuck Berry, Rock N' Roll Pioneer, Passes Away At 90

The legend that is Chuck Berry has passed away at the age of 90.

Berry, one of the first ever to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, carved the way for anybody who really encompassed the Rock N' Roll attitude. Even the Beatles, Beach Boys, and the Rolling Stones covered the musician -- that should say something for you even if you're not the most in-depth music fan.

John Lennon put it perfectly once:

“If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry,"'

“Maybellene,” “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Back in the U.S.A.” were among the long list of hits to come from the name in his 60+ year career. Chuck wont be someone forgotten any time soon.
