Celebrities pay tribute to Chuck Berry
CHUCK BERRY died on Saturday at the age of 90. He was a rock ‘n’ roll pioneer who was best known for songs like “Roll Over Beethoven” and “Johnny B. Goode”, and for influencing The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
Many in the music industry who have been influenced by his work and sound — plus those from movies and TV — were quick to pay tribute to Berry via social media.
Chuck Berry was rock's greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock 'n' roll writer who ever lived.
