Legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll icon and American singer-songwriter, Chuck Berry, who defined the music’s joy and rebellion in such classics as Johnny B Goode, Sweet Little Sixteen and Roll Over Beethoven died aged 90 at his home in St. Charles County, Missouri, local police has announced.
Berry’s death was confirmed by the St. Charles Police Department who issued a statement Saturday explaining the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the musician’s body.
“The St Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry,” the police department added.
“The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”
Berry had written numerous hits including ‘Maybellene’, ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Rock and Roll Music’ and ‘Johnny B. Goode’.
Berry, in his late 20s before his first major hit, crafted lyrics that spoke to the teenagers of the day and remained fresh decades later.
Sweet Little Sixteen captured rock ‘n’ roll fandom, an early and innocent ode to the young girls later known as groupies.
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1926, Berry was instrumental in combining rhythm and blues with rock and roll.Follow @gorkhapost
