On March 18th, the American music canon lost one of its greatest contributors. Chuck Berry defined Rock n’ Roll and he paved the way for legendary groups and artists like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and John Lennon. The music world lost a heart of style, personality and talent with the end of Berry’s prolific life — he died at the age of 90 after his last public performance just 9 years prior. Since his passing, the music world, as well as mainstream news platforms, have honored Berry’s legacy with equal fervor. Time Magazine wrote, “ While Elvis Presley gave rock its libidinous, hip-shaking image, Berry was the auteur, setting the template for a new sound and way of life.” Bruce Springsteen tweeted, “Chuck Berry was rock’s greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock ‘n’ roll writer who ever lived.” John Lennon said, “if you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.’” Berry duck walked into history and will stay there until the music stops.
