One of the Pioneers of Rock and Roll music, Chuck Berry, passed away earlier today.
As some will remember his charming smile, heart-warming lyrics, upbeat demeanor, all will remember him of a musical innovator of his times.
The New York Times had this to say:
While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they did themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.
Berry will certainly be missed.
