R.I.P. Chuck Berry (1926-2017)

Terribly sad news in the music industry. (Heard about it a couple of hours after yesterday.)

Rock 'n roll musician and legend Chuck Berry has died. :(

Rock 'n Roll Legend Chuck Berry Dies at 90

Chuck Berry, Rock 'n' Roll Pioneer, Dead at 90

I've been listening to rock 'n roll for most of my life, to be honest, and this news was both saddening and shocking to me for various reasons that I'm not going into here. Chuck Berry was one of, if not, rock's greatest practitioners, guitarists, and the best pure rock 'n roll writer who ever lived. He's going to be sorely missed.

Here's the iconic song from 1958.



*sigh*
