The founding father of Rock n' Roll has died.

Chuck Berry has died at the age of 90. He was a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose talent was legendary.

He was born in St. Louis, MO and that is where he passed away today.

Berry had a long string of hits including "Johnny B. Goode", "Roll Over Beethoven", "My Ding A Ling", "Rock N' Roll Music" and many, many more.

During the 50's Berry and Disc Jockey Alan Freed appeared in a few films together and Berry never failed to entertain. In 1978 he was in the all time classic film "American Hot Wax" and his performance in that is a standout.

Berry was one of the men who took rock music and introduced it to an eagerly waiting American public. His talent was and will always be unmatched and his musical legacy will live on forever. Hail hail Rock n' Roll.
