Sunday RnR: Chuck Berry

chuck

Yesterday (March 18th) the news came out that founding father of rock and roll, Chuck Berry, passed away at the age of 90. Berry took the elements of rhythm and blues and pushed them in a newer direction, creating the characteristics of rock and roll music as we know it. Almost every musician in rock and roll when asked about their influences don’t hesitate to top Chuck Berry near the top of that list. Whether directly influencing or influencing newer generations through their direct influences, Chuck Berry formed rock and roll in every imaginable way. I know I would be a very different musician without him. So thank you, Chuck Berry, for all you’ve done. Rest in peace.
