Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry has today died at the age of 90.

St. Charles County Police confirmed they responded to a 'medical emergency' at his home near St. Louis, Missouri, at 12.40pm on Saturday.

He was found unresponsive and first responders desperately tried to perform a number of lifesaving techniques.

But the Maybellene, Roll Over Beethoven and Johnny B. Goode singer could not be revived and he was pronounced dead at 1.26pm.

The untold want, by life and land ne’er granted,
Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.

Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly.
Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably,
and never regret anything that made you smile.

I thought he died 30+ years ago . Where the heck has he been
hiding ?

Forgetting all of the creepy bathroom filming stuff...he really was the one of the founders of rock and roll. Forgot how many cool tunes he gave us.

Swing low sweet chariot, come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone;
Cut your engines, cool your wings,
And let me make it to the telephone.

Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia,
Tidewater four ten O nine
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land callin'
And the poor boy's on the line.

Berry's ability to fuse elements of country and jump blues was a huge part of what made rock music. "Maybellene" (1955) was probably the first real rock and roll song. The irony is that it was his love for country music that allowed this to happen. That was not typical for black musicians of the day, and is what set him apart.
