  • Chuck Berry

Rock and Roll legend Chuck Berry was found unresponsive inside his home on Saturday, March 18. Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26 p.m.

Here's a photographic look at his legacy.

Berry's signature tune Johnny B. Goode sold millions and was at the forefront of the youth rebellion of the late 1950s. "He's got every Chuck Berry ever made and all his mates have, too". "Original Pure Rock "n" Roll".

"If I hadn't been here, I would have had to go out and find some live music tonight", said one local fan.

He leaves behind his wife, Toddy, who he married in 1948, and four children.

Berry was instrumental in the launching of Cleveland's own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum and the hall is remembering him there in the days after his death. "He took it from a rhythm, background instrument, and he intuitively choreographed the first great rock "n' roll stage moves. whether it was playing it behind his head, between his legs, or of course, the inimitable duck walk".

Syrian reports claim Israeli aircraft struck vehicle near border, killing driver
The Syrian army claimed it successfully shot down one Israeli plane and hit a second - a claim swiftly denied by Israel. The group is sworn to Israel's destruction, and fired thousands of rockets into Israel during a monthlong war in 2006.

The social network filled up with eulogies pegged to the passing of a certain duckwalking guitar player, of whom John Lennon once said, "If you tried to give rock "n" roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry".

"Rock band The Doors tweeted: "#RIP to one of rock "n" roll's biggest innovators and a huge influence on The Doors, Chuck Berry". True, he was its most important early architect, but by the time his debut single "Maybellene" was unleashed into the world in 1955, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino and Bill Haley & the Comets already had iconic hit singles on the Billboard charts. Berry soon realized that he would have to play for multiracial audiences, as he was booked on segregated theaters.

His music became fundamental for electric guitarists, becoming a requirement for anyone who might want to know how to play Rock and Roll.

No release date was announced and a rep for Berry and Berry's record label did not return Fox News' request for comment.

Berry was actually set to release an album in 2017.

From Johnny B Goode, arguably Berry's most famous song - even though it only reached number right - to Sweet Little Sixteen here are 10 Chuck Berry songs that chart his career and lead the way for Rock N Roll.
