Chuck Berry – RIP


Charles Edward AndersonChuckBerry non c’è più. “The True King of Rock’n’Roll” è morto a 90 anni (compiuti sul finire del 2016) dopo aver annunciato il suo nuovo album ‘Chuck’ (a 38 anni dall’ultimo ‘Rock It’) che sarà pubblicato via Dualtone prossimamente (nel disco figurano anche i figli Charles Berry Jr. e Ingrid Berry). Un pioniere, artista nodale, influenza totale, un padre fondatore. Berry è deceduto nella sua casa di St. Charles County nel Missouri. E ora nella testa non fanno che girare “Maybellene”, “Roll Over Beethoven”, “Rock and Roll Music” e “Johnny B. Goode”…

“if you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry” (John Lennon)

St. Charles County police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 p.m. today (Saturday, March 18). Inside the home, first responders observed an unresponsive man and immediately administered lifesaving techniques. Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26 p.m. The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry. The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.
