Chuck Berry, a music pioneer often called the Father of Rock 'n' Roll, was found dead this Saturday.
Berry wrote and recorded many American rock & roll classics including "Johnny B. Goode" and "Sweet Little Sixteen".
"Berry took all-night hamburger stands, brown-eyed handsome men and V-8 Fords and turned them into the stuff of American poetry. By doing so, he gave rise to followers beyond number, bar-band disciples of the electric guitar, who carried his musical message to the far corners of the Earth."
Bruce Springsteen tweeted: "Chuck Berry was rock's greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock 'n' roll writer who ever lived."
