I certainly couldn't call him a "friend", but I can say I did know him. Our paths crossed many times over the years, which did include doing one concert with him.

As John Lennon once said, (paraphrasing here) "If you could give Rock n Roll another name, it would be Chuck Berry". Long live Chuck.
Love my Dot and my Wildkat, too, but I'm really diggin' my Casino!!!

Probably Rock 'n' Roll heaven deserves its name from now on.
Thank you, Chuck, for creating Rock 'n 'Roll.

He announced last December that he was working on a new album of new material. A player to the end...
Thank you Mr. Berry, there will never be another like you.

I guess he reached a point where he had no particular place to go. Roll over Beethoven indeed.
Did he actually complete the new album which he was talking about before Christmas? Would be nice to think there was one last record for us to hear.

He was 90.
Amen and R.I.P.
Indeed. We just heard at home today, Deb looked up his age. Always hard to see folks go but 90 or beyond is a good old age, not many that hit that number.
