I just heard it, and was on my way here to post it. You beat me to it. In my opinion there was nobody more influential to rock and roll guitar than Chuck Berry. I've always said he was the true king of rock and roll. His style influenced everyone from the Beach Boys to Elvis Presley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and many others. Including many current rock, blues, and country artists. I'm not often saddened by a celebrity death, but I am with Chuck Berry. Going to play a little guitar in his honor tonight.

I drag raced to his music in the Back country roads, got drunk to his music, even had a few fights to em. He was Rock& Roll. Gonna miss him.

Anthony, I could not agree more. There would be no rock'n'roll as we know it if not for Chuck Berry. Take away just about any Rock'n'Roll guitar hero and you would still have Chuck Berry; take away Chuck Berry and the rest disappear.

I would never have assumed he was still alive, 90 is a ripe old age. Thanks Chuck for playing such a major 'roll' in rock!

He was very much alive and kicking. He was still playing live as lately as 2014. He has a new album coming out this year.

One of the Founding Fathers of Rock and Roll. There will never be another Chuck Berry.

Saw this in Digital New York Times, was wondering if this was a real headline or Fake News from the King of Fake News and Headline Rearramgement Syndrome. God I was hoping this was the case, Rock N Roll suffered a huge loss. Berry, can't wait to jam in Heaven.

So sorry to see him go. I think the world of Elvis but Chuck Berry was the true king of rock'n'roll. R.I.P.

RIP. There's a video I've seen of him and John Lennon playing and just jamming. Then Yoko Ono starts in with some crazy bs vocals and the look Chuck Berry gives her is priceless.

Hey Tim, you hear about Yoko Ono's survivalist handbook? It's all about how she lived off of nothing but a dead Beatle for 30 years.
