Rock ‘n’ Roll pioneer Chuck Berry passed away this weekend at his home in St. Charles, Missouri. Berry, know for his amazing guitar solos, excessive showmanship, and lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism, was a leader in crafting the rock n roll music genre in the 1950’s. The new album he was working on last fall will be released soon. He was 90 years old.
