CHUCK BERRY, Rock and Roll Pioneer Dies at 90

One of the true founders and pioneers of rock and roll, Chuck Berry, has died at age 90. His influence on the Beatles, Beach Boys, Johnny Rivers and the Rolling Stones is immeasurable. Just scratching the surface, he gave us “Maybellene,” “Rock and Roll Music,” “Roll over Beethoven,” “Little Queenie,” “Carol,” “School Day,” “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Never Can Tell,” “Reeling & Rocking,” “No Particular Place to Go,” “Promised Land,” “Nadine,” “Almost Grown,” and “My Ding a Ling.” He told great stories in his compositions. At the time of his passing, he was finishing up his first album in 38 years. It is to be called simply Chuck, and will be released posthumously. Beach Radio’s Bob O’Brien worked with Chuck twice while Bob was a member of the Duprees in the 1980s.
