Sad to hear of the death of Chuck Berry at age 90, but still playing gigs right up to the end. You have to say that Chuck was the  most influential musician at the start of Rock 'n' roll era. Certainly British pop stars who came up at the end of the 50s and in the early 60s, such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, have all said that he was the guiding light.
