Chuck Berry dead at 90

I got quite a shock this morning when I woke up to this news about Chuck Berry’s passing at the age of 90. I still remember him doing his “duck-walk” to the strains of his famous number Johnny B. Goode. In any case, according to news reports, he was found unresponsive at lunchtime on Saturday, St Charles County police said. And can you believe it? He had a seven-decade career which boasted a string of hits. He received a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1984 and was among the first inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

Rest in peace Chuck. You had a good run. Its party time with the others in heaven who went before you.
