Default Chuck Berry died

Sorta early Ford related!

“St. Charles County police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 p.m. today (Saturday, March 18),” the police department said in a statement. “Inside the home, first responders observed an unresponsive man and immediately administered lifesaving techniques. Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26 p.m.
“The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry.”

Sad to hear, but inevitable. He had a great 90 years.

Sad....Fond memories of Chuck. I use to love 'draggin main' in my '52 with his tunes blaring from the new rear seat speaker I installed when I was 16....

First one to sing about a safety belt but I think he was really referring to a bra hasp.

I had a friend in New Orleans many years ago with a '32 3-window coupe, a "real deal" hot rod back then that he always called "Maybelline". DD

Think I'll put on the Chuck Berry 'disc', just soon as Johnny Cash is done....
Yup, KING, for sure, as Elvis, Buddy Holley et al....were influenced and imitated him.

Rest in peace Chuck, but won't miss you, because you will be singing here for as long as things hold up !!

Sadly missed, but look for a release this summer that Chuck had recorded with Gary Clark Jr and several family member players.
