Berry passed away on March 18 at the age of 90.
Berry originally released "Johnny B. Goode" in 1958, which immediately became a Top 10 hit on both the Billboard Hot R&B Sides chart (No. 2) and the Billboard Hot 100 (No. 8). Dating as far back as the "50s-the nascent days of television-those Berry performances available online are a master's class on the purest form of rock 'n" roll.
According to the St. Charles County Police Department's Facebook page, police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 on Saturday. "He will be missed but remembered by everyone who ever loved rock "n" roll".
While studios often release tribute albums of classics or unused material after an artist dies, Berry's upcoming album featuring mostly original songs was announced in October.
"Working to prepare the release of this record in recent months and in fact over the last several years brought Chuck a great sense of joy and satisfaction".
The family of the late Chuck Berry will release his last album.
Berry wrote the song in 1955, lifting the opening guitar riff pretty much verbatim from the single-note opening riff to Louis Jordan's 1946 recording "Ain't That Just Like a Woman", but adding double-stops to fatten it up. To us he was a magician making music that was exotic yet normal at the same time.
