    The word “legend” is rather overused for musicians, but is fully justified in the case of Chuck Berry, who died on Saturday at the age of 90.

    He is referred to as "the Father of Rock 'n' Roll", because as a top song writer and guitarist, he merged blues and swing into the phenomenon of early rock’n’roll.

    He recorded some of his most famous hits in the 1950s, including Rock & Roll Music, Roll Over Beethoven, Johnny B Goode, Maybellene, No Particular Place to Go and School Days.

    Among others, he influenced the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys and Bob Dylan.

    R.I.P.

    A living legend now really rests. Precursor of my beloved music genre: heavy metal.
