LOSS: Chuck Berry at the Legends of Rock 'n' Roll concert back in 2000
MUSIC IS mourning the death of Chuck Berry today, after reports of his death flooded in late last night.
The iconic 90-year-old singer passed away at his home in Missouri after suffering from what local police describe as a "medical emergency".
Berry secured his place in the rock 'n' roll hall of fame from as early as the 1950s with impressive guitar skills, charisma and catchy, self-penned lyrics.
Married for a whopping 69 years to Themetta, the legend leaves behind his wife and their four children, Ingrid, Melody, Aloha Isa Leigh Berry and Charles Jr.
