REMEMBER THE ORIGINAL ROCK ARTIST CHUCK BERRY WITH HIS 10 GREATEST SONGS

True rock legend Chuck Berry passed away on Saturday. Berry was the undisputed father of rock and roll, and kept on killing it till the end, at work on a new album when he died at age 90.

Berry’s troubled early life included a stay in reform school for armed robbery—and other arrests would later dog his legacy—but from the time his mega-hit “Maybelline” topped the charts in 1955 he was established as one of rock and roll’s founding fathers.

Naturally the response from the world of rock was huge, with swift reactions coming from other icons acknowledging that Chuck was the man who started it all.

Mick Jagger in particular had a lot to say about Berry’s influence.
