Rock legend Chuck Berry dies at 90

Rock legend Chuck Berry has died at the age of 90. Police in Missouri confirmed that the musician passed away in a statement posted to their Facebook page.

They said they responded to an emergency at a Buckner Road property on Saturday afternoon where Berry was found unresponsive.

“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 1.26pm. The St Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr. better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry. The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”

He was best known for such songs as You Never Can Tell, Johnny B. Goode and Roll Over Beethoven.

He was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1986 and was set to release Chuck, his first album since Rock It in 1979, this year.

Announcing Chuck, he dedicated it to his wife of 58 years Themetta and hinted that it may be his last.

He said last year: “My darlin’ I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”

Born Charles Edward Anderson Berry in 1926, his career spanned 70 years and influenced the likes of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Berry leaves behind four children: Darlin Ingrid Berry, Aloha Berry, Charles Berry Jr. and Melody Exes Berry-Eskridge.


“Rock And Roll Music”


Just let me hear some of that

Rock And Roll Music,

Any old way you choose it;

It’s got a back beat, you can’t lose it,

Any old time you use it.

It’s gotta be Rock And Roll Music,

If you want to dance with me,

If you want to dance with me.


I’ve got no kick against modern jazz,

Unless they try to play it too darn fast;

And change the beauty of the melody,

Until they sounded like a symphony,

That’s why I go for that

Rock And Roll Music …


I took my loved one over cross the tracks

So she can hear my man a wailin’ sax,

I must admit the have a rockin’ band,

Man they were blowin‘ like a hurricane

That’s why I go for that

Rock and Roll music …..


Way down South they gave a jubilee,

The jockey folks they had a jamboree,

They’re drinkin’ homebrew from a wooden cup,

The folks dancin’ they all got shook up

And started playin’ that

Rock and Roll music ….


Don’t care to hear ’em play a tango,

I’m in the mood to dig a mambo;

It’s way to early for a congo,

So keep a rockin’ that piano

So I can hear some of that

Rock And Roll Music …


to confirm


to pass away





ingerekre nem reagált

to observe


to administer life saving techniques

életmentő technikákat bevetni, újraéleszteni

to be revived

feléleszteni, újraéleszteni

to be pronounced deceased

halotnak nyilvánítani



to be inducted into

felvenni, beiktatni valahová

to have a kick against something

ódzkodni, idegenkedni valamitől


hacsak nem

too darn fast

túlságosan gyorsan

to blow

fújni, süvíteni


jubileum, évforduló


házilag főzött szeszes ital
