Members Of GUNS N' ROSES, AEROSMITH, KISS, MÖTLEY CRÜE, JUDAS PRIEST, Others React To Passing Of CHUCK BERRY

Members of GUNS N’ ROSES, AEROSMITH, KISS, MÖTLEY CRÜE, TWISTED SISTER and JUDAS PRIEST are among the rock musicians and scores of other artists who reacted on social media to the passing of Chuck Berry, a music pioneer often called “the Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” who died Saturday at his home outside St. Louis. He was 90 years old. Berry‘s death was confirmed by the St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri.

Officers responded to a medical emergency at Berry‘s home near Wentzville, Missouri, about 45 miles west of St. Louis, around 12:40 p.m. Saturday and found an unresponsive man inside. He was declared dead shortly before 1:30 p.m. after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.

“St. Charles County police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 p.m. today (Saturday, March 18),” the police department said in a statement. “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 1:26 p.m.

“The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry.”

Berry, who influenced the likes of THE ROLLING STONES and THE BEATLES, announced last year he would release his first album in nearly four decades in 2017. He said the disc would be dedicated to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry. “My darlin’, I’m growing old!” he said at the time. “I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”

Titled “Chuck”, album will now reportedly be released posthumously. It will be the legend’s first studio album since 1979’s “Rock It”.

Berry was one of the first people to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame back in 1986 and he received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1984.

Hail Hail Rock and Roll! #ripchuckberry
