Legendary singer Chuck Berry has died, having spent many of his 90 years belting out hits he wrote and performed for his legion of fans. Unsurprisingly, he was among the first group of performers inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
His 1958 hit “Johnny B. Goode” is the only rock and roll song included on the so-called “Golden Record” affixed to the Voyager spacecraft that was launched into space in 1977.
UPDATE: Have some remembrances, here.
