Another legendary artist found dead at his home, this is heartbreaking.
He was a Rock N’ Roll legend since the beginning and was a pioneer for all musicians to follow. Chuck Berry was found dead in his home at age 90.
The Missouri St. Charles County Police Department confirmed the news after posting about the death on their Facebook page. Apparently Berry passed away in his home which is near Wentzville, Mo.
The department stated that they were responding to a medical emergency and after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful he was declared dead. They spoke with the family and said that they are requesting privacy during this heartbreaking time.
“#SCCPDNEWS: St. Charles County police responded to a medical emergency on Buckner Road at approximately 12:40 p.m. today (Saturday, March 18). 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.
The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”
New York times shared that Mr. Berry was Rock and Roll’s “master theorist and conceptual genius.” Many say that he knew what the people wanted to hear before they even knew it themselves.
Berry was a sensation for many years and his guitar licks were dreamy. In his later years Berry didn’t release much new music but he did announce on his 90th birthday (October 18, 2016) that he was going to release his first studio album in almost 40 years.
The album “Chuck” is set to release in June and no announcements have been made wether they will still release it or not. Please keep this family in your prayers, I can’t imagine the devastation they must be feeling.
RIP CHUCK BERRY.
