The star of the rock, Chuck Berry, died at the age of 90

Chuck Berry was the author of the greatest music of the rock’n’roll. He is considered one of the founders of the genre. He left us on Saturday, March 18, at the age of 90. 

The legend has left behind him many fans in mourning, but also a dark side of his life, unknown to the general  public. 

Bruce Springsteen paid tribute on Twitter to the one he  designated as the rock giant. 

“Chuck Berry was rock’s greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock’n’roll writer who ever lived.”

On their Facebook accounts, the Rolling Stones paid homage to the singer with an iconic black and white image. 

“The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry. He was a true pioneer of rock’n’roll and a massive influence on us. Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter. His song will live forever.” 

Beyond the rock, many American celebrities have also shared their admiration for the great musician. The American writer Stephen King recognizes :

“This breaks my heart, but 90 years old ain’t bad for rock and roll.”
