Rest In Peace, Mr. Chuck Berry. You are truly loved and will definitely be missed.

Here is the statement from Greg Harris, President & CEO, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

Chuck Berry is rock and roll. The undisputed original poet laureate, he influenced every rock and roll artist after him and every guitarist that ever plugged in. Today, we celebrate his poetry, his artistry and his massive contributions to 20th century culture. It’s fitting that he was the first person inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Rock and roll as we know it would not exist without him. Hail Hail, Rock and Roll. Hail Hail, Chuck Berry.
