RIP Chuck Berry

he was 90.

maybe more than anyone else, he could claim to be the guy who started rock and roll.

saw a comment on reddit that it's crazy the guy who founded rock was still alive in 2017, given how many other great rock musicians have come and gone since then.

his song Johnny B. Goode was included on the Voyager golden record, and in the unlikely event it's ever discovered by an alien species, he'll probably go on to found rock and roll in not one, but TWO separate species.
