The "rock and roll legend" Chuck Berry has died at the age of 90. The American guitarist, singer and songwriter's hits include Roll Over Beethoven and Johnny B. Goode, both from the 1950s, and this "pioneer" musician was an acknowledged influence on such groups as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Warm tributes have been paid (from Mick Jagger, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, et al) to Charles Edward Anderson Berry, who was born in St Louis, Missouri, on 18 October 1926 and who died on 18 March 2017.
