    (CNN)Chuck Berry, a music pioneer often called "the Father of Rock 'n' Roll," was found dead Saturday at a residence outside St. Louis, police in St. Charles County said. He was 90.

    A post on the St. Charles County police Facebook page said officers responded to a medical emergency at a residence around 12:40 p.m. (1:40 p.m. ET) Saturday and found an unresponsive man inside.

    "Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26 p.m.," the post said. "The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry."

    He was 90, so his time was coming close. But it's still a sad day when a legend passes away.

    No, no. Not "I guess".

    It's a damn shame that a lot of people don't realize this. In the scheme of SRK RIP threads for celebrities, Chuck Berry is by far the most important and it's sad that he will only get 2 pages max.

    Chuck Berry obliterates the likes of; Scott Weiland, Glenn Frey, David Bowie, Whitney Houston, George Michael, Prince, Ray Manzarek, Etta James, Davy Jones, etc.

    Chuck Berry might not be as popular as Elvis or Michael Jackson, but he is more important. And for the youngsters, believe it or not, he is even more important than Wiz Khalifa and Drake!

    That Yoko Ono clip is probably one of the most famous videos of her. She still does that stupid shit, too, and she has fans.

    New York is weird.

    Yeah, I just found that out after watching the news one day. Seems like we're losing more talented people in favor of talentless hacks nowadays. :|

    The duckwalk maneuver was invented by him which I didn't know until recently.

    Many guitarists like Angus Young of ACDC uses a variant on it during some performances.

    Everyone knows Surfing USA by The Beach Boys, right?

    Now, I love The Beach Boys, but listen to Sweet Little Sixteen by Chuck Berry (a song that most people don't know). It is literally the same exact song, but with different lyrics.
