Chuck Berry


Born - 18 October 1926, St Louis, Missouri, USA
Died - 18 March 2017

Lanky, narrow-faced, rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues legend with wisp of a moustache and shock of hair. Noted for his antics crossing the stage - his famous 'duck walk' among them - his career was marred by several brushes with the law, but he continued to hold concerts into his eighties. There were a number of film appearances too, often as himself: Rock Rock Rock! (1956), This Could Be the Night (1957), Mister Rock and Roll (1957), Go, Johnny, Go! (1959), Jazz on a Summer's Day (1960), Keep On Rockin' (1969), Alice in the Cities (1974), American Hot Wax (1978), Class Reunion (1982), Chuck Berry Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987), Bluesland (1993) and Der Goldene Kamera (2008), his last. Married for 68 years, he had four children.
