The music world lost another legend last night with the news that Chuck Berry had passed at the age of 90.

The “Johnny B. Goode” singer was found unresponsive by the St. Charles County Police and pronounced dead minutes later.

Music and Hollywood royalty immediately flocked to social media to pay their respects to a man who did so much for ‘n’ roll.

Mick Jagger’s message went beyond 140 characters, the Rolling Stones frontman Tweeted: “I am so sad to hear of Chuck Berry’s passing. I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us,” wrote Jagger. “He lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers. His lyrics shone above others & threw a strange light on the American dream. Chuck you were amazing & your music is engraved inside us forever.”

The estate of John Lennon Tweeted:

As did his former Beatles bandmate, Ringo Starr:

Bruce Springsteen, too:

The Beach Boys legendary frontman, Brian Wilson, also paid his respects:

As did Mick’s fellow Rolling Stone, Keith Richards:

Huey Lewis – a man who drew so much inspiration for Chuck’s style of guitar play:

Chuck Berry’s significance is evident given the music royalty that’s lined up to show him love. He was a genre-defining pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll, and he will be sadly missed by all.
