    Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry has died aged 90, police in US state of Missouri report.

    The singer was found unresponsive at lunchtime on Saturday, St Charles County police said.

    Berry's seven-decade career boasted a string of hits, including classics like Roll Over Beethoven and Johnny B Goode.

    He received a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1984 and was among the first inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

    I didn't know he was still alive. It seems like he should be older than 90 but blimey he made a huge impact on music. RIP.

    RIP Chuck. What can you say about the biggest influence on the birth of rock and roll?

    Of all the music in the history of the world, one of his songs was chosen to go on the Voyager Golden Disk and be among the 90 mins to represent the sound of our planet to the universe.

    My father used to bang on about seeing him at the 1972 London Rock N Roll Show at Wembley, to me he seemed old even then!

    He was a real legend and a big influence on many musicians, especially Keith Richards.

    I would've loved to have been at the gig in ''Hail! Hail! Rock n Roll'' where Keith Richards was playing lead guitar for him. What a band that was.

    RIP Chuck.

    Also, Jimmy Page, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfit, Pete Townsend, Ted Nugent, Angus Young....the list of people that were influenced by him was
    truly amazing. Some of the overnight commentaries also mention that his diction was very clear; he did not sound like a black guy so appealed
    to teens accross the board. Was Johnny B Goode about a country boy or was it originally a coloured boy?
    A musical genius who gave birth to rock and roll if a somewhat flawed character.

    And me! I took my first lead spots armed only with a handful of Chuck Berry licks. They worked for everything I was interested in playing back then. :D

    The solo at about 1:20 is still the first thing my fingers do when I'm idling on the guitar. I use bits of it all the time.
