Chuck Berry has died age 90. St. Charles County, Missouri police responded to a medical emergency at a home where they found the legendary guitarist unresponsive. They administered lifesaving techniques but sadly were unable to revive him.

The rock pioneer recorded hits like "Johnny B. Goode," "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Maybellene." His work influenced everyone from The Beatles to The Rolling Stones to The Beach Boys and many others. He was rightfully one of the first performers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

Chuck also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Kennedy Center Honors and Sweden's prestigious Polar Music Prize.

On his 90th birthday in October, Chuck announced plans to release an album in 2017, his first in 38 years. No word on if it will still hit shelves. 

Chuck played music until the end of his life, performing gigs at his hometown club BlueBerry Hill in St. Louis, and also took the stage at festivals across the globe. 

He leaves behind his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry and four children.

Many musicians' Twitter accounts now include tributes to Berry:
