Chuck Berry duck walks to the 'Promised Land' aged 90

Rock ‘n’ Roll innovator Chuck Berry has died at the age of 90.

Police in Missouri say he was found unresponsive at his home.

Chuck Berry’s hits ‘Johnny B. Goode, ‘Roll Over Beethoven,’
and ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ fused blues, rockabilly and jazz.

He was a major influence on musicians from both sides of the Atlantic such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen.

Berry’s career spanned seven-decades and he received a lifetime achievement Grammy Award in 1984 and was among the first to be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

The music world took to social media to pay tribute.
