Chuck Berry ~ Inducted in the 1986 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ~ Chuck Berry is the poet laureate of rock and roll. In the mid-Fifties, he took a fledgling idiom, born out of rhythm & blues and country & western, and gave it form and identity. A true original, Berry crafted many of rock and roll’s greatest riffs and married them to lyrics that shaped the rock and roll vernacular for generations. He has written numerous rock and roll classics that have been covered by multitudes of artists and stood the test of time. In all essential ways, he understood the power of rock and roll - how it worked, what it was about and who it was for. ~ 1986 © Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
