Musical stars are paying tribute to Chuck Berry after the influential performer died aged 90.
US singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen said he was “the greatest pure rock ‘n’ roll writer who ever lived”.
Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones said Berry “lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers”.
The guitarist and songwriter died Saturday in the US state of Missouri after a seven-decade career.
Seen as one of the fathers of rock ‘n’ roll, he influenced generations of succeeding musicians, most notably The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
