Rock 'n' Roll Pioneer Chuck Berry Dies at Age 90

One of rock 'n' roll music's early icons has passed away.  Chuck Berry died Saturday at his home in Missouri at the age of 90.  Berry was known as the father of rock 'n' roll.  His music transcended generations with songs like "Johnny B. Goode," "Good Morning America," "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Rock 'N Roll Music," and "Sweet Little Sixteen."  Ironically, Berry's only number one pop single was his 1972 song, "My Ding-a-Ling."  He was also the first musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
