Time Magazine's All-TIME 100 songs - the most extraordinary English language popular recordings, included Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode".

He had such a huge impact on music that John Lennon once said, "If you had tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'".

Tim Riley, professor of journalism at Emerson College, Boston-based music critic, and author of "Lennon: Man, Myth, Music". He died of natural causes and TMZ reported March 2o that his personal doctor will sign off with that being the cause of death and there will be no autopsy.

Authorities in St. Charles County, M.O. responded to a medical emergency at Berry's home at around 12:40 p.m. on Saturday, where they found Berry unconscious. The significance of "Johnny B. Goode" was acknowledged when the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 for its influence as a rock and roll single.

The statement continued, "For months now plans have been in place, and preparations have been made with our friends at Dualtone Records, to reveal further details and music from the album this week". Attempts to resuscitate the 90-year-old legend were unsuccessful. Working on the album had given the musician a great deal of joy since he announced it last October on his 90th birthday, they shared in their message. His last new studio album, "Rock It", was released in 1979.

They wrote: "Chuck Berry merged blues & swing into the phenomenon of early rock'n'roll". The tone of the post makes it sound like the album itself could be coming any day now, but we'll know more about it pretty soon either way. We'll miss you, Chuck.
