Rock, hip-hop and country artists alike are mourning the loss of rock 'n' roll pioneer Chuck Berry, who passed away at the age of 90 on Saturday (March 18).
The legendary singer/songwriter's revolutionary sound and hits like “Maybellene,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Memphis,” “My Ding-a-Ling," “Sweet Little Sixteen" and “Johnny B. Goode” inspired many, and had a profound impact on the Billboardcharts.
The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Slash, Questlove, Lenny Kravitz, Keith Urban, Bruno Mars and more paid tribute to a musical hero on social media. See their messages below.

The Rolling Stones are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry. He was a true pioneer of rock'n'roll & a massive influence.
Chuck Berry was rock's greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock 'n' roll writer who ever lived.
