Chuck Berry dies

He was one of that exclusive group who took rhythm and blues from its black roots and "crossed over" to make it part of most teenagers' lifestyle.
He influenced generations of succeeding rock stars, most notably the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
Yet he faced major financial difficulties through mismanagement and had frequent brushes with the law.
 Charles Edward Anderson Berry was born into a middle-class family in St Louis, Missouri, on 18 October 1926.
