2012 Awards For Lyrics Of Literary Excellence


At 90-years-old, Rock 'n' Roll guitar legend Chuck Berry was found unconscious in his St. Louis, Missouri home Saturday and pronounced dead on the scene after First Responders were unsuccessful in reviving him. Berry was known for his blend of music genres, guitar skills, as well as his duck-walk dance move. The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame said in a statement Saturday, "Chuck Berry created the rock sound and captured our thoughts, feelings  and concerns with his lyrics...It's hard to imagine rock and roll without him and fitting that he was the first person inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame."  Our condolences and prayers are with the family at this time...Chuck Berry and his iconic contribution to music, gone but never forgotten.
