This morning for Today in Music History, we highlighted Chuck Berry who was born today in 1926 and died this past March at the age of 90.

One of the pioneers of rock & roll music, Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its opening in 1986, with the comment that he "laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance."
