Chuck Berry is one of the pioneers and originators of the genre that became known as rock and roll. Berry took major elements from the genre of rhythm and blues but redefined them to develop the new sound of rock and roll. On stage, Berry was known for his showmanship in flagrant performances which included great guitar solos making him star especially when seen performing live. Berry’s songs were often about relatable topics that could garner a genuine response from his fans such as teen life and consumerism. Many musical acts have followed the blueprint and example set by Berry to create rock and roll music of their own.
The song “Maybellene” was Chuck Berry’s first hit and was released in 1955. Getting Chess records to produce that song was the breakthrough in Berry’s career, as "Maybellene" would reach number one on Billboards Rhythm and Blues charts. Berry subsequently released hit songs like "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958) which began to solidify his standing as an artist and his style of music. Those songs of the 1950s were the highlight and peak of his career, as he struggled to find much success after that, yet in that time he solidified himself among the greatest and most influential musicians of all time.
When the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame opened its doors in 1986, Chuck Berry was one of the first artists to be inducted, as he was cited for laying the groundwork for what became rock and roll. This groundwork was not just in the sound that Berry’s songs had but also his style and stance in performing them.
