Chuck Berry
Artist Name

Rock and roll was invented by American singer, guitarist, and songwriter Charles Edward Anderson Berry. With songs like "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957), and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958), the man dubbed the "Father of Rock and Roll" honed and developed rhythm and blues into the key components that gave the genre its distinctive sound.

Berry had a significant impact on later rock music by penning lyrics about consumerism and teen life and creating a musical style that featured guitar solos and theatrics.
