Chuck Berry (1926- ) is an African-American singer and musician who, like Little Richard and Elvis Presley, is recognized as one of the greatest influences on the evolution of rock and roll.

Chuck Berry enjoyed his greatest success in the 1950s, scoring his biggest rock and roll hit in 1958 with "Sweet Little Sixteen." By the 1960s, Berry, like many early black rock musicians, had all but disappeared from the mainstream rock music scene.
