The Rolling Stones, who launched their own recording career releasing a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On" as their debut single in 1963, have paid tribute to the late rock 'n' roll legend upon hearing the news of his death. Berry passed away on Saturday (March 18) at the age of 90.
"I am so sad to hear of Chuck Berry's passing," Mick Jagger said in a statement provided by his rep. "I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us. He lit up our teenage years, and blew life into our dreams of being musicians and performers. His lyrics shone above others and threw a strange light on the American dream. Chuck, you were amazing, and your music is engraved inside us forever."
