"Long live rock and roll!" - Chuck Berry receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy in 1984.
Three of Berry's classic recordings have been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame: "Maybellene" (inducted 1988), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1990) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1999).

“This has to be perceived as an attack on the arts, and we can’t sit by. Five thousand dollars for a high school music program goes a long way. I can’t tell how many people have told me, ‘If it wasn’t for my music teacher, I wouldn’t have gone to school.’ When you talk about communities with challenges and youth that feel hopeless, arts are a saving grace. Where is there a better chance to influence someone than through music, arts, theater and literature?” — Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy points out the importance of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Chuck Berry was arguably the founding father of rock and roll. Not just because he was one of its greatest songwriters and established some of the electric guitar's earliest and most memorable riffs, but also because he was one of music's most palpably exciting entertainers and biggest personalities. His influence on the giants that followed him, such as the Beatles, Beach Boys and many others, is well documented. Chuck received a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy in 1984, our formal acknowledgment of his immeasurable contributions to American culture. He will be greatly missed, but the gift of his music will live on forever.
