This “old-fashioned” singer and guitar player has been an inspiration for many performers around the world. From the legendary Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton, to being “portrayed” in the famous trilogy Back to the Future with his famous Johnny B Goode. Chuck Berry is a real living legend who has decided to continue be on stage performing his most successful hits he wrote himself.

Charles Edward Anderson, better known as “Chuck” Berry has an estimated net worth of $19 million. Born October 18, 1926 in St. Louis, Missouri, this songwriter and guitar player is still doing his “goose step” and planning to release a new album in 2017. His net worth is $19 million and his songs have been sung by different artists around the world who have him as an influence and one of the founders of Rock n’ Roll.

His mother, Martha, was a teacher, and his father Henry was a contractor and Baptist deacon. He was the third child of seven that this couple had. Berry started his studies at Simmons Grade School, while his High School diploma was gotten at a school for African-American students (during segregation) called Summer High School, where Tina Turner also studied.

His beginnings as a guitarist started in the 50s. During that time, Rock n’ Roll was seen badly by authorities because they thought that black music and its very particular pelvic moves were something perverted.  In 1955, he started his professional career when he traveled really often to Chicago and met Muddy Waters, who helped him to sign a contract with Chess Records.

Under that label, Chuck recorded dozens of hits that years later were interpreted by hundreds of bands and rock singers. Songs such as Roll Over Beethoven, Rock and Roll Music, Route 66, Johnny B. Goode, Maybelline and Sweet Little Sixteen are now classics of this type of music.
