Original Black Sabbath drummer payed his tribute to the “father of rock n’ roll”, Chuck Berry, who died on Saturday, March 18th.

On a Facebook post, Bill wrote the following (via Blabbermouth):
"When my grandchildren ask, what was rock 'n' roll? I will open my scrapbook to a time when a guitarist, singer and songwriter played and influenced untold thousands of musicians. Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, I would hold on to his coattails while he illuminated a reachable path to my wildest dreams. I'll show my grandchildren a picture of this suited up man dancing and playing on one leg and strutting across the stage. I'll play the first 30 seconds or so of 'Johnny B Goode'. That's what rock 'n' roll looks and sounds like, kids. And when they ask who this man is, I'll tell them, smiling, Chuck Berry, kids, Chuck Berry.
Thanks, and RIP, Mr. Berry.
Our condolences to his family and fans."

This was only one of the numerous tributes payed to Chuck Berry over the last couple of days.
