Little Richard calls Chuck Berry's death a 'great loss'


MACON, Ga. -- Chuck Berry was a great inspiration for many artists and helped define what we call Rock 'n' Roll.

WGXA spoke with Little Richard, a music legend and Macon native who toured with Berry. He said Berry was like his brother and his death is a great loss.

"I talked to him a few days ago," Little Richard said. "We all loved Chuck. We all loved him. It's a great loss. But we know that God is over all of us."

Berry was found unresponsive in his Missouri home on Saturday.

Little Richard turns 85 this year.
