Chuck Berry

Rock-and-roll legend Chuck Berry fell ill and was examined by Ambulance medics before a show on Saturday Night, declared a chicago fire official. However, a member of the crowd said that Berry slumped over amidst the show and had to go offstage for at least 20 minutes.

Fire Department spokesman Joe Roccasalva said Berry felt better and signed a release after being checked out.

Roccasalva said the confusion arose because emergency personnel later responded to a patron at the show who was unwell. Berry, 84, is known for his classic songs including "Maybelline," "Johnny B. Goode," and "Roll Over Beethoven." His agent Dick Alen said he had no information on the matter. Concertgoer Steve Handwerker said Berry was giving an erratic, out-of-tune performance.

So a worrying display from the aged pioneer of rock n' roll and here's hoping there isn't anything more sinister for him to deal with.
