Paul McCartney paid tribute to Chuck Berry, who died this weekend at age 90, in a tweet posted Monday morning.
“He was one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest poets,” McCartney said. “He will be missed but remembered by everyone who ever loved rock ‘n’ roll.”
The acclaimed musician was a hugely influential presence in the music scene, and multiple stars have covered his songs over the years. McCartney previously released a solo cover of “Brown Eyed Handsome Man” in 1999 and a rendition of “Roll Over Beethoven” with the Beatles in 1963. (Check out more covers of Berry classics here .)
