Chuck Berry, (AP) – Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry felt ill and was verified by medical ambulance to a show Saturday night, a Chicago fire official said. An audience member at the show, however, said Berry collapsed on during the show and was off stage for at least 20 minutes. Fire Department spokesman Joe Roccasalva said Berry felt better and has signed a release after being verified. Roccasalva said the confusion arose later, emergency personnel responded to a boss in the exhibition that was sick.

Berry, 84, is known for his classic songs including “Maybelline,””Johnny B. Goode “and” Roll over Beethoven. ”

Dick Alen his agent said he had no information on the issue.

Music lover Steve Handwerker said Berry gave an erratic, off-tune performance. While sitting at the keyboard, Handwerker said, Berry fell on the first face and she was helped backstage. He said he went outside and saw an ambulance at the back of the theater, but ran inside when he heard the crowd roar remaining.

Berry, still in his costume performance, stood unaided and appeared alert, Handwerker said. He said Berry thanked the crowd, said doctors put a blood pressure cuff, and stroked his chest.

Saying he wanted to give the fans what they wanted, Berry took a step or two from what he called his “scoop heel” move and was helped backstage. Handwerker said he later saw Berry into a white limousine and car of the room.
