Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry is recovering at home in St. Louis, after falling ill during a concert in Chicago on Saturday. 

The 84-year-old musician reportedly slumped over in the midst of his performance, and was promptly removed from the stage to be examined by paramedics, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I had to lay my head down on the piano," the rock legend told the crowd after getting checked out by a doctor. "I had no strength at all."

While Berry was not able to complete the concert at the Congress Theater, he did walk back onstage to thank fans. He left the venue shortly thereafter on his own and was not taken to a hospital. 

An assistant to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told ABC News he was "feeling well" Sunday morning.
