Chuck Berry

Album: Chuck
Release Date: TBA
Rock & roll legend Chuck Berry stunned fans on his 90th birthday when he announced his first new album in 38 years. "This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy," Berry said in a statement last October, referring to his wife of 68 years, Themetta. "My darlin', I'm growing old! I've worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!" He's backed by "the Blueberry band," the same players he's performed with for two decades at his Blueberry Club in St. Louis: his children Charles Berry Jr. on guitar and Ingrid Berry on harmonica, along with pianist Robert Lohr, drummer Keith Robinson and bassist Jimmy Marsala, who's played with Berry for 40 years. According to Berry's son Charles, "These songs cover the spectrum from hard-driving rockers to soulful, thought-provoking time capsules of a life's work."
