Chuck Berry announces first album in 38 years
Rock and roll progenitor Chuck Berry turns 90 today (happy birthday Chuck!) and in celebration of that, he announced his first album in 38 years! It's called CHUCK and it comes out in 2017 on Dualtone Records. The album will be "comprised primarily of new, original songs written, recorded and produced" by Chuck himself.
The backing band for the album is his "longtime hometown backing group - including his children Charles Berry Jr. (guitar) and Ingrid Berry (harmonica), plus Jimmy Marsala (Berry's bassist of forty years), Robert Lohr (piano), and Keith Robinson (drums) - which has supported him for over two decades on over two hundred residency shows at the famed Blueberry Hill club."
