    John Lennon once said "if rock and roll had another name it would surely be called Chuck Berry".

    love Lennon's quote
    a very nice tribute line

    what a loss
    so many hits
    hard to believe his only #1 was the ding a ling thing

    this one seems appropriate
    he has met the promised land

    Chuck wrote Promised Land whilst incarcerated for assaulting his manager with a baseball bat for misappropriating his money...LOL!

    just heard on the Charlie Rose show that Chuck has a new album in the can
    recorded just last year
    should be released soon to capitalize
    will be interesting, last studio album was 1979

    His only #1 My Ding a Ling recorded live was all over the airwaves up here in '72! I hated it to bits!

    album was originally meant to be released in January according to reports towards the end of 2016:
    not sure why it wasn't released then???
    I wouldn't expect much from it, but i'd still give it a listen out of respect for the man and his influence on popular music.
