Chuck Berry fans can look forward to new album as they mourn

One of rock "n" roll's greatest blueprinters, Chuck Berry, passed away over the weekend at the age of 90.

He was best known for such songs as You Never Can Tell, Johnny B. Goode and Roll Over Beethoven. It was there-at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival-that Berry delivered a historic set that foreshadowed the coming ascendence of guitar-based rock and roll.

Tim Riley, professor of journalism at Emerson College, Boston-based music critic, and author of "Lennon: Man, Myth, Music".

Chuck Berry died of natural causes, according to TMZ, and no autopsy is planned. St. Charles County police said they responded to a medical emergency to find Berry unresponsive.

The 28 minutes of footage shows Berry belting out hits like "Roll Over Beethoven", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Nadine", and "Memphis, Tennessee" to an excited crowd of hundreds in the vehicle dealership's parking lot. They immediately administered lifesaving techniques, however they we're not able to revive the 90-year-old Berry.

It then goes on to confirm: "For months now plans have been in place, and preparations have been made with our friends at Dualtone Records, to reveal further details and music from the album this week".

According to a statement released by Berry's estate following his death, the new LP - titled Chuck and announced a year ago on the guitarist's 89th birthday - is still very much in the works.

A press release from October 18, 2016 - Berry's 90 birthday - said the rock legend recorded the album in several studios in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri and featured his longtime backing group and his children Charles Berry Jr. and Ingrid Berry. To us he was a magician making music that was exotic yet normal at the same time.
