Vids 21/03/2017

Over the weekend Rock 'n' Roll pioneer and legend, Chuck Berry died aged 90.

Since finding fame in the mid 1950's with songs like Maybellene, Johnny B. Goode and Roll over Beethoven he has been an inspiration to musicians all over the world.

Berry's guitar skills were hugely influential on the rock and roll scene and The Beatles have covered a number of his songs.

His big break came in May 1955 when he met Muddy Waters and he recorded Maybellene which sold over a million copies reaching number one on Billboard magazine's rhythm and blues chart. By the end of the 1950's he was an established star.

He continued to play concerts right through until his death and on his 90th birthday he announced that his first new studio album since Rock It in 1979 would be released this year. His family still plan to release the album called Chuck as planned.
