Happy 90th Birthday Mr. Berry!

Rock n' roll pioneer Chuck Berry, who turned 90 on Tuesday, celebrated his birthday by announcing that his new LP Chuck, the guitarist's first LP in 38 years, will arrive in 2017 on Dualtone Records.

Chuck, Berry's first album since 1979's Rock It, is stocked with new, original songs written, recorded and produced by the rock legend.

Berry dedicated his upcoming album to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry. "This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy," Berry said in a statement. "My darlin', I'm growing old! I've worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!"

Berry recorded Chuck with his longtime backing band that includes his children Charles Berry Jr. (guitar) and Ingrid Berry (harmonica), as well as bassist Jimmy Marsala, who has played with Berry for 40 years, pianist Robert Lohr and drummer Keith Robinson. This backing band has performed alongside Berry at the rock legend's famed Blueberry Club shows over the past two decades.

"What an honor to be part of this new music," Charles Berry Jr. said in a statement. "The St. Louis band, or as dad called us 'the Blueberry Hill Band,' fell right into the groove and followed his lead. These songs cover the spectrum from hard driving rockers to soulful thought provoking time capsules of a life's work."

More details about Chuck – and Berry-related events to mark his 90th birthday – will be announced in the coming weeks.

Well I don't know whether he deserves it or not really I've been reading poetry all my life and I never really regarded his lyrics as poetry although I suppose you could look at them that way I always more considered Jim Morrison's words as the most poetic in popular music

On A personal level I'm not sure Bob deserves this award for two reasons .....number 1 he didn't attend George Harrison's concert for George at the Albert Hall I mean he was in a group with him for a few years and the other reason is I spent a fortune going to see him and he never said a word during the show he never smiled or said hello.... and he changed Melody of every song ....I only recognised them because of the words, it was probably the worst concert I've ever been too.

He was probably being Iconic   ha2ha

It's strange isn't it I don't see it as an insult, but very funny..... if Paul said that to me I would laugh my head off

I think either Phil Collins is over-reacting or the press is making up stuff.  I'm sure Paul knew the story of Phil Collins being in the audience at the end of A Hard Day's Night.  This is what Paul undoubtedly meant when he said "our little Phil..."


Maybe he's over being teased by Beatles after George played the joke on him about his percussion playing on All Things Must Pass

I hadn't considered that angle. It would be nice if that's the case.
