Leave it to "The Father Of Rock N' Roll" Chuck Berry to blow more than few minds on his 90th birthday by announcing his first album in 37 years. Berry, who hit the big "9-0" yesterday (October 18th) will release Chuck -- his first new studio set since his 1979's Rock It. Berry, who wrote and produced the new collection due out in 2017, tipped his signature captain's hat to his wife of 68 years Themetta, by declaring, "This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy. My darlin' I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!"

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Berry is backed by his regular live backing band featuring son Charles Berry Jr. on guitar and Ingrid Berry on vocals and harmonica, along with Keith Robinson on drums, Robert Lohr on piano, and Jimmy Marsala on bass.

  • Marsala recalled that the new album has literally been in the planning stages since the release of Rock It -- way back in 1979: "He was constantly working on stuff all the time, on airplanes, writing lyrics down, always coming up with new ideas -- Let's try this, lets try that.' He still has a lot to say."
  • Chuck Berry's spokesman Joe Edwards, said, "It’s a really nice gift to the fans. He has the rock songs to get you hooked and those great Chuck Berry lyrics. He was the first great poet laureate of rock n' roll. When people hear these songs, they’re going to be fascinated. It took time to pull all the songs together. He has been enjoying performing so much."

  • When we last caught up to Chuck Berry we asked him what fans can expect for his next studio album: "There will be two of. . . at least two, maybe three of the hits as known, as well-known as 'Johnny B. Goode' and 'Maybellene,' from which I'm sure that'll be what it is. The rest will be new songs that I have not done before."
