Chuck Berry's Family Confirms Upcoming Release Of LP

After his passing on Saturday (18 March), the internet has been speculating over whether his fifth, and final, album was still going to be released. A statement on his Facebook page Monday shared plans to "reveal further details and music from the album this week". The tone of the post makes it sound like the album itself could be coming any day now, but we'll know more about it pretty soon either way.

Legendary rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry passed away this past weekend, and millions around the world reacted by snapping up the music he created in his lifetime, and they did so in incredible numbers. I will open my scrapbook to a time when a guitarist, singer and songwriter played and influenced untold thousands of musicians. "Now I can hang up up my shoes!"

"This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy", Berry said in a statement back in October. "Inside the home, first responders observed an unresponsive man and immediately administered lifesaving techniques". It's especially exhilarating to see a band who is able to honor a legend like Chuck Berry on the night of his death, then close the night with an actual bagpipe jam. Attempts to resuscitate the 90-year-old legend were unsuccessful. Best known for hits including "Johnny B. Goode" and "Roll Over Beethoven", Berry told ABC News several years ago that he was unable to choose a favorite song.

John Lennon said, "If you tried to give rock & roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry".

Berry leaves behind four children: Darlin Ingrid Berry, Aloha Berry, Charles Berry Jr. and Melody Exes Berry-Eskridge.
