    AND Chubby Checker. :)

    I mean hey, we've got all but Chuck now! (Though Richard has bowed out of performing - his health began affecting his performances too much, so he willingly retired.)

    Seriously?!

    Little Richard in the 90's was on fire!

    I have said often enough that the entire edifice that is rock’n’roll is held up by the twin pillars of Little Richard and Chuck Berry.
    Little Richard for his searing voice and superb band and Chuck for his scattershot lyrics and iconic guitar style. And most importantly, they wrote the songs.

    Naturally, I’m saddened by Chuck Berry’s passing. The world turns and heroes are gone. The first album I bought with the first money I earned was Chuck Berry’s first album.
    Every band on the planet has learned and played his songs. Immortal songs. Living music.

    Just listening and I had to quote from my favorite song:

    " ... Drop the coin right into the slot
    You've gotta hear somethin' that's really hot
    With the one you love, you're makin' romance
    All day long you been wantin' to dance,
    Feeling the music from head to toe
    Round and round and round we go ... "

    Chuck Berry - Since Chuck’s passing on Saturday, the Berry... | Facebook

    "While our hearts are very heavy at this time, we know that Chuck had no greater wish than to see this album released to the world, and we know of no better way to celebrate and remember his 90 years of life than through his music.

    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. As a tribute to Chuck Berry, and with gratitude to his fans around the world, we will be following through on those plans in the coming days."

    Did anyone expect them to cancel the album's release because he died? I mean, yeah of course they're going to release the album that was already planned for release.

    I think the question would be was enough completed/recorded to warrant a release? We really don't know if the recording sessions are completed. They have been talking about this since last year.

    Oh, I just kind of assumed it was already in the can and ready for release.

    If the songs were merely written but not recorded, perhaps they send them over to the Stones and let them do an album like Blue and Lonesome out of it.

    That would almost guarantee a better album than anything Chuck could have done at 90.

    And probably better than the Stones could have done with their own material.
