Description
With his chunky blues-based guitar riffs, outrageous solos, and flamboyant showmanship, Chuck Berry played a huge part in shaping the rock and roll archetypes for songwriting and performance. That may help to explain why you’ll often find a Berry tune or two in a band’s repertoire, even if they’re not they type to duckwalk across the stage. In this collection of Chuck Berry Covers you can hear Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Winter, Rockpile (with Keith Richards sitting in), the Beach Boys, ELO, James Taylor and more paying tribute to one of the founding fathers of rock -- no matter whose hands they're in, these tunes will make you want to dance and holler all over the floor.
