John Lennon said “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.'” The man whose name is synonymous with rock and roll just turned 90, and he announced today that he will be releasing his first album in 38 years. The album, entitled Chuck, will be released in 2017 on Dualtone Records

In addition to being the first person inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Berry was also honored by NASA when his song “Johnny B. Goode” was included on the Golden Record that placed aboard the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft in 1977.
