After Elvis, only Chuck Berry had more influence on the form and development of rock and roll.

Would we have a Beatles or a Rolling Stones without him?

By putting together this 20-track tribute album, singer/guitarist/producer Mike Zito hoped to introduce Berry’s music to younger fans who may not be familiar with his classic songs. So, among a bunch of seasoned musicians such as Walter Trout (Johnny B. Goode) and Robben Ford (You Never Can Tell), there are some surprise guests that include Testament guitarist Alex

Skolnick (who reinvents Downtown Train) and Sonny Landreth (who brings a calypso Cuban feel via his pedal steel guitar to Havana Moon), while Rock And Roll Musicis re-imagined by slide guitarist Joanna Connor. Timeless music respectfully presented by talented artists.

A Tribute To Chuck Berry by Mike Zito & Friendsis out now Only Blues.
