Mr Rock 'n Roll in concert
At the beginning of their career The Beatles covered Chuck Berry's legendary 'Roll Over Beethoven'. The first single from the Rolling Stones was his resilient 'Come On'. And that Jimi Hendrix played 'Johnny B. Goode' is another proof for the respect Chuck Berry enjoys from the big ones of the music business. As 'Mr. Rock 'n' Roll' Chuck experienced every high and low, and age 85 he is still as lively as at the time when everything began. He can't help it; Rock 'n' Roll is his handcraft, passion and the eternal flirt with life.
In Chuck Berry Plays Avo Sessions, the legendary rocker performs his greatest hits at the intimate sessions in Basel, Switzerland in 2007.
As John Lennon once said: "If you tried to give rock 'n' roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'". So welcome Mr. Berry on the Avo Session stage!
