John Lennon said, “If you tried to give rock ’n’ roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.’” The guitar legend who set the blueprint for the genre with his indelible combination of talent, style and swagger is remembered in this insightful tribute, featuring an array of star contemporaries, including Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards and Steve Van Zandt. Exploring the musical genius and lasting influence of the prolific craftsman behind “Maybellene” and “Johnny B. Good,” Chuck Berry: The Original King of Rock 'n' Roll also reveals the man behind the music through rare interviews with his family members.
