Chuck Berry tells the story of the Granddaddy of Rock & Roll. In this highly- anticipated official and fully-authorized feature documentary, the absolute instigator of Rock and Roll, Chuck Berry, is truly revealed with exclusive access to his family, friends, famous fans and the music icons he inspired.
Chuck Berry’s 60th birthday concert and the drama surrounding it were captured in Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll, but until now, Berry’s life has never before been covered on screen. With Chuck Berry, Award-winning filmmaker Jon Brewer (BB King: The Life of Riley, Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark), lends new insight to the man known as the bedrock of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Several rock & roll legends reflect on what Berry meant to them, with exclusive access to Mrs. Berry and the Berry family.
Despite his iconic status, and reverence for his talent by rock’s heroes John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Steve Van Zandt, Joe Perry, Alice Cooper, all featured, Chuck Berry was at heart, a family man. He was a prolific craftsman of words and chords; an undisputed and stunning combination of talent and charisma.
