Chuck Berry fans can look forward to new album as they mourn

     (AP) – Fans mourning Chuck Berry's death can look forward to an album
of mostly new material expected this year.
     The 90-year-old Berry died Saturday at his home near St. Louis. Berry's songs
include the classics "Johnny B. Goode" and "Roll Over Beethoven."
     Friend Joe Edwards says he's heard the new album Berry announced in October.
Edwards calls it "sensational."
     Edwards owns the St. Louis club where Berry performed regularly and says he'll
miss his friend tremendously. The first single off the new album was scheduled
before Berry's death to be released in the next few weeks.
     Funeral arrangements hadn't been announced Sunday. One of Berry's
representatives, Matt Hanks, said he didn't have any new information about the
release plans for the "Chuck" album.
