Ronnie Wood has announced a new Chuck Berry tribute album. The album, Ronnie Wood With His Wild Five - Mad Lad: A Live Tribute To Chuck Berry will be released November 15th via BMG.
Paying homage to his musical hero, The Rolling Stones guitarist organised a special show at Wimborne's Tivoli Theatre last year. The show, which contained guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters, was recorded live.
The album features Chuck Berry classics such as 'Johnny B Goode', 'Little Queenie' and 'Rock and Roll Music'. The Mad Lad album also features the track 'Tribute to Chuck Berry' written by Ronnie, and 'Worried Life Blues' written by Maceo Merriweather.
With the album artwork hand painted by Ronnie himself, Mad Lad will be available to buy digitally, on CD, on heavyweight vinyl, via a deluxe box set (which contains a CD, LP and a 12x12 art card of the album artwork) and in a super deluxe limited edition box set (which includes a CD, LP, 12x12 art print, signed and numbered set lists and a t-shirt).
