I actually prefer Mike Zito's Chuck Berry tribute Rock 'N' Roll A Tribute To Chuck Berry which was released as almost the same time as Ronnie's. The individual tracks have special guest appearances on them and it is more energetic in my opinion.

1. St. Louis Blues - Charlie Berry III
2. Rock N Roll Music - Joanna Connor
3. Johnny B - Goode - Walter Trout
4. Wee Wee Hours - Joe Bonamassa
5. Memphis - Anders Osborne
6. I Want to Be Your Driver- Ryan Perry
7. You Never Can Tell - Robben Ford
8. Back in the USA - Eric Gales
9. No Particular Place to Go - Jeremiah Johnson
10. Too Much Monkey Business - Luther Dickinson
11. Havana Moon - Sonny Landreth
12. Promised Land - Tinsley Ellis
13. Downbound Train - Alex Skolnick
14. Maybelline - Richard Fortus
15. School Days - Ally Venable
16. Brown Eyed Handsome Man - Josh Smith/Kirk Fletcher
17. Reeling and Rocking - Tommy Castro
18. Let It Rock - Jimmy Vivino
19. Thirty Days - Albert Castiglia
20. My Ding a Ling - Kid Andersen

Not sure what some folks were expecting here ?

Ronnie doing Chuck Berry songs was always gong to be just "a bit of fun".

Just enjoy it for what it is.

I found this album excruciating, the playing is bland and predictable, the singing is flat out awful from Wood, May and the backing singers, overall a gruelling slog to get to the end of it. I just cannot imagine anyone playing this more than once. Easily the worst album I've heard in a long time.

That Steppenwolf track reminds me of 'Johnny B Goode's Good' by The Pirates.

I don't understand what you mean ... I don't think that in Ronnie's intentions there was the will to do something better, but simply pay tribute to Chuck Berry and do some evenings in his memory to party and have a lot of fun. Because this is rock 'n roll not a race ...I believe that in our society many people confuse music with competitions, music is not competition!

A one page interview was published today in Le Journal du Dimanche (french sunday newspaper). I did not see it here or elsewhere but we can see Ronnie confirmed his two next tributes will be to Jimmy Reed and Eddie Taylor.

"we get inspired by the best ... you get turned on by great music by great players, and you hope to try and pass that on to the kids now."

-- Ronnie Wood, 2018 Clash Magazine interview


in case anyone needs a reminder of why Stones or Ronnie do these cover records!

By passing it on to the kids listening to the Stones, I presume Ronnie means the 60 and 50 year old Stones fans out there.

But seriously ...what's not to like about a bit of old school Rock N Roll, played essentially for fun by musicians who love it.

It's not supposed to be anything else .Just take it for what it is
