Last Friday, Chuck Berry’s final album — and first in more than 35 years — was released.
The album, simply called CHUCK, was released just three months after the legendary rocker passed.
Last night, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Nathaniel Rateliff, Chuck Berry’s son and grandson, Charles Berry Jr and III, and The Roots paid homage to the legendary rocker. They performed a rousing rendition of “Big Boys,” one of the standout tracks on CHUCK.
What makes this performance really cool is that Nathaniel and the two Charles are all musicians who have recently collaborated with the legendary rock star; all three appear in some form or another on CHUCK. (And everyone knows how much Questlove admires Berry.)
It was a performance full of energy and love. Watch it below.
