The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has already announced the schedule for Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry, this year’s annual American Music Masters Series. As always, the week-long event culminates with a gala tribute concert. The line-up for the tribute concert, which takes place on on Oct. 27 at the State Theatre, already includes Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ernie Isley and Darryl DMC McDaniels, Joe Bonamassa, Rosie Flores, John Fullbright, David Johansen, Lemmy Kilmister, JD McPherson, Chuck Prophet, Duke Robillard, Earl Slick and M. Ward. Chuck Berry himself will be on hand and is scheduled to perform. And now the Rock Hall has added guitarist Rick Derringer, rockabilly star Ronnie Hawkins, country icon Merle Haggard, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid and singer-guitarist Ray Sharpe. The Rock Hall also announced that jazz guitarist and banjoist Bucky Pizzarelli will not perform due to a scheduling conflict.
