Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry is a loving nod to one of Ronnie’s musical heroes, Chuck Berry. The album features guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters. Featuring tracks including ‘Tribute to Chuck Berry’ written by Wood and ‘Worried Life Blues‘ written by Maceo Merriweather, and with the album artwork hand-painted by Ronnie himself.
The album will be the first in a trilogy to be recorded by Wood and the band in the coming years, each paying tribute to Ronnie’s musical heroes. Ronnie chose Chuck Berry for the first album as he has been a lifelong fan, has toured with him and also, to honour Chuck’s death in 2017.
