Chuck Berry: No plans to retire

 

UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (AP) - Music legend Chuck Berry says he has no plans to retire.
 
The 87-year-old rock `n' roll legend will make his 200th performance on Wednesday at a Missouri night club where he's been performing for nearly two decades. He says he hopes to make it another 200 shows.
 
Berry's hit songs include "Johnny B. Goode," "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Sweet Little Sixteen." The St. Louis native has been performing at the Blueberry Hill night club in University City since 1996.
 
Berry said in October 2012 that his singing days had passed. But he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that performing is in his genes.
 
He says he's thankful for each day, has no plans to retire and will keep going "for as long as the big man upstairs allows."
