(NEW YORK) — Chuck Berry, rock 'n' roll's founding guitar hero and storyteller who defined the music's joy and rebellion in such classics as "Johnny B. Goode," ''Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Roll Over Beethoven," died Saturday at his home in an unincorporated area west of St. Louis. He was 90.

Emergency responders summoned to Berry's residence by his caretaker about 12:40 p.m. found him unresponsive, police in Missouri's St. Charles County said in a statement. Attempts to revive Berry failed, and he was pronounced shortly before 1:30 p.m., police said.

A police spokeswoman, Val Joyner, told The Associated Press she had no additional details about the death of Berry, calling him "really a legend."

PBC favourite Eugene 'Hideaway' Bridges head's back to the club on Tuesday 14 March, supported by the Swamp Stompers and Bob Patient's Playing with my Friends.

Anyone who follows Eugene on facebook knows he is a nomadic musician living his life "on the road" and "in the air" with his favourite airline QANTAS. His home is wherever the next performance takes him, and every year this is from America through Europe and Great Britain, to the Far East, New Zealand and Australia with many other stops in between.

This will be his 30th visit to Australia and he will be promoting his most recent CD Hold On A Little Bit Longer (see review below).

This will be a sell-out night so make sure you get there early.

 Perth psych rockers DATURA4 have released their new album, ‘Hairy Mountain‘.

The release follows up from their acclaimed 2015 debut album ‘Demon Blues‘. It is available online and instores now through Alive NaturalSound Records.

‘Hairy Mountain‘ builds on DATURA4’s ‘guitars to infinity‘ approach and classic song-writing skills and features ten tracks which celebrate an unbridled joy for rock’n’roll with a nod to the spiritual presence of their hairy Oz rock forefathers.

Recorded during the summer of 2016 at Electric City in North Fremantle and Real2Reel Studios in WA’s south-west, ‘Hairy Mountain‘ is the culmination of a lifetime of musical archaeology and the ongoing search for the never ending riff.

Give it a listen below.

The Perth Blues Club (PBC) is 25 years old this year. Many believe it to be the most successful blues club in Australia and perhaps the southern hemisphere. Subsequently, we want to know what are the significant factors that have helped the PBC achieve such status.

We would like you to let us know what the Perth Blues Club means to you and what significant experiences you have had there. To answer these questions we are undertaking a survey of members, musicians and others that have attended or still attend the regular Tuesday night performances and special events at The Charles Hotel and elsewhere.

Your response will be reviewed and used potentially in an article, and as selected quotations in a proposed publication about the Perth Blues Club in celebration of bringing you 25 years of live blues music in Perth.

Please provide your response by the end of April 2017 using the form here.

Alternatively, you can collect a copy of the form from the PBC Shop on a Tuesday night and return the completed form before the closing date.
