After fainting during a Jan. 1 show in Chicago, Berry, 84, is back playing out again. He recently played two gigs at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room in St. Louis, and is scheduled again next month.
Berry's agent, Dick Alen, said Berry was just suffering from exhaustion when he fainted and that he still carries his own suitcase, his own guitar and travels alone.
Berry is one of rock and roll's legends and founding fathers, breaking onto the scene with the Johnnie Johnson Trio in 1953.
His numerous hits include "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Johnny B. Goode." While Berry always seemed to be on the charts, especially in the late '50s, he only had one No. 1 U.S. pop single, "My Ding-a-Ling" in 1972.
Berry's legend continued to grow when his raucous playing style of "Johnny B. Goode" was emulated by Michael J. Fox in the 1985 blockbuster "Back to the Future."
Berry was one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
