NEW YORK (AP) -- A big honor for Chuck Berry is in the works. The man who is one of rock 'n' roll's pioneers will be honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of its American Music Masters series. Berry is already a member of the Rock Hall -- having inducted in 1986. In October, Berry will be the focus of a weeklong celebration -- ending with an all-star tribute concert on Oct 27. Performers have yet to be announced, though Berry will be among those taking the stage. In a statement, Berry says he is looking forward to the event.
