Below is an excerpt from a 2011 Esquire magazine article:



There's new material.

He's got a Pro Tools studio in his home. He uses it. For decades, he's noodled around with different ideas. He'll lay down the demos himself, just a drum machine and his guitar. He's used to this sort of thing, to recording by himself. That's how he recorded that song, "Memphis Tennessee," for example. Just him alone in his business office one afternoon in 1958, the door closed, his guitar, his voice, and a reel-to-reel.

And so is it any surprise that all that new material, all those unreleased songs, are kept in his total control? The old ones might have seeped into every corner of the world by now, but these new ones, they've never moved beyond the few thousand square feet of his home.

This despite the fact that the people who have heard them, who've actually played on them, like Bob Lohr, the piano player/criminal-defense lawyer who has replaced Johnnie Johnson in Chuck's lineup, swear up and down that some of the tracks are "as good as anything he's ever done."
