    BBC Local Live

    You'll have no doubt heard the sad news that rock 'n' roll legend Chuck Berry died at the weekend .

    But who knew he was such a massive fan of curry?

    Chuck Berry

    Back in 1994, he played Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall, a venue he chose because of its proximity to the Mogal-E-Azam restaurant.

    According to  music news website Clash Music , Berry was able to sneak out of the stage door, directly opposite the Indian restaurant, so he could have his meal immediately after the gig!

    Theatre Royal

    The Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall said  on Facebook  it was "saddened" to hear of his death: "Another musical legend gone."
