|Update: Chuck Berry not ill, just sulking|

We reported on Monday that rock legend Chuck Berry was feared ill after cancelling two concerts in Spain over the weekend with no notice.
Concert organizers, who were enraged because they had to call Berry's representatives themselves to find out what happened when he simply didn't show up, now say they've been told that Berry had just flown home and decided not to continue his European tour because he was sulking after an argument with his daughter.
"They apparently rowed because she did not allow him to drive as fast as he would have liked on the British roads," reported El Pais newspaper.
Concert promoters are now considering legal action against Berry, who was paid 72,000 euros in advance.
"We had no time to react. We found out he wasn't coming one hour before the concert, and just because we called them up. Otherwise, we'd still be waiting," said a spokesman for Br Music.
