His statue in St. Louis is getting the shrine treatment.

It was always cool back when he still got out and about and would show up at concerts. I got to see him jump on stage with Dave Edmunds back in the 90s, which was awfully cool.

The best sighting, though, was when my brother spied him in the audience to see Husker Du, wearing a huge white fur coat with a 20-something girl on his arm.

Three chords and a solo = rock and roll = Chuck Berry = every band that came after = rock and roll = Chuck Berry

I remember a late 70s SNL skit about aliens receiving our culture capsule and responding thusly:

SEND MORE CHUCK BERRY!!

Y'all may or may not get a kick out of this.

. . .

Also just realized that the late Mr. Berry lived right down the highway from me.

Small world.
