How lucky we are in St. Louis to have a performer as important as Chuck Berry as one of our own? In one of my first days in town I was in the University City Loop and I saw the marquee at Blueberry Hill read: “Chuck Berry Tonight.” I inquired inside about the show and was told: “…Oh, Chuck plays here once a month.” I was jaw-dropped.

Chuck Berry, a guy who directly inspired and still to this day continues to inspire generations of musical performers and shaped and still shapes music as we know it.

So important is Chuck Berry to music that he was the very first inductee to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. That makes him the Babe Ruth of Rock n Roll music.

He’s ours.

Chuck Berry turns 87 years old today!! Happy birthday Chuck!!

Oh, by the way Chuck Berry is playing at Blueberry Hill, on November 13th.
