Chuck Berry, 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll', Dies at 90
ST. LOUIS (SLFP.com), March 19, 2017 - Chuck Berry, Charles Anderson Edward Berry on October 18, 1926, in St. Louis, Missouri, celebrated his 90th birthday, October 18, with an announcement that he would release a new album - titled simply 'CHUCK' - in 2017 on Dualtone Records (an Entertainment One Company).
In a release, Berry said, "This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy, referring to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry. "My darlin' I'm growing old! I've worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!"
Chuck Berry made a regular appearance in the Blueberry Hill Duck Room, located in the Delmar Loop in University City, MO, where he performed more than 207 concerts. A bronze statue across the street honors the music legend and his iconic duck walk.
According to Rolling Stone magazine he "laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance," and many of his compositions - "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Rock and Roll Music" and others - have become the genre's canonical texts. Another, "Johnny B. Goode," is the only rock and roll song included on the Voyager Golden Record, launched into space in 1977, and intended to represent life and culture on Earth to extraterrestrial beings.
Berry received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1984, and was in the inaugural class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees in 1986. He was awarded a Kennedy Center Honor in 2000, placed #5 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All-Time in 2010, and was given the first-ever PEN Award for literary excellence in lyric writing in 2012, and Sweden's Polar Music Prize in 2014. Last year, his classic 1973 red Cadillac Eldorado went on display as part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American Culture and History.
Chuck Berry's legendary salute, 'Hail, Hail Rock 'n' Roll, will be missed by St. Louisans and music lovers around the world. He will be remembered fondly as the 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll.'

ST. LOUIS (SLFP.com), July 29, 2010 - St. Louis legend Chuck Berry, and a very special guest Nelly, rocked downtown's Kiener Plaza, Thursday, July 29, in a free concert to support city's bid for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. St. Louis is one of four finalist cities for the convention.
At 8:30 p.m. promptly, Berry took to the stage at the Morton D. May Amphitheatre to play for nearly an hour before nearly 1,500 fans including local dignitaries and representatives from the DNC.
Outside the fenced area, hundreds of fans gathered just to hear their favorite songs. The concert came to a rousing close with many from the VIP section eagerly joining Chuck Berry on stage to wave signs for the 2012 DNC. There was a corresponding sea of signs from the audience also waving in support.
At the conclusion of Berry's performance, St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley took to the stage to promote the city. "This is not just good for the city, but it is also good for the county to have the 2012 DNC in St. Louis," Dooley said enthusiastically.
The crowd enjoyed another St. Louis star Nelly who closed out the evening event to loud cheers and everyone dancing.
In a statement prior to the concert, St. Louis Mayor Francis G. Slay said, "Chuck Berry is one of our most celebrated citizens, and we're excited about his support for our bid. This rally is a great way to build and show grassroots support and energy for our bid. To get this convention and to make it successful, our greatest resource will be the people of St. Louis. We will need a lot of volunteers willing to work. We are holding the rally and concert to involve people in our bid. What better way to do it than with a St. Louis musical legend!"
A well-heeled crowd sat in the Morton D. May Amphitheater at Keiner Plaza to enjoy the free concert by Chuck Berry in support of the city's bid for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Archived © slfp.com photo
