CHUCK BERRY was the first person inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME. His inscription reads: "While no individual can be said to have invented rock and roll, CHUCK BERRY comes the closest." On FRIDAY, JULY 29th at 10a, internationally known sculptor HARRY WEBER's 8-foot bronze statue, honoring native St. Louisan and legendary rock and roll pioneer CHUCK BERRY will be officially dedicated.
CBS RADIO Talk KMOX-A mid-morning host CHARLIE BRENNAN spearheaded a campaign to raise $100,000 to fund the project and will broadcast his show that day from the dedication. “St. Louisans should be proud to know one of their own created the most significant musical art form following World War II. As JOHN LENNON said, ‘If rock & roll had a different name, it would be CHUCK BERRY’. I am proud ST. LOUIS is recognizing CHUCK’s genius,” said BRENNAN.
BRENNAN would love to feature artists that would like to honor and congratulate CHUCK BERRY as they recognize his genius.
