CHUCK BERRY: Reaches Another Milestone
Chuck Berry marks a milestone Wednesday night. His monthly show at the Duck Room of the St. Louis rock club Blueberry Hill will be his 200th, in a series that began in 1996. And while he admits to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that at age 87, time is beginning to catch up to him, he has no plans to retire.
He says, “I’m thankful for each and every day. We never know when time is up. I’m thankful for performing as long as I am allowed. I didn’t know [God] was going to let me be around, but it feels like he gave me a little more time. I’ll keep going for as long as the big man upstairs allows, and I’m looking forward to 200 more.”
