When I found out that Chuck Berry still puts on concerts about once a month at Blueberry Hill, I decided I needed to see him while I had the chance.  My Dad and brother Mike joined me.  I wasn’t expecting too much – I mean, the man turns 86 tomorrow (Oct 18th) – but I can honestly say, it was $35 well spent.  He put on a great show.  He was having a good time, so was the audience and he can still play a mean guitar.  Love you Chuck!
