The father of Rock n' Roll Chuck Berry will be laid to rest today in St. Louis where he was born and raised.
The Celebration of the legend's life began last night with 'A Toast to Chuck' outside Blueberry Hill on his star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame. The toast was led by Berry's best friend and Blueberry Hill owner, Joe Edwards.
Johnny Rivers, who had a number one hit with the Berry penned "Memphis," was, also on site to toast his beloved friend. About 20 people showed up for the toast, while all of St. Louis was encouraged to toast wherever they happened to be 10pm.
Even the Rolling Stones sent flowers!
The line outside of Delmar Hall began forming around 5am Sunday, with the first 300 in line being allowed to attend the funeral services of Chuck Berry.
