Category: Statue


Across from the Blueberry Hill Restaurant in the Delmar Loop stands an 8-foot tall statue honoring the St. Louis native and rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry. The bronze figure leans forward as he strums a chord on his famous Gibson guitar in a special plaza highlighting Berry’s music. The cause was spearheaded by Joe Edwards, owner of the landmark restaurant and music club, Blueberry Hill, and KMOX radio host, Charlie Brennan. Berry still lives and performs in St. Louis.
