Arch Angels

So, there's a gargantuan, glistening arch planted right here in the front yard of the Hyatt (Riot) House in St. Louis, MO, where we are presently holed up.  They tell us this is the "Gateway to the West."  It's either that, or the biggest McDonald's we've ever seen.

Either way, we plan to pass through it on our way to Blueberry Hill tonight where we'll revisit the Duck Room, which is Chuck Berry's monthly residency and local hangout.  Had the pleasure of meeting and sharing the stage with Chuck once, when I was on the road with Ronnie Spector and we played a musical gala at the G8 Conference in Denver.  He was a real gentleman and when I asked if he'd pose for a pic, he got this mischievous look on his face and just before the photographer clicked, he grabbed me and swept me up into his arms -- just like carryin' the bride across the threshold!  It was a real smooth move.

Blueberry Hill, meanwhile, is covered with pics of Chuck and his Rock Royalty buds.  Most numerous are the shots of Chuck and Keef.  The two of them together?  Simply: It doesn't get cooler than this.

Tomorrow, back through the Arch, which also happens to be the "Gateway to the East" (depending upon which side you are standing), back into Eastern Standard Time and onward to Pittsburgh.  Hail!  Hail! Rock and Roll!  -sjp
