Chuck Berry was honored this morning by his hometown of St. Louis with the dedication of an eight-foot-tall statue in his honor. "

 

"It's glorious – I do appreciate it to the highest, no doubt about that," Berry told Rolling Stone just prior to the ceremony in University City, just outside St. Louis. "That sort of honor is seldom given out. But I don't deserve it."

 

Several hundred fans braved temperatures that soared into the 90s to catch a glimpse of Berry, 84, who was dressed in a denim shirt, string tie and his trademark sailor's cap.
