Chuck Berry

When Tina Turner won a coveted slot on the Walk of Fame in 1986, Chuck Berry, the “Father of Rock and Roll,” and arguably one of the best guitarists to ever walk the earth, did not make the cut. Executives at his label MCA Records felt “snubbed.” But Berry was inducted the following year with the 1,857th star in September 1987.
