BERRY PERRY GOOD: Aerosmith's lead guitarist and rock'n'roll hall of famer, Joe Perry, got into town a day early for his concert Sunday night at the UMB Bank Pavilion so he could meet up with our town's legendary rock'n'roller, Chuck Berry. Perry, 56, and his wife, Billie Perry, and one of their sons wanted to wish Berry well on his upcoming 80th birthday.

They had lunch at Blueberry Hill with three generations of the Berrys - Grandpa Chuck, son Charles Jr. and grandson Charles III.

Blueberry Hill owner Joe Edwards said it was one of the most fun afternoons of music talk and chitchat that he's had in a long time.
