Players and fans alike were humming "Hail! Hail! Rock & Roll" during Wednesday's Cardinals game, as the team honored music legend and St. Louis native Chuck Berry with his own bobblehead. The 87-year-old Polar Music Prize recipient accepted his plastic likeness in person and also threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Cards conquered the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 in extra innings.

Always the ladies' man:

Not much "throwing" is happening here, actually:

Let it go people. Did u ever think that a worker installed the cameras?! Just because he owned it doesn't mean he knew it was happening. It just falls in him cause he was the owner. And yes he has the money to pay for a good lawyer!

There is no king of rock and roll and even if there was Chuck would not be him.

I guess you think that people who video little girls going to the bathroom are awesome? Go head Ricky, keep defending this piece of shit. PS Enjoy your Cheerios (:

A class action law suit was filed against Berry back in 1990 for installing video cameras in the ladies' bathrooms at his Southern Air Restaurant in Wentzville MO. Berry's cameras caught not only women but children using the bathrooms. After the case was settled out of court allegations surfaced that many people's cases were thrown out due to lost evidence. It was obvious to me and several other people involved in the case that Berry had bought his way out of trouble...Again.

Love Chuck Barry! Grateful for his contribution to music. How different the music scene would be without his gift.
