Editorâ€™s note: Filmmaker and arts impresario Jay Craven has been telling his story of the day and night he spent trying to get Chuck Berry to honor his contract and perform in the Northeast Kingdom. He continues his story this week, where he left off â€” getting Chuck Berry to finally agree to get in his car and drive to the St. Louis airport. But time was very tight and Jay has to promise heâ€™d come up with an additional $2500 to motivate Berry to make the trip to Lyndonville.
Time was wasting and Chuck Berry was still negotiatingâ€”even after I agreed to his terms.
