The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland is honoring a rock music pioneer.
Chuck Berry, who recently turned 86, will be the rock hall's guest at the State Theater Saturday night in Cleveland. He will receive its American Music Masters award and perform.
To mark the occasion, the rock hall has mounted a special exhibition with Berry's stage clothes, a guitar and his 1958 Chess Records recording contract.
And the rock hall's new library and archives has a separate exhibit with items including Berry's 1964 British tour program and a handbill promoting his appearance with the Grateful Dead in 1968.
