Miles Davis Vs. Chuck Berry For Best St. Louis Musician of All Time

It’s an epic showdown between two icons of music as Miles Davis and Chuck Berry battle for the title of Best St. Louis Musician of All Time.

Put together by St. Louis Magazine, the fifth and final round is underway. Be sure to vote here; the winner will be announced April 23.

Miles Davis dispatched Clark Terry, Willie Akins, Albert King, and Scott Joplin on his way to the final, while Chuck Berry had to face-off against Ike and Tina Turner, Michael McDonald, Uncle Tupelo, and Willa Mae Ford Smith to reach the championship round.

St. Louis has clearly produced a lot of amazing musicians, but this is the final that had to happen. No offense to Nelly, but there is no way he is getting out of the Elite Eight against Scott Joplin to face Miles. It was nice to see Uncle Tupelo make a run before bowing out to Chuck Berry.

In the end, both Chuck Berry and Miles Davis are worthy of the title.

I really like Chuck Berry, but I love Miles Davis, so I’ll give the nod to the jazz legend in the championship final.
