Thanks to Google Books, I found the story about Chuck Berry in the Columbus-Phenix City area, in 1969. He was opening act for The Rolling Stones, who had a show in Auburn Alabama. This was revealed briefly in Stanley Booth's book on The Stones, " The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones", starting around page 186:

"...In Atlanta we rented a car... heading down to Auburn... past pine woods and rolling Georgia fields. "Looks very much like Scotland, very pleasant." Stu said. Boy as we went deeper into the country, passing signs ---Don't lose your soul to the mark of the beast, Jesus will save U--- Mo-Jo gas stations, and tarpaper shanties [...] I was driving 90 miles an hour through the Alabama backwoods but the sky had turned black by the time we reached Auburn, and it had begun to snow [...] I would be staying in Columbus that night, and the others would be flying to Illinois. The Dickinsons and I sat in the car of the parking lot and smoked [...] They had come in with Chuck Berry because they happened to be staying in the same motel as Berry in Columbus and they knocked on Berry's door to ask if I was there [...] he did agree to take the Dickinsond to the show if they would guide him there. They had to stop for directions only once. "One of you Caucasians better do the asking," Berry said at an Alabama gas station.[...] The first show had been late and the second show was already so late that Terry Reid was cancelled. The Auburn Special Events people were upset because the coeds had to be in their dorms by midnight. The girls were not groupies or even fans, just coeds with Friday night dates, and the reason there were not more of them was that a lot of the boys were saving money to take them to the big football game tomorrow night.[...]...on the phone with some higher authority, made the announcement that the Auburn coeds had been granted what he called "When-over permission" meaning they could stay out until the concert was over. "While the Rolling Stones are getting ready to come out, let's hear a great Auburn cheer," Jett said, leading the crowd in a crescendo: "Warrr-EAGLE!" [...] The Stones' 2nd set, they were looser and warmer and the audience, War eagles or not, were warmer too.[...] The lights came up for the last three songs [...] "It might happen," Mick said, "even in the streets of Auburn--- Everywhere I hear the sound of marchin', chargin feet, boys..."

Here's that post, Jim Pickens:

I'd rather hear and discuss more about Gram Parsons, and those days... I've kind of turned my back on ploitics again.

Did you see my post on when the Rolling Stones played Auburn?

This was around the time Gram was getting to be good friends with Keith Richards, I believe.

Mick Jagger has been for too long. Here is the spell which causes the massive heart attack stroke.

Omega. Omega. Abbadon. Chort. Lucifuge! Lucifuge!

Paralysis drool stroke Mick Jagger.

Bed sore comatic Mick Jagger.

The car skidded off the road but the fuel pump went on.

Feel the slink of dark vibe paint.

I see a Heart Attack.

Mick Jagger is painted with shellac.

Hex-a-koom-be!

Puff!

As is!

As Was!

THREE! THREE! THREE!

Like a pork rind.

He's been fried.
