The fattest head on rock's Mount Rushmore; a country/blues guitarist from St. Louis. His musical inventiveness - and his lyrical flair for universal topix like kars, gurls, skool, gurls (his fave), kars, and rock'n'roll - kept him from being consigned to the R&B ghetto. Bands - from The Beatles to Los Rolling Stones (Keith Richards would be a clerk in Sarnia if not for him) to the Electric Light Orchestra have scored hits from Chuck's pen. And Chuck made damn sure he got Paid.
