Early Life Edit
Born in Chicago and raised in Denver, Colorado, Chuck's taste in music was influenced by his parents record collection as well as the local blues scene. He took up drumming and by the time he was a teenager, had begun to perform with legendary blues musician, Lightnin' Hopkins, after filling in on drums during a local gig. By the late 1960s, he was going on tour with Hopkins, and found himself performing and/or recording with the likes of Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Dr. John, and Rodger Miller.
By the early 1970s, he was a DJ at local radio station KFML AM-FM Colorado Free Form Radio. In 1972, he met Tom Waits and from there struck up a music collaboration lasting for many years. After living in Chicago for some time, he moved to Los Angeles in the late 1970s and by 1981 released his first album.
Over the years, he has collaborated with his friend, actor and musician Johnny Depp.

After whispering in his ears about what she'd do for a chance at being a video slut, he happily runs off with the girl.
