» A LITTLE ABOUT

Happy Belated Birthday…June 21st

» INTERESTING NOTE

He had no interest in music at all until a neighbor gave him his used guitar at a neighborhood picnic. His “chord” was an open Em. That was the beginning of it all.

» FUN FACT

Chuck was into sports in general and into basketball and martial arts in particular. It was a sprained ankle that temporarily stopped his sports involvement and started his life long love and pursuit of music. Also, Chuck is a Jazz Guitar Today contributor! You can find his latest article at ‘The Anderson Files’.
