Now and then Chevy - who plays drums and keyboards - is asked about those time in interviews. And today we came across a new one in dailycamera mainly about Chevy's involvement in The Boulder International Film Festival. But he does get one question about the old music days:
Camera As a longtime Steely Dan fan, I have to ask about this story I've heard for years that you played drums in an early version of that band.
CC Yeah. We were together in college. I miss all that fun we had. We didn't call ourselves Steely Dan; we weren't ready for that. We were more into the jazz idiom. I was a drummer at the time and I really wanted to learn piano better and that's really what I concentrated on and one of the reasons I didn't really continue with them. It wasn't like they asked me to be part of Steely Dan -- by then I was doing other things. But we had fun and I just think they're terrific. I think they're a real great American band.
If they had wanted to continue talking music they could perhaps have gone on to the group Chamaeleon Church, where Chevy was a member for the single album that the group recorded and released in 1968. A bit pop and a bit progressive.
On the album Chevy sings lead vocals on one song; Here's A Song, and we've added that to the Radio Dupree playlist together with another song from the album.
And here's yet another one we found on YouTube!
