Chuck Negron – Former Lead Singer of Three Dog Night
Rock - At age 15, Negron was a Brooklyn street corner doo-wop singer. He formed a group called the Roundels and booked into the famed Apollo as the only Caucasian act. It was there that Negron discovered great music combined with great performance cut a pass through the thickets of race and culture.
In 1967, Negron, Corey Wells and Danny Hutton joined forces in what eventually became Three Dog Night. Between 1969 and 1975, the group spawned 21 consecutive Billboard Top 40 hits with three reaching the #1 spot. The group generated twelve straight gold albums and sold nearly 50 million records by late 1975. Three Dog Night became one of the most commercially successful rock/pop groups of all-time.
With success came the trappings of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, which for Negron focused on drugs. By the time Three Dog Night split in 1977, he had a 2,000-dollar-a-day habit. He remained in the grip of addiction until 1991 when he turned his life around. Since then he has released four albums and written two autobiographies. Chuck is active with several addiction support groups whose aim is to keep drugs out of the music industry.
Songs: "Joy to the World", “One”, “Easy To Be Hard”, “Old Fashioned Love Song,” “The Show Must Go On”.
