Chuck e. weiss - 23rd & stout

He grew up in Denver, Colorado, where his parents owned a record store (Record Center). Through his parents, and by spending time at the local blues bar Ebbett's Field, he met Lightnin' Hopkins, who was impressed with his drum playing and took him on tour. Weiss had the opportunity to play with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Roger Miller, Dr. John, and others.

Weiss's first album, The Other Side of Town , was released in 1981. [4] Weiss was featured on the 1990 album . Ya Ya , a compilation of performances by Los Angeles-based blues artists. [5] In 1995, Weiss played on P's self-titled album . The band featured Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers and actor Johnny Depp . [6] Weiss released his first full-length album, Extremely Cool, in 1999, featuring extensive collaboration with Tony Gilkyson and Tom Waits , who co-produced the album for his longtime acquaintance. (They met in the early 70s at a nightclub in Denver called Ebbetts Field, where Weiss played in the house band.) [7] Tom Waits appears on at least two tracks. The style is heavily reminiscent of Waits, both in composition and vocal approach. Either could have influenced the other. The opening track Devil With Blue Suede Shoes was produced by Johnny Depp and features none other than Toby Dammit on drums. It was used in Depp's film The Brave . [8] Willie Dixon is quoted on the original packaging of Extremely Cool as saying, "Ain't ya got ears son? That little Jew boy with the big old head be one of the best musicians in this town, this country even."
