Chuck’s debut album was a great thrift store find for me even though I generally avoid Christian music. Overjoyed to see you got an interview with him, can’t wait to listen.

There used to be a thread on here about a Secret Falsetto on the Little Deuce Coupe album besides Brian, it's Chuck! We now know! You can hear him on the fadeout of No Go Showboat.  Shocked

Checked with Chuck and he indicated he was not at either the LDC or the NGS sessions.

Chuck sang on No Go Showboat by The Timers, which featured co lead vocals by Brian and Gary Usher. Chuck has only featured on one Beach Boys track and that was Why Do Fools Fall In Love, on which he provided hand claps. On the other side of No Go, though, was the superb Competition Coupe.

There could well be a feature on Chuck in the next edition of The Ugly Things magazine.

It would have been fascinating to hear Chuck sing lead on a Beach Boys song given his nasal-sounding singing. His vocals on tracks like Little Honda, My Buddy Seat, My Little Bike and the above tracks are definitely some of the best of the surf/hot rod genre.

I rarely post - but I absolutely Love The Hondells. I love that genre of music. Hot Rod High is one of my favorite songs of all time.

Many thanks for posting this!  I just listened to the entire thing.  Finally the mystery is solved of who is singing on "No Go Showboat" by the Timers.
