Barrelhouse Chuck

Barrelhouse Chuck


In 2016, the music world lost longtime Chicago Bluesman Barrelhouse Chuck to cancer. He was just 58.   
 
I had the pleasure of visiting Chuck a few months earlier. He was pretty weak, but managed to tell me his story and even sit down at the piano for awhile.    
 
Chuck was not only a great Chicago bluesman, he may also have been the genre's biggest fan.
