I know this is an OLD thread but I thought I would throw my two cents in since I was listing him as an influence and teacher on my profile.
I had the honor of having Chuck at my high school while he was fulfilling his student teaching requirements for his undergrad degree at Morehead State University in KY. I can't begin to list all the things that I learned from him about bass, music, and life. He was not only a great teacher, he became a friend.
Years later while I was attending MSU working toward my BME, Chuck returned to get his Masters. So I was once again able to study with him.
Though I don't sound like him or begin to play like him and it's been twenty years since we first met, I can barely think about bass and not think of Chuck.
