Thats the situation facing Chuck E. Weiss, a jazz and blues singer who has long been a mainstay in the Los Angeles music scene.
Hes also the guy who inspired Rickie Lee Jones 1978 hit, Chuck E.s In Love, and admits hes still baffled by that songs enduring interest.
Says Weiss: Usually no one mentions the song to me at gigs but, occasionally, someone will ask me at gigs why dont I cover it, and I ask them, Why?
Weiss is looking forward to introducing his own songs to the general public via his new CD, 23rd And Stout, which hits stores today (Mar. 13).
