Originally from the Bronx, CHUCK NEGRON moved to L.A. to play college basketball but found success in musical instead. In 1968 he formed Three Dog Night with Cory Wells and Danny Hutton. They had 18 consecutive hits, including "One (Is the Loneliest Number)," "Joy to the World," "Mama Told Me Not to Come," and "Black and White." The band split in 1977, and Negron struggled with drug addiction; after 36 unsuccessful experiences in rehab programs he restarted his musical career in 1994 and has since toured and recorded a solo album, and written two books detailing his career and drug addiction. Negron also works with anti-drug organizations including Musicians Assistance Program (MAP), MusiCares, and Cri-Help.
