One of the Greatest Hits on Earth is “Tequila” by [lastfm]The Champs[/lastfm], a local bunch of guys who have had a star-studded line-up through the years serving as a springboard for members of [lastfm]Seals & Croft’s[/lastfm] (Diamond Girl) and legendary guitar player [lastfm]Glenn Campbell[/lastfm].
Although the latter came after the number one hit “Tequila”, not playing on the instrumental with one shout out of TEQUILA! At the end.
The originator of the group [lastfm]Chuck Rio[/lastfm] recently passed away, I remember receiving a call from his daughter informing us of her fathers passing.
Another interesting note about the group is how they got their name, they were on a record label once owned by The Singing Cowboy [lastfm]Gene Autry[/lastfm] whose horse was named champion hence “The Champs”.
Thanks for listening and reading!
