David Chalmers started his
professional career in the rock and roll business in 1967 playing lead guitar
for "Butterscotch Grove", managed by Irv Azoff present manager of; Eagles, Joe
Walsh, and REO Speedwagon.
During those years of the 60s and early 70s Irv took the band through the
notoriously wild days when rock and roll icon's ruled the musical scene and
pandemonium and coincidence charted the course of their destiny. These days of
riotous rock and roll are being captured by one of the band members who
presently is writing a book about these experiences.
Dave Chalmers moved on to further develop an opening in the playing field of
his dynamic creativity by forming "The Dave Chalmers Band", touring the
Midwest in the late 70s, and early 80s and performing with countless top name
bands: Journey, Tom Petty, Climax Blues Band, and The Outlaws just to
name a few.
Columbia, and Capitol/United Artists Records snapped up the option of
distributing three albums of original music recorded by The Dave Chalmers
Band. A fourth published album and a fifth acoustic LP was placed on the back
burner and never released.
Always a little ahead of his time, Dave Chalmers is busy working in his sound
studio in California, on new sounds in his musical world he hopes to release
in the year 2000.
In 1970, David Chalmers started The Same Old Music Publishing Co., B.M.I.
Several small Independent
Labels have used S.O.M. Publishing Company. During the early 70's and
into the middle of the 80's many published works were
released. These were marketed and distributed by Columbia, Capital, Decca and
other such Distributors. As usual, Same Old Music is in a new and
innovative growth pattern.
