Chas Chandler

Chas Chandler made major contributions to '60s British rock as a musician, producer, and manager. He was the bass player for the original Animals, in the lineups that were most responsible for their greatest material. He made a greater impact, though, as co-manager and producer of the Jimi Hendrix Experience from 1966 to 1968, and also struck a goldmine as the producer/manager of Slade in the '70s, although that group never made it in America and was of trivial significance next to the Animals or Hendrix.
