b. 11 July 1929, Santa Paula, California, USA, d. 19 Sept 2006, Huntington Seaside, California, USA. Flores’ parents had been immigrant Mexican field employees but he had taken to music, playing saxophone and composing modern Latin music, which he ably combined with nascent rock and roll. He performed beneath the name Chuck Rio even though moderately successful, it had been through his songwriting that he produced his a long lasting impact, owing mainly to one melody. The music group was support hillbilly vocalist Dave Burgess on the recording time and, therefore the tale goes, after placing down ‘A Teach To Nowhere’ they required something for the b-side. Flores developed a riff over the piano, the music group joined up with in and Flores sang out the melody’s one-word lyric: ‘Tequila’. This is a major strike in 1958, for the Champs. The causing sales must have produced Flores an extremely wealthy man. However, he was an extremely critical drinker and marketed his US privileges to the melody for much-needed prepared cash, therefore depriving himself of a considerable lifelong income. Luckily, he held non-US rights as well as the music’s popularity all over the world was economically beneficial although occasionally the income was hard to get.
