At 13, Chubby began playing drums; shortly thereafter, he discovered the music of the Rolling Stones and began playing guitar.

By the time he was in his early twenties, he enjoyed and played blues music, but also worked for a while backing punk poet Richard HellChubby‘s first big break was winning a national blues talent search sponsored by KLON, a public radio station in Long Beach, California. He won the New Artist of the Year award and opened at the Long Beach Blues Festival in 1992.
