David Chalmers Band / Bio

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.

David Chalmers Collectors Edition albums are available by request. If you would like one please specify which album and quantity desired.

The entire David Chalmers music catalog is also available through
