“There have been many times that I wanted to yell a "Preach on Brother Chuk!" or "Lawd, yes, tell it! Tell it!" at a CCDH concert, lol. Chuk is a minister to the masses of unwashed, unloved, beat down, rejected and toxically infected..., bringing the Light of Love and Hope and of Faith in something more and something better than what they can see today. An Injection of Inspiration to overcome their own adversity by clinging to the fact that Chuk was once in the same position, face down, nose full of dirt and restriction. And God Bless him for being Honest. And God bless him for saying at every show "Just in case you haven't had someone tell you today, Chuk Cooley and the Demon Hammers fukin love you!" A CCDH show is church, and rock n roll, and party rolled into one. But I think that is what heaven is like anyway”
