SURF MUSIC and Beyond
THE CHANTAYS Next Set
THE CHANTAYS - Waiting for the Tide CD
It all started in 1961 when five high school buddies decided to start their own band. Bob Spickard, Brian Carman (co-writers of Pipeline), Bob Welch, Warren Waters and Rob Marshall were all students at Santa Ana High School in California, when they were inspired by a local group called The Rhythm Rockers. Spickard and Carman liked to listen to them practice and decided it was time they should learn to play guitar and get their own band together. Spickard and Carman were joined by Welch on drums, Waters on bass and Marshall on piano forming The Chantays™.
Written in 1962 by Bob Spickard & Brian Carman when they were just seniors in high school, Pipeline is one of the most recognized surf guitar instrumentals in music history.
The Chantays were inducted into Hollywood's Rock Rock Walk on April 12, 1996.
