Pipeline 45 by The Chantays

The Chantays were formed in high school by Bob Spickard, Brian Carman, Bob Welch, Warren Waters, and Rob Marshall during 1961.

During early 1963 they produced one of the better surf instrumentals of the 1960s. “Pipeline” was surf music on steroids as the dual guitars and electric keyboards create wave after wave of sound. It was a big hit reaching number four on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.

The Chantays never had another top 100 hit so they joined the list of one-hit wonders. Despite that fact, Spickard, Carman, and Welch plus three other long-tern members are still out on the road nearly 50 years after their big hit.
