When Negron was growing up, he played basketball and also sang in local doo-wop groups. He played for William Howard Taft High School’s basketball team and it led him to be recruited by Allan Hancock College after matriculating. He then moved to California State University, Los Angeles and played basketball there too.
In 1962, Chuck’s friend Danny Hutton invited him to help create the band Three Dog Night. Their popularity started to rise in the 1960s, and it led them to increase their net worth significantly.
Throughout the ‘60s and the ‘70s they would sell approximately 60 million albums. They achieved gold certifications for songs such as “Joy to the World”, “Easy to be Hard” and “One”. The band featured a lot of songs from songwriters who would eventually make it big in the industry as well. Over the course of their success, they scored 12 gold albums and 21 consecutive Billboard Top 40 hits. However, the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle would severely affect Negron, eventually leading to the band’s disbandment in 1976; he had developed a serious heroin addiction, and was later arrested for cocaine possession. The band was later reformed but it went on numerous iterations. Chuck would return to the band in 1981 before leaving again in 1985, and it wasn’t until 1991 that Chuck overcame his addiction.
After his return to the music industry, he started releasing solo albums, which include “Am I Still In Your Heart?”, “Long Road Back”, “The Chuck Negron Story”, and “Joy to the World”, and his net worth continued to build up thanks to his solo endeavors. He also continued to do tours, mainly with a backing band, which led to the release of a few live albums.
He also wrote an autobiography, released in 1999 entitled “Three Dog Nightmare”, and told the story of his heroin addiction, recovery, and return to God. He dropped out and into more than 30 drug treatment facilities trying to recover. In 2006, he was featured in an episode of the reality show “Intervention”, which aired on the A&E channel, and featured celebrities who were or had been addicted or dependent – Chuck appeared on the show with his son.
