The man behind The Champs' one and only hit (a massive one, mind you – No.1 in the US, No.5 in the UK) was Danny Flores, who played the wild sax solo and blurted out "tequila!", as you do. But Flores was under contract elsewhere and the writing credit had to go to one 'Chuck Rio'. Still, his salsa-tinged instrumental lives on, a cheeky soundtrack to shenanigans the world over.
