Mighty Chuck Young

That's what we called him back around 1975.  Sad to hear of passing of Charles M. Young on Monday after long battle with cancer. I gave him his writing start at Crawdaddy with dangerous piece about his infiltration of Lyndon LaRouche group (I think he had a cousin or brother in the group) before anyone had heard of LaRouche.  He then wrote for us for another year--including first cover story anywhere on Joan Jett and the Runaways--or two pre-Rolling Stone.  Became famous there for coverage of Sex Pistols and more. Also played on our softball team.  Fun and funny guy.  R.I.P.
