Charley is a great influencer and had met every US President since the time of Gerald Ford, except the current one. Talking about his entry and stay in the music industry, Charley said once:
“In this country, there are certain things you just don’t mention, cause it just ain’t good for you … Most of the time I back off and see if I can find another way other than confrontation. I deviate. That’s the way I did it. That’s the way I still do it. It’s the way I live my whole life.”
