In 1972, Charlie started touring as The Charlie Daniels Band, letting it be known that while it's his band, they are indeed a BAND and not just a backup to him as a solo performer. The initial lineup included keyboard player William Joel DiGregorio, who later became known as "Taz," bass player Earl Grigsby, and drummer Jeffrey Meyer. The lineup changed several times over the band's history, but Charlie was always at the center of it until July 6, 2020. Charlie may be gone, but all throughout 2022, we are celebrating 50 years since The Charlie Daniels Band first took the stage! More will be added to this CDB history timeline soon, so keep checking back!
