Born on January 11, 1935 in Chicago, Chuck Barksdale is one of the original members of the R&B group the Dells. The Dells (originally known as the El-Rays) were formed in 1952 at Thornton High School in Harvey, Illinois, while the five members (Marvin Junior, Johnny Funches, Verne Allison, Michael McGill and Barksdale) were students.

The group's first hit came in 1956 with "Oh What a Night" which they also famously performed at the Apollo Theater in New York. Although the Dells were a doo-wop group they had continued success all the way through the 1990s. The group was inducted to both the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
