About Chappell

In 2014 father and son joined forces to cultivate a sound that could only be created through loss, struggle and the love of rhythm. Chris Pyle and his father Artimus Pyle, drummer of Lynyrd Skynyrd (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2006) have come together to form Chappell…whose music can only be described as Southern Fried Tribal Boogie!!

Chris worked as his father’s Drum Tech on the Skynyrd Tribute Tour, drummed for Royal Trux and traveled through India and Africa absorbing the roots of rhythm. After years of drumming for multiple working bands Chris has stepped out front to sing his songs. The heart of Chappell’s music comes from his unique perspective of growing up in the trenches of rock and roll to dodging Molotov cocktails in Jerusalem, Israel.

Chappell is:
Artimus Pyle – Drums
Chris Pyle – Guitar, Vocals, Percussion
Craig Boykin – Bass
Matt Lane – Lead Guitar
Owen Aschoff – Percussion



What Passengers Think

RLC 6 was our 5th Rock Legends Cruise, can not wait for RLC 7. Best. Time. Ever.

John R., Great cause, great music John R., Great cause, great music

We were first time cruiser’s. Definitely the BEST vacation ever!!! Five of the most relaxing, stress free, days of a fun filled vacation.. We cannot say enough… the ship was clean, well managed, and beautiful.. venues were excellent. Rock Legend’s did an excellent job with the line up…loved ALL the music we could see and the goodies with the Rock Legends Cruise were very well thought out.

Thanks to everyone for the memories..hope we can do it again someday soon.
