Chuck Negron was born on June 8, 1942, in Manhattan to Charles Negron and Elizabeth Rooke. When Negron was five years old, his father, a nightclub singer, and his mother divorced. Negron and his twin sister, Nancy, were placed in an orphanage by their mother but she took them back two years later.
Negron grew up in The Bronx, where he sang in local doo-wop groups and played basketball both in schoolyard pick-up games and at William Howard Taft High School. The latter talent led to his being recruited to play basketball at Allan Hancock College, a small community college in Santa Maria, California; later, he played at California State University, Los Angeles.
In 1967, singer Danny Hutton invited Negron to join him and Cory Wells to found the band Three Dog Night. The group became one of the most successful bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s, selling approximately 60 million records and earning gold records for such songs as "One", "Easy To Be Hard", and "Joy to the World".  Negron was primary vocalist on the hits "One", "Easy To Be Hard", "Joy to the World", "Pieces Of April", "Old Fashioned Love Song", and "The Show Must Go On".
The rock and roll lifestyle took its toll on Negron, and by the time Three Dog Night disbanded in 1976, Negron had a serious heroin addiction which began in the early 1970s. In July 1975, the British music magazine, NME, reported that Negron had been arrested for cocaine possession in Kentucky. He overcame his addiction in September 1991 and embarked on a solo career, recording the albums:
He wrote his autobiography, Three Dog Nightmare (1999), in which he describes his life as a high school athlete, member of a successful rock band, and drug addict. In the book, he discusses his descent into drug abuse and attributes his recovery from heroin addiction to his turning to God in desperation, after dropping out from more than thirty drug treatment facilities. A revised edition with several new chapters was released in 2008, with an updated version released in 2018.
Negron has been married three times. He was married to Paula Louise Ann Goetten from 1970-73. They had one daughter, Shaunti Negron-Levick. In 1976, he married Julia Densmore, the former wife of The Doors drummer John Densmore. They were married for twelve years,  with Chuck stepping into the role of step dad for her son, Berry Duane Oakley, Jr.  They also had a son, Charles Negron III (Chuckie).
In 1993, Negron married Robin Silna. They had a daughter, Charlotte Rose Negron, and they divorced in 2001.
On August 5th 2019 Chuck proposed to long-time girlfriend and manager, Ami Albea who accepted in this YouTube Video. http://www.popflock.com/video?id=C-gVp-ohqLM
