As with many '60s artists, major-label accounting practices show nothing but red ink some 40 years later. "We've not seen one cent from any of the reissues of our albums or any of the licensing of our songs for use in films and television," says Chad Stuart, phoning from his home in Idaho.
Chad & Jeremy's current tour takes them to mostly 500-seat rooms, where they play a mix of old and new material. The one big stop is at Cleveland's Moondog Coronation Ball at Quicken Loans Arena, where they share the bill with such oldies as the Association and Blood, Sweat & Tears.
"We're touched by the reaction some people have to our early songs," explains Stuart. "But nostalgia is not our motive in reuniting, and we hope our new songs also find an audience."
