(19**-) South African musician and director of musicals.

In 2003 he and Louis Moller joined forces to form the Barnyard Theatre Production Company, through which Chowles directs and produces all Barnyard Theatres productions.

Quoted from the Roll Over Beethoven programme notes in ****: 'Duck formed his first gig band when he was still at school and went on to play lead guitar for bands ranging in style from country and western to rock. He studied Argiculture and worked on dairy farms for eight years, but music finally won and he ran his own recording studio, for recording soundtracks for films and jingles. Duck, a phenomenal performer and vocalist moved on to stage his tribute to the Rolling Stones called Sticky Fingers and later joined the hit show Sixty Something, to become recognised as the chameleon of Rock and Roll. In 1995 Duck released his debut album Duc the Fox and is at present establishing his own record label for South African music, called Wild Horses Music.'
