    I am so sorry to here about Chris. I met him just few times. He came to the open mic I was hosting several years back in Hillsboro, IL and was such a fine performer with an amazing and versatile voice. I also saw him a few times at the Stagger Inn. Such a contributor to the music scene, he’ll be so missed.
