Hi Everyone – Chris has moved from the hospital & is apparently in good spirits today in his new place of abode. I haven’t seen him yet as I have to work (well, ‘try to work’ may be more accurate), but I think I’m seeing him tonight so I’ll have fresh news tomorrow.
Hey me and the family and friends really appreciate that people haven’t been prying into what’s happening too much – obviously this is a very private time for us. We understand that Chris is much loved & that people want to know the details, but strokes seem to be about waiting and seeing, and what few details there are are just for us at the moment.
Today I’ve been thinking a lot about cool moments with Chris – tracking vocals for the first Nothing album (he really did uh ‘blow my mind’); horribly drunk on Jamiesons’ in a freezing spa pool in Nelson with Stefan & Jol (The Nothing); a gig in Parua Bay where he made me cringe in front of the entire bar (with a point that is not open for discussion here); endless Beatle sessions; plus all the music & books & films & beer & dinners & times he’s pissed me off by calling me on my bullshit (which, funnily enough, I would always end up coming back for more of) etc etc etc….. so it’s great to see from your comments that he’s connected with so many others over the years …….. yup, and here’s to all the good times yet to come with Mr Knox …..
…. everyone go and down yer favourite beverage with CK in mind (chink to all)!!
