Positive uncertainty

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 11:53 am

Hi All – We’ve had meetings with health care specialists this week. Chris is making progress but he has had a major stroke and the recovery process will continue to be slow. It’s tempting to try and guess the future but it is still pretty unclear. Chris’ days are spent working intensively on his recovery and the evenings are for hanging-out with family & friends. Poker is still the game of the moment. Chris is usually in a good mood &, although frustrated at times, is enjoying a reasonable quality of life.

We’re working to bring together the album of Chris’ songs – I had a song arrive on my desk from Nashville this morning. It’s a neat feeling knowing that people through-out NZ and around the world are working away on a track for Chris as I write.The cover is going to be a combination of Alec & Chris’ art. Hopefully in the next post I’ll be able to confirm some of the artists we’ve got lined up.

    Just want to say hi on behalf of myself and 4ZZZ-FM in Brisbane. I don’t work there anymore, but I did in the early 90s and getting Chris to play for us was the highlight of my time there. I’ll always remember a package of…stuff…bus-tickets, receipts, magazine clippings etc, that Chris posted us after his tour. And those yellow banana zed shorts he wore.
    I discovered Tall Dwarfs at around 16 years old and like another commenter I read before it changed my life too. So having him play in my town a few years later was indescribable. Lindsay from the NZ show is still going strong.
    Get better Chris. We’re thinking of you.

    Aww, c’mon! Pull through, Chris! You’ve got the support of all your fans across the world. I’m from the state of Washington (that’s in the United States), and you make me love New Zealand so much. You introduced me to the Flying Nun record label, which has produced a multitude of fantastic bands (but none quite as good as Tall Dwarfs, not kissing ass, just being honest!) When it comes to stuff that makes New Zealand at least slightly well-known back in the states, Tall Dwarfs totally beats The Lord of the Rings.
