message from Jimmy Horowitz|
When I first met Chris in the seventies, he was doing sessions in London, and I was very impressed with both his technique and his wonderful emotional feel for the music. I wanted to use him on Lesley Duncan's recordings in 1972. However, when she met him, she mistook his shyness for aloofness and moodiness, and was reluctant to have him continue.
However, I encouraged her to let him continue, and, as she got to know him better,
she became very fond of him. Of course, I was delighted,
as I knew that his playing would bring a greater "edge" or "urgency to Lesley's work,
without detracting from it's essential gentleness and sensitivity.
He had, at that time, a wonderful lyric quality in his solos which few other guitarists
seem to have. This, I believe is a quality of greatness,
and which is why players like Eric clapton and Stevie Ray Vaugn became so greatly loved.
I have a funny story about Chris:
