Hello!?

Post by rs4951 »

It is sad that this place is so quiet and that there is no news on Chris. Of course I understand his preference for privacy and his illness challenges, but would love to know that he is doing well on the health angle and, musically, would like to hear more about any more Rhino activity or new material....

Yes, a sad thing that his management team have never bothered to communicate since the collapse back in 2017 but hey at least we know he is alive. I hope he has a happy retirement

I read on Facebook groups, Chris Rea will show up around the 13th of December on BBC 2, a fishing program.
Searching for a link....A christmas edition:

Did any of you see Gone Fishing?
It was about 5 minutes and Chris didn't look worse or better as 3 years ago.
He has lost a kidney I understood that is new and Joan is the one who owns the money that his music brings in.
He told what Christmas meant to him.
It's still repeating on the bbc for 2 times.
I haven't found a YT video yet.

Thank you for the update; I missed the programme.

Pity he didn’t feel up to promoting the recent release, it didn’t make the UK top 100 ( although it did chart briefly at #60 in the physical sales chart)

If you miss online commentary and discussion on Chris, the stevehoffman music forum has some threads about Chris. Well worth reading. You will also find links to a guy who blogged reviews about the 2019 reissues.

One such thread:
