I am so so sorry about Chris. This is an incredible loss and I’m praying for you and your family right now. We had only met once, but I’ve known your brother for years.
He was such an amazing person, guitarist and friend. I’ve attached some of my favourite photos of him from when we first met and will be doing a tribute to him on X92.9 this Sunday on Xposure
I first met him during an Azeda Booth interview I was doing for school. The guys hadn’t seen each other in a while so the interview was scattered as we drove in the van down to their show at Broken City. However, Chris sat calmly in the back seat answering my questions with such composure that contrasted so well with the energy from the others.
Rum milkshakes were always an inside joke between us. He suggested we go out for rum milkshakes after we had met and well… let’s just say they’re not as delicious as they sound.
Another favourite memory I have of him was when I asked “So Chris, what do you do?” his reply “…Women”
Always brings a smile to my face when I think about that.
I didn’t see much of Chris when Women embarked on their lengthy tours, and then continuing on with The Dodos. But he was back in Calgary and I was running into him all over town as if he had never left. Only now he had better stories and new projects to wow us with.
His departure is an incredible loss. He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.
Lots of love,
