I have known Chris for over 55 years since we were both middle schoolers in Illinois. He was raised by a loving mother and his father was a college professor, air force veteran, who moved his family from base to base. He is the oldest of his 4 siblings and was always a great role model for the others as they grew up.
In high school Chris played many a rock festival and smokey bar each weekend. He has had great experiences of opening up for Queen, Cheap Trick, REO, Three Dog Night, Aerosmith, Dan Fogelberg, Eddie Money and more. He was even given a jean jacket from Bob Dylan as well as having the Eagles crash at his apartment. He has been fortunate enough to make some good friends along the way and have some great memories.
