Chris has recently been diagnosed with cancer, sadly.
Saw him play just down the road from my joint only about a month ago.

I just read about this in The Age, very sad news for a good artist and a good bloke.

I do not know if I will be able to make the benefit, but I will buy a ticket anyway.

Terrible news. I thought he looked rather unwell last time I saw him here in Hobart.

The gofundme is being stopped today at Chris's request so if you are planning to donate now is the time.

The response has been very good, and the benefit concert sold out quickly.

And the amount that they wished to raise on GoFundMe has been reached, so that is great

Which is a good indicator of the respect that Chris has far and wide

There’s also a benefit in Geelong.
