Manfred Ropschitz (Roxon) 13.5.08

I kinda knew Chris through mutual mates, Warren Colman (one-time voice of G-d UK blues guitarist) and John Altman (ex-Climax Blues and now Hollywood music man).

My strongest memory of Chris was on stage at Sussex Uni, dressed in a duffel coat, shaggy hair and beard (?), delving into deep pockets to find harps in the right key. It must have been 1969 or 70 when I was working as a gardener at Falmer, but I can't recall the exact occasion or line-up, except that John Altman was there and possibly Pete Wingfield on joanna.

Very sorry to hear Chris is no more.

Love,

Manfred
