CHRIS SINGS A TRACK ON HIS FRIENDS NEW CD



Chris' friend  from the
Netherlands, 'Leigh Blond' has just released his new CD 'Blueside of the Road', on which Chris sings one of his songs. The track written by Leigh is called 'Cold Heart'. It's a great song and ideal for Chris' voice. Chris can be heard saying he only wants three things in life and lots of it! that is:  FAME, WINE and WOMEN. (Not sure how much he needs!).

Chris last sang one of Leigh's songs '
Only You' on 'Farlowe That!' on which Leigh also played guitar.

Click - here   for a sample of '
Cold Heart'.
