Like Fred, Chris and I were very close friends back in Italy in 1972-4. I actually flew over with Chris on the same plane to Rome. I wanted to get in touch a while back but was unable to find him. We used to sing when he played his classical guitar; he loved at that time playing Neil Young, the song “ Old Man Take A Look At My Life”; he was a great guitarist! I will miss him! He will be in my prayers. Prayers always for you Chris, love & Prayers, your friend, Ray
