I met Chris when he was on tour with Paul Butterfield in his Better Days band. We hung out after the show and took pictures of each other on my camera...

I reconnected with Chris when I was putting my book, Everybody I Shot Is Dead, and have seen him play on several occasions since. Here's a shot I took of him more recently and actually caught him playing.
Here's a recent video of Chris playing with his current band, the Chris Parker Trio.
