Devastated to have lost my dear friend, Chris Burroughs, on Monday. We were bandmates in Hardpan, but our friendship went well beyond the music. I don’t have the words right now to properly do honor to who he was as a person, or to his talent as a musician and songwriter. But I will say that his friendship meant a great deal to me, and I know that my life was made much richer through knowing him. I will miss him deeply. My heart breaks for his wife Kelly, and son Henry. I can’t imagine what these next days will be like for them. Even if you don’t know them personally, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Today as we celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday, I’ll be thankful for the time I had with Chris, and for the music we created together. And I’ll be thankful for all those I care about who are still in my life. Life can change in an instant, we need to hold onto each other while we’re able. Wishing all of you peace and happiness. R.I.P. Chris Burroughs. Love you brother.
