After a valiant three year battle, Cincinnati bass guitarist and funk warrior Chris Walker succumbed on Saturday to the injuries he sustained in a car crash back in 2007. He leaves with us a legacy of wonderful memories, all joy, laughter and dancing.
I wrote about my friend and brother back in August of last year when I traveled to Cincy to play at a Friends for Chris Walker benefit concert. His sister, Carole, and the many musical friends Chris cultivated over the years held periodic performances to help pay the former working musician’s medical bills.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 10 in Cincinnati. Rest in The Funk, my brother.
