Letter from Chris

Thu, Jun 6, 2013 at 1:53 PM by matt (ctrl)

To Our Fans,

As you might know we are getting ready to go on tour. I wanted to let you know that my longtime partner in fun and swinging, drummer Kenney Dale Johnson, will not be coming on tour with us this summer. He is at home being treated for cancer but we expect he'll be better and back on his drum throne soon. We'll keep you updated on his progress. In the meantime send some love and good wishes Kenney’s way. This is the first time in almost thirty years that Kenney’s missed a day’s work.

We all miss him already - nobody more than me...so hurry and get well, Kenney. We need you and we love you!

Thanks, Chris Isaak

    Hi Kenney,

    I hope you're feeling better. I met you in Atlanta where we talked about Gram Parsons growing up in Waycross, GA. Hope to see you on stage again soon!

    Kenney,

    Been seeing Chris and the band for just about 30 years, every chance I get. I also make a point of bring new people to see you all and I feel like I have created some new fans, young and old. My daughter and her very blond friend and I bought you a Stoli once at Pechanga. When I brought some newbies to Humphrey's on the Bay this summer I was so disappointed to see that you were not sitting behind your set ready to rock. I hope you are doing well and healing and will be back to kick some more R & R ass really soon!

    Hi Kenney, I was thrilled to chat with you occasionally on AOL back in 1996/7, and was delighted to meet you for a few minutes after a gig in Wolverhampton. I hope you are well on the way to full recovery and a return to that drum stool. All the very best.
