CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Chris Cain Relief Fund

Friends and fans, thank you, thank you, thank you....for all your generous contributions to Chris Cain. Dave and I are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support this site has generated from friends and fans all over the country. I hope to print out a complete list of all the donors for Chris to see, along with all your kind words of encouragement and appreciation for the amazing man that Chris is. Thank you to those of you who have shared this to others as well. Please keep the love coming. -Tracy Pain Subscribe to Updates A message from Dave Mathews (bandmate and longtime close friend of Chris Cain): Due to some recent sudden personal changes in his life, Chris Cain has fallen on hard times. All of his fans need to know that as great a musician and as wonderful a person as Chris is, he struggles to make ends meet in day to day life and needs all of your support right now. In spite of his tremendous talent, Chris never has a lot of money. It's difficult for him to travel (he doesn't drive), he can't get enough gigs to pay his bills, and he struggles to keep the business end of things together. And, to top it off, Chris is now faced with the financial challenge of moving after being in the same place for years. That's just not his way; he's about MUSIC. Chris is a genius on many levels besides music, incredibly funny, witty, an incredible mimic of some of our most beloved celebrities from the 60's thru today, well read, very observant of humanity in general, and loyal to ALL of his many fans. I'm a friend, but I've also always been a fan, since the first time I heard him play, in about 1981 (although I didn't get to play with him until about '87). I love Chris like a brother, and try to play with him whenever I can. Myself, along with Chris' longtime friends, Louis and Tracy Pain, set this site up so his many fans can give back what he's given to us all these years. Our goal is to get Chris some funds needed to give him a fresh start as he goes through a difficult phase in his life. Please donate what you can. Every dollar helps. If you are unable to donate, you can also help Chris in other ways. PLEASE come out and support him whenever you can. Buy his CDs, hire him for a private party, whatever you can do for this amazing artist and human being...let's raise the roof for Chris! All the more reason to try and help our very gifted friend sooner than later..... Thank you, David K Mathews
