Sad news about Chris Knox of Tall Dwarfs

The Daily Swarm relays the news from various New Zealand sources:

New Zealand rock musician Chris Knox is unable to talk after suffering a stoke on Thursday.

He had apparently been able to drink water and answer basic questions while being taken to hospital, Kean told The Dominion Post.

And here’s a line from the family’s statement, which you can read on the blog they created for updates and comments:

Chris is not in pain and is responsive to family and friends who are very optimistic and focused on Chris’s well being. He enjoyed his vegetable frittata this morning but I suffered the classic Knox withering look when I mentioned beer.

The Tall Dwarfs’ last album, The Sky Above, the Mud Below, was my No. 2 favorite of 2003.
