Words for Chris Stein


Portrait by Brian Walsby


Very sad news from California.

Chris Stein of Saccharine Trust and Carnage Asada has passed away after a long battle with cancer. Chris was an extraordinary musician; I was honored to share the stage with him many times during my Los Angeles/Sixth Chamber days. He was also an incredibly nice man; I'm grateful to have reconnected with him late last year.

I have a lot of beautiful memories attached to music featuring Chris' talents. Many of us do. Love and condolences to my friends who knew Chris and made great sounds with him.

Saccharine Trust is on my turntable as the sun goes down...
