He revitalized his song writing in the late 80’s when he worked in France as lyricist for producer Franck Langolf (Vanessa Paradis) and helped brother Mick on the Stones acclaimed albums Dirty Work and Steel Wheels. Chris decided to then concentrate on his own material with contributions from Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Leo Sayer, and brother Mick. Chris and his band performed on the Conan O’Brien Show for NBC, as well as the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2007. In 2009 Chris released the critically acclaimed album, The Ridge.
