    I saw him at the studio we practice at maybe a year ago. I had no idea it was him. He looked pretty fucking scary I thought he was a homeless guy honestly. But that's just how he looks now apparently. I just had no idea.

    I love Chris.

    By all accounts, he always was a gentle giant, even when intoxicated.
    His scene in the Decline DVD will forever be the greatest moment.
    I guess Sandy Holmes is still residing in a lounge chair, pool-side, somewhere
    in Los Angeles.

    I actually got to meet Chris at L'Amour during his WASP heyday. I forgot what concert it was but he was there just walking around the floor. My buddy pointed him out as he was walking by so I said, "Hey Chris". That dude came right over and shot the shit like it was nothing. Very cool and mellow dude. We weren't even fans but we hung with him and had drinks for a bit. Gentle giant indeed.

    Very cool story, man!

    During the dialogue/comments feature, during the Decline movie, they all mention how sweet
    Chris actually was in person, during the infamous vodka scene.

    He kinda reminds me of the late Robbin Crosby from Ratt, in a way.
    Nice guys, big guys, but a bit damaged by drugs & booze.

    Yeah he was just shooting the shit with us outside. Totally down to earth guy, really friendly. He obviously knew a lot of people but I figured he was just one of those guys who kicked around the scene here. I don't know WASP's music at all really so I wouldn't know him especially now. Found out afterwards it was him. The studio guy was surprised I didn't know it was him, but he looked pretty scary. Haha.

    I kinda dug the first WASP record.

    Chris played some cool leads on that record.

    I also love the vintage Eddie connection with the Destroyers.
