Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chris Gaffney (October 3, 1950 - April 17, 2008) was an American singer and songwriter from the Southwest. His career, both as a solo musician and as a member of several bands, was as eclectic as his musical tastes. Although he never achieved widespread fame, Gaffney, who died at the age of 57 from liver cancer, left his mark on country, rock, soul, and other forms of American music. In its obituary, the LA Times described Gaffney as "a peer of Da Alvin, Los Lobos, X and the Red Hot Chili Peppers in chronicling the life of Southern California." A self-described "army brat," Christopher F. Gaffney was born in Vienna, Austria, he then moved to Livorno, Italy and New York as a young child. But Gaffney grew up primarily in southern California and Arizona. In addition to music, Gaffney loved sports, especially boxing, and earned an LA Golden Gloves championship in 1967 and even trained with boxing hall-of-famer Jackie McCoy.show more
