Chris Knox Is Home


After a series of somewhat excruciating updates–hand signals, the occasional word, learning to write again–Chris Knox’s blog has a bit of good news: Knox is out of the hospital. Nothing guitarist Roy Martyn writes that Knox is “in good spirits today in his new place of abode”–great to hear, considering that only a week ago, doctors still seemed to have no idea about Knox’s long-term chances for recovery after the lo-fi/Flying Nun icon suffered a calamitous stroke. “Strokes seem to be about waiting and seeing,” writes Martyn, “and what few details there are are just for us at the moment.” So Knox isn’t out of the woods yet. But at least he’s home. [Chris Knox]
