R.I.P. Chris Gaffney, October 3, 1950-April 17, 2008
A sad day for Western Soul. Chris Gaffney, singer, songwriter and accordionist, passed away a few days ago after a brief battle with liver cancer.
Most recently, Chris was the lead singer of the Hacienda Brothers, a country soul band based out of Tuscon, Arizona. Anyone who was lucky enough to see Chris perform know he sang the songs the way they had to be: with direct, honest emotion.

The Years That Got Away: "I never saw them coming, I never felt them leave, they came and went just like a whisp of smoke upon the breeze."
He will be greatly missed.
