Chris Knox suffers stroke and may not walk again
FRIENDS OF Kiwi music icon Chris Knox say he is now unable to speak and may not walk again after suffering a stroke three days ago. A spokesperson for Knox's family said the 57-year-old had a stroke on Thursday and was recovering at Auckland City Hospital. "We'd just like to say that Chris' partner Barbara Ward and his children John and Leisha are grateful for the support and love they've received, and at the moment everyone's focus is just on Chris and his recovery, and we just ask that people be respectful of that." The spokesperson would not confirm any details about Knox's condition. However, it is understood the medical prognosis was grim.
My best wishes to Chris and his family, it is a sad day for NZ culture and a sadder day for the many people who call Chris friend, myself included. Kia Kaha Chris.
