    He went on to other musical projects and politics. But there was an article about him in Rolling Stone about how he quit the music biz. Hold on... I gotta go get a link for you.

    Everything Kris did in the music biz

    As for what he's done politically, someone else will know. But I know he became heavily involved in politics and that's what he's doing now.

    Chris is a smart guy.......I'm sure he can afford to retire! When his last band Eyes Adrift failed, he probably just got sick of the whole record biz.

    I saw a picture in a local newspaper about him. He's half bald now, and the caption said something like, "I used to play in a band, and now I drink beer."

    Eyes Adrift was a cool band. Too bad they went nowhere, but then again, cool bands don't really cut the mustard anymore.

    I loved his playing/anti-technique on Nirvana's Bleach. Great opening riff - nasty tone. I love it!

    No, not at all...

    It's just a matter of priorities.

    Im not sure how he feels now but at several points in his life he didnt drink because he believed it would ruin people.

    Being where he was in the rock 'n roll world, Im sure he saw a lot of evidence of that.
