Chris Rea

British singer and guitarist Chris Rea enjoyed a run of popularity in Europe during the late '80s and early '90s after almost a decade of previous recording. Rea started out performing with a local group called Magdalene, taking David Coverdale's place; the band won a national talent contest in 1975 as the Beautiful Losers, kicking off a fairly high-profile U.K. career. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

We're all entitled to our own opinions (dontlike), but for me Chris Rea is one of the greatest talents ever.

Chris Rea a talented gifted musician.A shame his music wasn't around here in the U.S. Extrodiary!

wore out my cassette of 'Road to Hell' in my '79 Pinto!!!
Love Chris. Terrible bio. Go to Wiki to learn a bit about him.
I love Chris. One of the best voices ever. Why the empty bio? Go to Wikipedia to learn something about him.
I just love his music
Chris plays great soundtrack stuff, he should think of it
Drove through Wales and south England listening to On the Beach in 86.
Saw Chris live in Holland back in 1991, what a great concert.
Tell Me There's a Heaven crushes my wife
A Knopfler contemporary - worth the visit
great voice
A favorite musician of mine for years, why the short bio?
i lost my only copy of La Passione. who will send me one?
Chris is one my favorite unheard of artists, wink wink. I was hoping to see Nothing to Fear on here and pretty much his entire album portfolio so I can build my collection up.
was turned unto Chris in the early 90's during a sting in Saudia Arabia have loved him ever since

What can I say, I'v gone from Texas to the UK 14 times just to see Chris Rea....
I got into Chris back in the late 80's. Some of the best times of my life associated with his music. Some of the best driving music ever!! A true hidden gem!!
in Texas we still play his Song Texas sort of a blues anthem!
I started listening to Chris about 5 yrs ago...fell in love with his music. He's simply the best artist I have ever listened to.
Love Chris Rea! He's got an amazing voice! Fool If You Think It's Over is, and will always be, my fav Chris Rea song. And, thanks to Pandora, I've fallen in love with his other amazing songs. Where's he been all my life?

I first heard Chris Rea in Birmingham ( UK ). I got some tickets from a friend and thought I was going to see Chris De Burgh! I`m glad it was Chris Rea who since then has been my favorite singer/music i a n . I play him almost every day. He is truly great!
One of the world's great musical secrets. Gets no airplay in U.S., but that's of no note since I quit listening to the radio 15 years ago. Too much talk, too little music. Road to hell, Stainsby Girls, Working, Let's Dance. Amazing on the slide. Love his attention to social consciousnes s , which is probably one of the reasons he doesn't get much radio airplay. Pity.
I used to listen to Chris Album On The Beach as I drove through the Midlands and Wales when I was stationed in England in 86. Awesome driving music!
The unique combination of his sometimes haunting lyrics, distinct voice and great guitar work make Chis Rea one of my all time favorites
Did Chris Rea have a stint as lead singer with Savoy Brown?
A recent discovery for me--don't know how I missed him back when. His music has a lot of variety, and I like all of it...the rock, the disco-style, the blues, the jazzy, the sweet. The instrumentat i o n and arrangements are creative, as are lyrics. A very talented man.

I have nothing to say...Chris speaks for himself, yes?
speedyduggan
Love "texas" being from Texas, Sweet song
"On the Beach" brings back all the fun memories of the late 80s. Those were the good old days.
cris rea is on of my favorite artists reminds me of when i was a teenager , first startin to listen to music smokin a little weed with frends and gettin introduced to classic artists such as him self , I have to say I love most of his songs , lets dance , julia , josephine i mean the list goes on, when this guy came out with a greatest hits thats excatly what it was
favorite Chris Rea song - let's dance
Chris Rea has got to be the most unique sounding singer I've heard. Nothing to complex but just different enough to be attractive. Fool (If you think it's over) is an example of a simple song but has a quality that draws you in, just like his voice.
nphillips001
I love to listen to Chris Rea.. Let's Dance is such a happy song. Beautiful voice!
virnagisela
awesome :)
mirelutaro
my mommi loves his music, she thinks it sounds amazing, and she thinks im the best daughter ever = )
An early date with my now wife was to see Chris Rea in London. It was the mid 1980's and we both had failed marriages behind us and each had young children. Chris's music has featured throughout our life together. Our children grew up to Daytona, The Road to hell and Let's Dance. They've all grown up and left home home now, but I still have my Stainsby Girl.
Mr.Cool, I like him 15 years a hope for next 100..
