The Chris Barber Website Message Board

Have been a fan of the band for many years and we were talking a while ago about we cannot believe that Chris Barber hasn't been knighted by the queen for his 60+years of service to music in this country. Am sure there would be a lot of people delighted to see Chris receive a richly deserved knighthood soon.
I could not agree more. His music alone should have garnered him a knighthood by now, let alone his influence.

couldn't agree more. not that i resent van morrison, cliff richard or mick jagger their k's but van and mick built on chris's early work popularising jazz and blues in the uk and europe. also i dare say a "gong" would add a few punters at the box office. cue cb's jibe about the man who last saw him in '55. . .
