Claudia Koeze,
my former partner and songwriting collaborator,
died this morning at Bellevue Hospital, New York,
after a long battle with cancer.

She was a very special person
and we shared a lot of good times together.
I will miss her.

She was fiercely original, loving and without guile. She wanted to LIVE and only wanted to talk about what we were going to do when she was healthy again. Go hear music...Patti Smith, New Year's Eve, Bowery Ballroom. Go ice skating, what color scarf she would wear. WALK around NYC. In the last month, I kept fearing every conversation might be our last, only to have her shuffle by on her walker, glance at "Super Nanny" and deliver in her best dead pan "In the last episode she kills them all." Her humor remained in tact as long as she was able to speak and probably long after. We miss you, Claudia. We love you and we are with you.

Hi Chris,

Freddie Katz here.

I'm saddened to read this news. I remember Claudia well..we met at the Bottom Line show I did with you, and I've since run into her several times around the city, the subway, etc. She was a nice woman, and I know you'll miss her terribly. My thoughts are with you, now and always.

Much Love,

Freddie Katz

Claudia is an angel.
I can't stop thinking about her and her contagious laugh.
I love her and miss her terribly. Thanks for this tribute Chris.
That is such a beautiful picture. It really captured her essence.

Dear Chris, Claudia was my "double step sister",
the step daughter of my step father.
She and I met at our step father's memorial service here in NYC in 2001
and were close friends for a year or so.
I thought Claudia was amazingly insightful and tender-hearted.
She spoke lovingly of you. You really were the angel of her life.

She, Mary Ellen (our step sister) and I all had birthdays one
after the other. November, 20, 21 and 22.
We also all three developed cancer.
I'm so sorry that Claudia died so young.

Please accept my condolences.
I'm sorry for your loss. My loving thoughts to you.

May Claudia rest in peace.

I had the pleasure of meeting Claudia one time,
I am a very good friend of her wonderful mother Bettye,
who has told so much about you and Claudia.....

Reading these notes to you from friends makes me realize
how special she was to you....

Thank you for coming to visit with my dear friend Bettye too,
Chris, it meant so much to her !

Dear Chris,

So sorry for your loss. I am Claudia's cousin.
Though she lived most of her life far from her Koeze relatives,
she will be missed, especially by her cousins who have been sharing
their stories of her with me.
I saw her about a week before she died and
she still managed to share her infectious smile,
quick sense of humor, and even a growl.

Hi Chris, I am sorry to hear of the passing of Claudia,
I hope the good memories get you and those who were close to her
through this sad time.
>> Redbird name : Jon Koeze [2012/01/03,01:47:52] No.283
I too am Claudia's (Redbird was her family nickname) first cousin
and want to express my sympath and empathy to your loss.
Of all my relatives I have always felt she was the one
I could relate to the most.
We never had much time together, due largely to geography,
but when we did we would have fabulosly engaging conversations.
I know we will all miss her dearly.

I learned what happened to her a few years after the fact, but wanted to write a note - she is remembered and will always be part of my life and that of many others.

I went to Hampshire with Claudia. She cut my hippy hair into a pretty good Paul Cook. She let me use her Fender Jaguar for some gigs, starting my lifelong love of Fender offsets like the Jazzmaster. She introduced me to fresh carrot juice at some absurd place in the Upper East Side, and introduced or reinforced many, many great musicians. I used to steal guache from the art supply store where I worked to feed her painting habit.

They broke the fucking mold.

Hi Chris,

I hope you and yours are well in these difficult and strange times.

I was wondering what happened to the Sharks film that was being produced, by Steve I think ? Was it completed ?


>> not completed yet name : toshio [2020/03/29,09:54:59] No.382
Hi Mike,

I saw Steve last September. He was still working on editing it. The editing guy lives in Germany. He has to fly there or that guy has to fly to the UK to edit. And both have their own work. So there isn't enough time to do it.

Anyway I will contact him soon.

Dear Mr. Spedding

I have always been a fan of your solid and basic guitar work, and I am very impressed by your collaborations as a session guitarist for as many and very versatile artists as Elton John, Bryan Ferry, Nina Hagen, Joan Armatrading and Carla Bley. I have also heard about your presumed performance as guitarist for Sex Pistols, hidden behind curtains before stage. Furthermore, rumours went, that you were the next possible candidate to replace Mike Taylor after his departure from Rolling Stones.

Nevertheless, my first encounter with your music was Guitar Graffiti, which I happened to enjoy in the company of some Indian and Tibetan enligtened people. They particularly seemed to enjoy the honesty and sincerety of "Waking With The King". Such great lyrics describing a state of mind and position in life where you have transcended ordinary and trivial considerations in life, and just have come back to basics.

I also enjoyed Guitar Jamboree a lot; you were able to depict any great guitarist and imitate their style in the most charachtersitic manner,

Anyway, most of all I respect your very basic and original manner of making music, and for my part this has been a most enlightening and uplifting experience, where music is not just about manner, but rather an attitude and expression about life.

God bless you, Mr. Spedding, I'm always walking With The King.

I do not eapect any answer to this email, just wanted to express my feelings and appreciation.

I hope it's on vinyl. Should be great!
>> vinyl? name : toshio [2020/01/04,06:27:25] No.374
I am very sorry. I have no plan to release it on vinyl.

I say, my purpose of this release is NOT my profit. I think Chris Spedding should release something under his name more often, NOT as a session musician.
In fact, the profit by selling this CD is for Chris and his next project.

If I had a lot of money, I would have release it on vinyl...

Hey Chris, outstanding show last night with Robert and the boys. You guys absolutely killed it. Rock n' roll is alive and well. Send my regards to the band.

It shaping up to be a good year. Seeing Chris with Bryan Ferry and now tomorrow night in Hamilton, that's twice in one year good stuff. Here's hoping his set includes Frontal Lobotomy that would be so killer
