Chris Cooke

Statement from Eliza, 2 January 2019


'Beyond the Pale' is very sorry to bring sad news about Procol Harum's stalwart manager, Chris Cooke: these are the words of Eliza Richardson, his wife.


 


Whilst we were on holiday, Chris has had a stroke. After returning to the UK he remains in hospital, in intensive care, on ventilation. Currently he cannot speak or move his left arm or leg.

He has had blood and lung infections, which have only just begun to respond to a lengthy course of antibiotics.

This has come as a terrible shock and surprise. Recovery is going to be a long, tough process and the outcome at this stage is very uncertain.
 


Readers will appreciate that Chris's e-mail address is not operational at present.

For the moment, please use cc-professional@procolharum.com for any Procol management business.

Rather than contacting Eliza for the time being please use cc-personal@procolharum.com, and 'Beyond the Pale' will forward messages when appropriate. 

Many thanks to everyone for your understanding and kind cooperation.
