Chris Haskett is a guitarist, producer and composer. Primarily known as the guitarist with the Rollins Band, he has worked as collaborator or sideman with a diverse group of musicians including, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Steven Brown, Foetus, Jah Wobble, Pigface, Utah Saints, The Cassandra Complex, Reeves Gabrels, Lloyd Cole, Elliott Sharp and many others.

He has appeared on more than thirty albums and released eight solo records, six centered around the guitar and two, under the name DJ Linux, of turntablism.


So here's what is in the works: two live CDs of the trio with Nick Enfield and Mirna Sodre are ready for mixing. There'll be  live video at some point too. I currently mixing a really, really cool session from around 2000 which features Percy Jones, Lance Carter and Gerry White. AFTER that is all done, then I'm allowed to start (and finish!) doing guitars for MY next CDs. What was going to be one release will now be two: one all CH originals and the other an eclectic collection of covers (Sonny Sharrock, Grateful Dead, Ronnie Montrose, Led Zeppelin, Sun Ra and a few others). Stay Tuned!

The good, the bad, the ugly and the very, very strange...

I've finally gotten round to putting ALL of my released music on youtube. It's strange to me but apparently that's where a lot of people listen to music. So there it is. There's much more to come with new releases and live stuff in the pipeline too.

The video channel is:


Article on yours truly and the 9-string in Gitarist magazine (for those of you who read Dutch). The nice but uncredited BW pic is by Jeroen Geerts. Thanks Jeroen!

Article (in German) on yours truly in the April edition of GItarre un Bass. Apparently I am a "Schrägmeister". I hope that's something good.


Cool article on the PRS 9-string at Music Radar with a link to a Youtube video I put up.
