    I loved Chris Rea's work. Whatever happened to him?

    From Wikipedia.....
    Rea suffered a stroke in 2016 which left him with slurred speech and reduced movement in his arms and fingers. Soon afterwards he quit smoking to deter further strokes and recovered enough to record and tour.[63] In September 2017, he released his twenty-fourth album, Road Songs for Lovers, and embarked on a European tour starting in October until December.[64][65] On 9 December, Rea collapsed during a performance at the New Theatre Oxford, the 35th concert of the tour.[66] He was taken to hospital where his condition was stabilized.[67] This health issue caused the last two concerts of the tour to be cancelled.[68]
