There are some articles on the web indicating that Chuck Rainey has had a stroke and is in ICU.
Many of us are big fans of his so I just wanted to pass on the news in case anyone has not heard.

How could anyone not be a fan? He's one of the pillars of bass playing.
Get well soon, Chuck!

Just listening to Rickie Lee Jones' Pirates album. Chuck's playing on here is great. I really love what he's doing on 'woody and dutch on the slow train to peking'. One cool feature - the sleeve notes have Steve Gadd on 'boxes and thighs' on the same track :-)
