Chris Thompson is one of rock's great "unsung" vocal talents. Although many rock fans may not immediately recognize the name, his vocals have made a permanent mark on the landscape of modern rock. He first shook the popular music scene as the thunderous voice on the fantastically huge single "Blinded By The Light" with Manfred Mann's Earth Band, still in constant radio rotation 20 years later. Well known in the recording scene for his high-energy vocal power, his talent is in constant demand by the likes of rock legends Jan Hammer, Elton John, and Alan Parsons.
