Chris Daniels has been a fixture on the Colorado music scene for four decades. That run nearly ended when he was diagnosed a couple years ago with leukemia. Daniels began chemo right away and he eventually had a bone marrow transfusion. Daniels is getting better. He has a new album out, Better Days, and as he tells CPR's Zachary Barr, some of the songs on the album were actually written from his hospital bed while he was sick.
