 Chris Bell (politician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert Christopher Bell (born November 23, 1959) was a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives for Texas District 25 in Houston from 2003 to 2005.
Right before Bell ran in the Democratic primary in 2002 for Texas Congressional District 25, he campaigned for a mayoral bid to succeed Mayor Lee P. Brown in October 2001—the incumbent Brown was facing both Bell and fellow council member Orlando Sanchez, who had Republican support though the contest was nonpartisan.
Bell was elected in 2002, but on March 9, 2004, he was defeated in a Democratic primary for District 9, which replaced District 25 in the 2003 Texas redistricting, by Al Green, the former President of the Houston NAACP.

 Chris Bell, MP3 Music Download at eMusic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Chris Bell was one of the unsung heroes of American pop music; despite a life marked by tragedy and a career crippled by commercial indifference, the singer/songwriter's slim body of recorded work proved massively influential on the generations of indie rockers who emerged in his wake.
Born January 12, 1951 in Memphis, Tennessee, Bell grew up enveloped by the city's indigeneous soul sounds -- typified by the prodigious output of the Stax label -- but his first love was the music of the British Invasion; inspired by the Beatles, he took up the guitar in his early teens.
While Bell continued working on music, his depression worsened; to help revitalize his career, his brother David led him to France's Chateau D'Herouville studios, where a batch of demos were cut for a planned album.
