He certainly left a mark, no question about it. Like many, I have heard all the stories about what a dick he could be, but as far as I am concerned he was one of my favorite guests and a really nice man. We had an absolute blast recording an episode of Playing Records With Mike, and he knew his shit. Right before this photo was snapped, he bellowed "Would you buy a car from these guys?" And everyone has a good laugh. My daughter was filling in as Artist Hospitality that day and spent all day hanging with his son, Django and is crying right now for his terrible loss.. Croz did not suffer fools, phonies or poseurs at all, and he had no problem copping to his ability to be a complete and utter dick. But when he recognized a musical soul, he would give you the shirt off his back. We bonded over our mutual awe at the talent of Michael Hedges, which was just one of a litany of topics we covered that day. No notes, no script just a couple of music fanatics celebrating the pure joy music brings. I really loved him and send love, light and positive vibes to his family and friends at this difficult time. Instead of sadness, celebrate that for someone a millimeter away from the grave all those years ago, pulled himself together for a few decades of bonus time. My mind's eye sees him currently wearing his famous cape and harmonizing as no one else could at the afterparty.
