Let's always keep in mind that it's guys like Grossman who put in the time and effort to popularise this music. Yah, he might be super-aggressive, and know how to run a business, but I wouldn't doubt for a moment that he absolutely loves and lives this music! I worked with him on a show in Toronto and he was gracious, friendly, and interested. He also seems to have little tolerance for folks he considers less-commited. But remember..He DID the work. Who would have heard the magnificently eery Mickey Baker (aside from his two rock hits) were it not for Stefan?
