Hansi Cross, was not only a friend, he was also a fine musician and a great composer as heard on many albums by his band CROSS !! He was manager/director of Progress Records !!
He was kind, strong willed and intelligent, I had the pleasure of creating some cover art for his band and other Progress Records signings, he was always creative with ideas, feedback and input.. so much so, that we eventually co-worked on the later cover art works. I know, as many of you related to him, the band, music circuits alike, he will be missed, what a sad sad day !!
Not only a loss for his dear ones, family and close friends, also for me and most certainly for the prog music circuits!!
R.I.P. dear friend and have a safe travel !
