    I never forgot him.
    Shux, I am him, without the talent, hair, successes and looks!
    I always thought he was brilliant, and the perfect foil for Jim.
    I was an early fan.
    I was at my high school girlfriend’s house when we heard about the plane crash.
    In 1973, right about this time of year I started my “sideman” career.
    RIP, brother(s).

    I guess we finally have something in common Bones because i love Maury's playing. He really had his own thing going.

    Bill, you've said many times that you can't stand bent strings on an acoustic. I agree with you 99.9% of the time on this.

    Maury is the only exception I can think of...he's always in tune!

    always thought "Time in a Bottle" was pretty amazing acoustic work. I think a lot of the way I use sixths comes from listening to Maury's work with Jim Croce. At least I hope it sounds like it might...

    I've always love Jim and Maury's music. Their pieces are absolute stunning gems, all of it.

    He was more established than Jim when they hooked up, but he heard the songs and believed
    Jim was on his way to success.

    So he stuck with him.

    His playing was fantastic, and helped make the songs become what they did.

    This, for me as well!

    I was a fan of Maury Muehleisen along with Jim Croce while they were performing as well as later. I researched his life after his death as I was saddened by the fact that he was totally forgotten about, being so fully in Jim Croce's shadow. He was a terrific guitarist.
