Bay County man Tour Manager for legendary music acts.

Panama City, Fl. -

For almost 25 years Panama City's Crook Stewart has been traveling around the world serving as Tour Manager for a number of legendary music acts.

 He spent 19 years with Joan Baez and is currently Tour Manager for Jackson Browne and Crosby, Stills and Nash among others. Crook says his main duties include mostly logistics and keeping everybody happy. That goes from bus drivers, truck drivers, musicians and road crews.

Crook is on the road 8 to 9 months a year and when he's in town, Stewart opens up the basement of his home called the Ghetto Palace to host local talent for huge jam sessions. Stewart is on the road again as he heads to Paris to serve as the road manager for The Rolling Stones. That tour will start in late November.
