    David Crosby Dead at 81

    Legendary US musician David Crosby dies aged 81
    Tom Ambrose


    Legendary US musician David Crosby has died aged 81, after a “long illness”.

    The singer, guitarist and songwriter was part of the original line-up of The Byrds and appeared on their first five albums, including the 1965 hit cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Mr Tambourine Man’.

    He also co-founded the folk rock supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash along with fellow musicians Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. They later added Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young to the line-up.

    In a statement to Variety, his widow Jan Dance said: “It is with great sadness after a long illness, that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has passed away. He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django.

    “Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us. His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music. Peace, love, and harmony to all who knew David and those he touched.

    “We will miss him dearly. At this time, we respectfully and kindly ask for privacy as we grieve and try to deal with our profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers.”

    He was famously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice and five albums to which he contributed were included in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    I must have missed those comments, but considering he was talking a lot of shit about his own old friends Graham Nash & Neil Young in recent years, I'm not all that surprised. Some old farts just get cranky & bitter towards everybody, I guess?

    I recall reading years back that he had more than a few health problems.

    I haven't even thought about him in musical terms for over thirty years. That was at the end of the 1980s, when around 1987 the media went nuts over the 20th anniversary of the Summer Of Love and seemingly everyone was wallowing in late 1960s nostalgia. I remember Crosby, Stills and Nash (and maybe Young, too...can't remember) released an album...American Dream, I think it was called. And I remember thinking it was a lame effort and CS&N should pack it in if that was the best they were capable of.

    I recall Crosby bottomed out in the mid-1980s...something about him being holed up on a sailboat with his girlfriend and a freebase pipe. Went to jail (or rehab or whatever), cleaned up.

    CS&N and CSN&Y did some good stuff. Used to listen to that stuff in my teens. Haven't had a desire to in decades.

    Crosby always seemed like a guy a bit more relevant to my parent's generation than mine. Those hippy dippy self-absorbed baby boomers.

    Whatever.

    Enjoyed some of his stuff. Have a couple CSN(Y) songs on my Spotify playlist.
    The Remember My Name doc was pretty good.
    His lasting impression on me was/is "Can you please trim the fukkin' ends of that goddam walrus mustache."
    Please.
