David Crosby: the passings . . .

Jan 20, 2023,11:35 AM

. . . keep coming.

David was a fair rhythm player, but his calling card was his voice.  Singing harmony was his specialty . . . his collaborations with Graham Nash . . .

. . . were a staple of my high school years.

Never saw him perform, but in the '80s was briefly acquainted with Roger McGuinn's ex-wife who regaled a few choice tales of David's legendary bad habits.  He was able to overcome them, and consequently gave us decades more of listening pleasure.

Farewell, David.

told about the sad news David left us. He was a very good musician who gave us fine albums. I grew up with bands like Pink Floyd, Queen, The Cure, Dire Straits, Mink DeVille, Talking Heads, Kinks, and the Steve Miller Band. Crosby was more before my time,... 

A Mink DeVille fan!

I can recommend the documentary Remember My Name to those who are interested in Davids career as well as the west coast sound. What makes this film diffrent to many others of this kind is that Croz is more self-critical than many other so called rock star...

. . . he never understood why Eddie was so highly regarded. I thought that was an unnecessarily unkind comment to make, but it was in keeping with David's customary ruthless honesty. Art
