Gone at the age of 81.
Crosby lived an adventurous life - both good and bad. But he left a ton of great music behind.
Lot of good music, but based on his life style I'm surprised he made it this far. Still, he will be missed. "Don't you ever ask them why. If they told you you would cry. Just look at them and sigh, and know they love you." RIP David, and thank you.
Oh, no! I remember an article on him, in the Eighties, saying he was dead - a commentary on his drug abuse at the time. His autobiography is a good read - he spares no detail on his odyssey with drugs and how he made the decision to turn himself in when he'd hit rock bottom. As he says in this interview, hard drugs "pretty much destroyed my life ... or I destroyed my life with their help". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byfTAdChMQ8
Saw him with CSNY in '74. A major talent. My favourite Croz song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4ra2DxBq2U&t=2s
Only Roger and Chris remain from the original Byrds.
"I'm coming out of the Darkness, finally my soul can take a rest." Crosby and Nash.
