The fact he made it to 81 is a miracle.

Crosby’s last interview with Variety was a tearful, touching testimonial to Jerry Garcia, on the 25th anniversary of the Grateful Dead guitarist’s death, published in August 2020. “Of all of the people that I can think of that I’ve really loved as musicians — and then there are some stunners in there that I miss; I miss (Jimi) Hendrix, I miss Janis (Joplin), I miss my friend Cass (Elliott), I miss a lot of people that I lost — yeah, I probably miss him the most,” Crosby said. “If I had had to pick somebody to represent musicians to the world and to the universe, I would have picked him. He cared about the right things. … He did not play music for money. You can start your list of things about Jerry Garcia with that: he wasn’t there for the money. He didn’t give a shit. He was there chasing the notes. He wanted the music — really, really badly. He would go to great lengths; he would suffer indignities [laughs] to get to the point where he could make some music.”
We will understand it better bye and bye.

a sad day :cry:

I got to see CSN a handful of times over the years

I saw David once as a solo act - he opened 12/31/86 at the Oakland Auditorium
he had just been released from prison, and he says prison is what got him off of coke
I was just beginning to get off for the night and he began to drone on and on about
not doing drugs anymore :roll: - I bailed on his set and went downstairs to buy a drink

the most interesting David show I saw was David and Graham at the Cathedral of St John the Devine
for a benefit of some sort - really interesting setting that night

Rock on David and keep singing sweetly :listen

Such a great talent - RIP David

Was lucky enough to see CSN&Y twice in 1974 and CSN multiple times in the ‘80’s. You cannot beat their harmonies and the songs were so well written!

So, one afternoon many years ago when I was living in Santa Barbara, I had just finished walking my dog in Shoreline Park and was in my truck on my way back home. I pulled up to an intersection down by the beach and was waiting for the light to change. Not a busy intersection, just sitting there quietly. It was one of those incredibly warm, beautiful Santa Barbara afternoons, so I had my window down. There was a car next to me in the left turn lane and the passenger had his window down, too. I hear him talking to the driver and recognized his voice immediately as my friend Dave. So, I say, without looking, "Hey, Dave." He says back, "Hey, man". Then I look over and realize it's Crosby. Not a friend of mine, but that distinctive voice made my brain tell me that it was "my friend Dave". So, now I realize my mistake, and I think I should probably apologize for interrupting his conversation with the driver in his car (especially since I think they may have been having an argument). But just then the light turned and off they went.

So, as I drove away all I could think about was that David Crosby thinks I'm an asshole. I always hoped I'd run into him again so that I could apologize. Now, it's too late.

RIP David

Yipes

Saw him a bunch of times including the day Nixon resigned. Lots of CSN

Could harmonize like an angel - thanks for teaching the Dead to do that.

Amazed in a way that he made it to 81. Hard life for quite a stretch.

RIP

In a recent interview, actually could be up to 5 years ago now on an intermission for Dead and Company I think it was... he talked about how he never taught the Dead to harmonize nor taught them anything. I guess it's possible he didn't remember or just didn't want to take credit for whatever reason.

If you follow him on Twitter, he's been saying he's gonna die soon for about 3 years. Very matter of fact about it, at least in print. Furiously made albums over the past 2 years, trying to do everything before his ride came.

And to think it's on Janis and Owsley's birthday...
