David Crosby, Iconoclastic Rocker, Dead at 81

David Crosby, the singer, songwriter and guitarist who helped shape the sound of Sixties rock and beyond, died on Thursday at the age of 81. A source close to Crosby confirmed the musician’s death to Rolling Stone, but did not disclose a cause.

“It is with a deep and profound sadness that I learned that my friend David Crosby has passed,” Crosby’s former bandmate Graham Nash wrote in a statement. (…) “David was fearless in life and in music,” he added.” He leaves behind a tremendous void as far as sheer personality and talent in this world. He spoke his mind, his heart, and his passion through his beautiful music and leaves an incredible legacy. These are the things that matter most.”

Crosby was a seminal figure in the folk-rock scene for more than six decades as a member of The Byrds,  Crosby, Stills & Nash and then Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He also had a prolific solo career, especially in recent years, releasing new music at an almost frenetic pace.

Crosby’s wife issued a statement writing, “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.”

She continued, “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.”

Graham Nash, Brian Wilson, Melissa Etheridge and More Remember David Crosby: ‘Fearless in Life and in Music’

Musicians and fans from all over the world have paid tribute to the news of David Crosby’s death on Thursday evening. Brian Wilson, his close friend and bandmate Graham Nash, Jason Isbell and many others remembered him as an “unbelievable talent.”

As the founding member of two highly influential bands, the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash (later Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), Crosby helped set the template for L.A. rock in the ’60s.

One of rock 'n' roll's most enigmatic figures, David Crosby first caught our attention as a member of the Byrds, arguably one of the greatest American bands ever. He stayed only a few short years before moving on to greener pastures with friends Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.

Whether solo or as part of a group, there was no denying David Crosby. His vocal talents alone would earn him a boatload of accolades, but throw in some great songwriting and a colorful existence, and you had one of music's most cherished icons.

David Crosby, Mainstay of Two Classic Rock Bands, Dies at 81

He was an original member of the Byrds and a founder of Crosby, Stills & Nash. But he was almost as well known for his troubled personal life as for his music.

David Crosby, of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, dies at 81

Over the years, David Crosby achieved more than many an old hippie musician could even hallucinate. He and his band mates sold 35 million records. He was twice inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame — once for his years with the groundbreaking folk rock group the Byrds and then for his on-and-off decades with Crosby, Stills & Nash, a group described by the Hall of Fame as “America’s longest-running experiment in vocal harmony and social relevance.”

Crosby sailed the world in a 59-foot Honduran mahogany schooner called the Mayan. He piloted his own plane, lived on a ranch in the wine country north of Santa Barbara, and in his later years experienced a surprising burst of creativity that produced four albums along with concert dates across the country.

Asked in the 2019 documentary “David Crosby: Remember My Name” how he had managed to keep going, he answered succinctly: “No idea, man.”

Legendary US musician David Crosby dies aged 81

Eight months ago Crosby agreed to be interview by a journalist class at a high school in Colorado. He made headlines after answering a student’s question about whether he would tour again, replying: “No. I’m not, because I’m 80.” He also pointed to his age to explain his recent spate of solo albums: “I’m 80 years old so I’m gonna die fairly soon. That’s how that works. And so I’m trying really hard to crank out as much music as I possibly can, as long as it’s really good.”

David Crosby è morto. Addio alla voce libera e ribelle tra i grandi del rock

L'ultimo suo post su Twitter era stato mercoledì, per ricordare la bellezza di un brano dei Beatles, Eleanor Rigby, da ascoltare in una giornata di pioggia così forte da rendere opachi i vetri di una finestra. Ventiquattr'ore dopo, è arrivato l'annuncio della sua morte: David Crosby, chitarrista e cantautore californiano, il baffone del rock, una delle colonne di quel trio che si pronunciava tutto d'un fiato, Crosby, Stills & Nash, è scomparso a 81 anni.

Le rock américain a perdu une légende

L’artiste de folk rock David Crosby, du supergroupe Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, est mort à 81 ans. Egalement cofondateur des Byrds dans les années 1960, le Californien aux longs cheveux blancs s’était relevé de ses excès, dont la drogue, pour relancer une carrière solo.

Crosby war auch beim legendären Woodstock-Festival

Häufig kamen Crosby Rauschgift-Eskapaden und sein ausschweifendes Privatleben in die Quere. Mit wirklich bemerkenswerten Alben trat der Amerikaner erst im gehobenen Alter wieder in Erscheinung. Die fünf zuletzt vorgelegten Solowerke zählen zum Schönsten, Berührendsten und Vornehmsten, was David Crosby in seiner langen Laufbahn gemacht hat - von "Croz" (2014) bis "For Free" (2021) ein beeindruckendes Spätwerk. Vergangenes Jahr hatte Crosby schließlich verkündet, dass er für Konzerte mittlerweile zu alt sei und ihm die Kraft fehle.

In einem Interview dem Musikmagazin "Rolling Stone" sagte Crosby 2014: "Ich weiß nicht, warum ich noch am Leben bin, während Jimi (Hendrix) und Janis (Joplin) es nicht sind. Ich hatte Glück."
