  1. The writer of the article above lists David as 76. David Crosby turned 80 August, 14th, 2021. lol, no one else proof-read the article I guess…
    At any rate, CS&N, CSN&Y have always been one of my favorite bands. Sad they would never get back together & tour at least a couple more times as a group before Stephen Stills announcing that he decided to officially retire as a working musician. Like Crosby, Stills continues to do studio work with one of his sons….
    Thanks for all those years of music David, my best friend & I attended about 10 Detroit area concerts starting way back around 1972, up until, (I wanna say) 2012 I believe…. I hope all will continue to go well for you David…..
