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.” David Crosby was drawn into the Byrds orbit soon after their formation, his quicksilver artistry adding rock ‘n’roll spirit to their folk-rock mix. The band were pop revolutionaries, with their take on ‘Mr Tambourine Man’ spawning an international wave of imitators.Such a potent partnership couldn’t remain in place, however, and Crosby exited the band in 1967 due to prodigious drug use and comments onstage at Monterey Pop Festival. A stellar solo career followed, before linking with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. Following the introduction of Neil Young, CSN&Y were formed achieving record-breaking sales.A profound and distinctive spirit, he worked right until the end, speaking to Clash on multiple occasions about his work. Rest in power.
