David Crosby On CSN: ‘I Had to Leave In Order to Stay in Love With Music’
Will Crosby, Stills, and Nash get back together? Lou and I posed that question directly to David Crosby during a recent interview.
The Croz is back at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Monday, November 20, with a new band and a new electric album titled, Sky Trails. David was kind enough to come back on our show in early September to talk about the band, his new album, his show at the Ridgefield Playhouse, and why CSN is not happening. Check it out:
Yes, I admit I am a super fan when it comes to David Crosby. I love the chord changes in his songs, the harmonies, his passion, and all of his side projects. Croz readily admits he should not be alive due to his massive drug abuse which included years of freebasing cocaine in the 70's and 80's. Somehow, he was able to battle his demons, and now at the age of 75, he's making his own music surrounded by world class musicians which he handpicks himself.
Watching him onstage is like watching a new upcoming artist. You can feel the emotion in his songs and in his voice. He regularly compliments the members of his band during his live shows never taking them for granted, and sometimes at the end of a song, you can hear him yell, 'YES!'
His new album titled 'Sky Trails' is finished and it rocks! You can count on hearing a half dozen new tunes when he plays the Ridgefield Playhouse on Monday evening, November 20. I'm pretty sure you'll be treated to a couple of CSN songs along with one or two tunes from CPR, his collaboration with his son, James Raymond and Jeff Pevar, who by the way, are in his new band. For a David Crosby super fan like myself, it proves to be a magical evening.
