Delayed because of surgery, his Troubadour stand finds the legend rebounding beautifully, revisiting history while showcasing his first solo album in two decades.
David Crosby scored all kinds of high points just for walking on stage Sunday night at the Troubadour.
Back in February, he postponed a five-night solo run at the West Hollywood landmark to undergo emergency heart surgery. Yet here he was, a mere two months, later performing a full-length concert that didn't cut any corners.
David Crosby scored all kinds of high points just for walking out on the stage at the legendary Troubadour on April 13.
Back in February, he postponed his previously-scheduled shows at the West Hollywood landmark to undergo emergency heart surgery, but here he was a mere two months later performing a full-length concert that didn’t cut any corners.
Nearly 45 years ago, I heard “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” for the first time when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, along with Neil Young, took to the stage at Woodstock and opened with the song after telling the crowd “This is only the second time we’ve performed in front of people. We’re scared shitless!”
Okay, so I was with my father who helped coordinate the security at Woodstock and I was only nine years old, but it’s a memory that sticks with me to this day. (Luckily I wasn’t tripping on acid like everyone around me and I still have the memory!)
Crosby, Stills & Nash held a full Fox theatre audience spellbound for almost three hours on Saturday night providing an evening of entertainment that was a perfect blend of old and new music, solo and collaborative efforts, and hard rock and the harmonies for which Crosby, Stills & Nash are renowned.
Few bands evoke the spirit of the late sixties and the anti-Vietnam war culture, as much as Crosby, Stills & Nash.
While the lyrics to one of their most famous songs "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" states 'It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore' that clearly wasn't the case last night as Crosby, Stills and Nash played to a sell-out crowd for over two and a half hours at the Embassy Theatre.
From the moment that David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash took to the stage, the crowd erupted in overwhelming approval as the group proceeded to take them on fun-filled journey through some of the best rock songs of the past 40-plus years.
For David Crosby, life is especially sweet. Survivor of a lifestyle that nearly killed him dozens of times over, the two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Byrds in 1991; Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1997) has recently released Croz, his first solo album in more than 20 years. Containing 11 new songs, its title is a wry reminder of Crosby’s long and winding return to consciousness in the years after his brilliant 1971 solo debut, If I Could Only Remember My Name.
