At 75, music legend David Crosby is still thinking about what comes next - San Jose Mercury News

Musician David Crosby has more stories to tell than most. Luckily for his fans, he’s a good storyteller, in song as well as in the books he’s written. A native Californian born into a filmmaker’s family, his penchant for drama has played out in his myriad of interesting experiences, both on stage and off. And his impeccable timing, whether by luck or by fate, has given him the skills to navigate the many ups and downs of life as a rock and roll legend.

Talking to David Crosby About His Quiet Solo Resurgence - OC Weekly

For years, David Crosby wasn’t concerned about his solo career. Sure, it was always on his mind, but with his schedule busy with various acronym-based supergroups, it’s easy to understand why time slipped away.

Yet, when he hasn’t been in the news for squabbling with Neil Young, Crosby has quietly had a solo resurgence. For the first time in many years, the songs were coming quickly. The result is one of the most prolific periods of his entire career.

David Crosby on finding his happy place without CSN or Y

David Crosby is alone again following yet another fallout with his partners in harmony, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash (and sometimes Neil Young). Having once taken 21 years between solo albums, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame double inductee (once with the Byrds, once with Crosby, Stills & Nash) is now prepping his third new release is three years, “Sky Trails.” The rock album follows last year’s acoustic collection, “Lighthouse,” which was produced by Michael League of Snarky Puppy. Crosby, 75, spoke to us from his home in Santa Ynez.

Singer-songwriter David Crosby once took 21 years between solo albums but after “Lighthouse” landed in October it took less than six months for Crosby to get its follow-up “Sky Trails” ready for advance sales at stops of the tour that kicked off this month.

So what’s going on? we asked the musician whose roots reach back to Crosby, Stills & Nash — and sometimes Young — and the Byrds before that.

“It’s two things,” Crosby says by phone from his home in Santa Ynez. “I’m very happy with my family and very happy in my life.”

Rock legend David Crosby on Trump, activism and breaking up with Crosby, Stills & Nash - SLO Tribune

As anyone who follows him on Twitter can attest, David Crosby isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

The legendary singer-songwriter, whose work with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash landed him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, is famously frank when it comes to politics, religion, music and his membership in two of rock’s most influential, and internally combative, bands.

So when he’s asked about his recent split with bandmates Graham Nash and Stephen Stills, Crosby, 75, is typically truthful.
