The late David Crosby’s estranged bandmate, Graham Nash of the American folk-rock supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (CSNY), said they were on the verge of reconciliation.
Many of David Crosby’s fans, as well as the whole rock music industry, were shocked to learn of his passing. He was a renowned musician who had a significant role in the formation of the folk-rock genre.
His impact on the profession was evident, and many people were saddened by his premature death. Graham Nash stated to AARP that Crosby left him a voicemail prior to his passing that included the musician’s final wish.
The members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young went through a difficult time of strife and disagreement over their music and the course of their band in the early 1970s. Graham Nash and David Crosby’s argument was the main source of disagreement.
Nash shut the door on a reunion after Crosby, Stills & Nash broke up because of conflicts between Crosby and the other members of the band. The two admitted that they were no longer friends and that they didn’t want to speak to one another in the years that followed.
However, we were starting to see some changes over the past year. A year ago, Nash had revealed that the two of them had a special bond. Nash had also talked about how much he missed working with David.
Recently while talking with AARP, Graham told that Crosby had sent him a voicemail before he passed away to discuss with him and apologize.
Crosby passed away, so even though he replied to him via email, he probably didn’t see it. While chatting he revealed,
“We were getting a little closer at the end. I emailed him back and said, ‘Okay, call me at eleven o’clock tomorrow your time, which is two o’clock on the East Coast.’ He never called, and then he was gone.
His death islike an earthquake: You know that you’re in an earthquake, but subsequently, other smaller earthquakes happen afterward. His death has been like that. It was only two or three days after he passed that I realized he was actually gone.”
Sadly, there was no opportunity for the two to meet and make amends. The musician also intended to release new songs, and it was well-known that he was composing a new album however it couldn’t happen.
Throughout his career, David Crosby has been known for his innovative and highly influential approach to songwriting, as well as his distinct vocal style. His influence on modern rock music is undeniable, and he continues to be an important figure in the genre.
