David Van Cortland Crosby

Born August 14, 1941.David Crosby is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He is best known for being a founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY). Crosby is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work in the Byrds and CSN.

Solo career

In 1971 he released his first solo album If I Could Only Remember My Name, featuring contributions by Nash, Young, Joni Mitchell, along with members of Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, and Santana. Panned on release by Rolling Stone, it has received more critical respect with the passage of time and is still in print.

Crosby and Graham Nash have also released several albums as duo known unsurprisingly as Crosby & Nash.

Some other popular songs Crosby wrote in the 1970's include "Where Will I Be?", "Carry Me", "Bittersweet", "Time After Time", "Foolish Man", and "In My Dreams".

Renewing his ties to the San Francisco milieu that had abetted so well on his solo album, Crosby participated in electronica composer Ned Lagin’s proto-ambient project Seastones, along with members of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Starship.[2]. He also sang back up vocals on "Highway song" from the Hot Tuna album "Burgers".

Uno de los grandes del rock, un disco en solitario increíble que todo el mundo tiene que escuchar obligatoriamente, If I Could Only Remember My Name, un viaje iniciático en el rock psicodélico. Si no le conocen pónganse al día.Gracias.
