David Crosby and The Damage Done (or Not...)

Classic Rocker Mouths Off At Fan, Gets Dragged For His Trouble | Daily Wire
(Click photo to enlarge)

 

David Crosby -- yet again -- finds himself in serious blowback over some ill considered remarks. (Thanks Richie C.!)

The short story is that a Croz fan (DJBSackett @DjbSackett·

Hi @thedavidcrosby hope you are keeping well. Did a picture of you…. Thanks for the music
 

The fallout has not been kind to David Crosby.

So, the following is an attempt not to re-hash ad infinitum the never ending controversies of CSN & Neil Young , but to simply share something that we were unaware of completely.

Check this clip from 1967 Monterey Pop Festival of The Byrds.

 

 

The Byrds - "He Was a Friend of Mine" (Live at 1967 Monterey Pop Festival)

In the above clip, David Crosby makes a very brief statement about the John F. Kennedy assassination and then plays the Byrds song "He Was a Friend of Mine".

David Crosby: “They’re shooting this for television. 

I’m sure they’re going to edit this out. I want to say it anyway, even though they will edit it out. When President Kennedy was killed, he was not killed by one man. He was shot from a number of different directions, by different guns. 

The story has been suppressed, witnesses have been killed, and this is your country, ladies and gentlemen.”

"He Was A Friend Of Mine"

He was a friend of mine, he was a friend of mine
His killing had no purpose, no reason or rhyme
He was a friend of mine

He was in Dallas town, he was in Dallas town
From a sixth floor window a gunner shot him down
He was in Dallas town

He never knew my name, he never knew my name
Though I never met him I knew him just the same
Oh he was a friend of mine

Leader of a nation for such a precious time
He was a friend of mine


David Crosby: “Thank you. As I say, they will censor it I’m sure. They can’t afford to have things like that on the air. It’d blow their image.”

Due to Crosby’s controversial statement about the JFK assassination,  the Byrds'  Monterey performance was cut from television and film coverage of the festival.  It was this incident and similar circumstances which led to Crosby leaving the Byrds and eventually forming CSN.

But... history has proven that Crosby was right back in 1967 about the JFK assassination, as we know now.

It was -- as Bob Dylan put it recently -- a "Murder Most Foul".

Rude. It’s not even that weird of a portrait. Makes for great promotion for the artist though! They will be making some sales for sure now.

Anyone put in their pre-orders for Eldorado vinyl? I’m sure there are some here who did not opt for the Official Release set. I would have ordered Eldorado, had it been announced some weeks earlier. But when I was in France last month I scored a copy of the original vinyl, so I’m good! Other than feeling about €40 lighter…

For being a self-professed Hippie, ol' Croz sure falls short on exhibiting the basic Hippie value of kindness.

Tomatron, you are exactly right, a pretty good little drawing. He should be grateful/graceful, but good luck with that, seething right under the surface of this guy is an intense competitive mess.

I almost wrote that Croz's response here was bizarre. Then, of course, it occurred to me that we're talking about Croz. Every other word out of his mouth is bizarre. Seriously, I can understand that the fan art phenomenon (aka strangers drawing pictures of you) is a little weird to begin with, especially if you're not in tune with social media culture. But someone in the public eye--who seemingly wants to be in the public--ought to have more tact and situational awareness.

The person clearly didn't post their work for critique or workshopping, and if you can't do constructive critique without being rude, you probably aren't an expert in that particular field.

Am I overthinking this? Quite possibly. I guess I have a hard time fathoming that anyone would be so inconsiderate for no reason.

I think everyone who has ever been close to David Crosby has at some point come to the conclusion that he's basically a jerk. A really talented artist, but still a jerk. IMHumbleO. BTW, I think Long Time Gone and Almost Cut my hair are fucking killer songs. I keep trying to nail them solo acoustic but can't reconcile the guitar rhythm and the vocals. I keep trying though.

With all due respect on JFK... Croz was wrong.

This is the short version. The PBS special is excellent.

P.S. Croz was a gem to me backstage in 2002, but then, I was there as a Guac Fund donor. :)

@ Meta Rocker 0 no, not overthinking.

@ GP Rob - thanks much for feedback & opp here.

And with all due respect .... Crosby was right in 1967

1979 US House Findings
https://www.johnfkennedy.org/p/report-of-select-committee-on.html

Report of the Select Committee on Assassinations of the U.S. House of Representatives

Summary of Findings and Recommendations


Findings in the Assassination of President Kennedy
Findings in the Assassination of Reverend King
Recommendations of the Select Committee on Assassinations

I. Findings of the Select Committee on Assassinations in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Tex., November 22, 1963

Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots at President John F. Kennedy. The second and third shots he fired struck the President. The third shot he fired killed the President.
President Kennedy was struck by two rifle shots fired from behind him.
The shots that struck President Kennedy from behind him were fired from the sixth floor window of the southeast corner of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald owned the rifle that was used to fire the shots from the sixth floor window of the southeast comer of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald, shortly before the assassination, had access to and was present on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building.
Lee Harvey Oswald's other actions tend to support the conclusion that he assassinated President Kennedy.
Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that the Soviet Government was not involved in the assassination of President Kennedy.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that the Cuban Government was not involved in the assassination of President Kennedy.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that anti-Castro Cuban groups, as groups, were not involved in the assassination of President Kennedy, but that the available evidence does not preclude the possibility that individual members may have been involved.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that the national syndicate of organized crime, as a group, was not involved in the assassination of President Kennedy, but that the available evidence does not preclude the possibility that individual members may have been involved.
The Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency were not involved in the assassination of President Kennedy.
Agencies and departments of the U.S. Government performed with varying degrees of competency in the fulfillment of their duties. President John F. Kennedy did not receive adequate protection. A thorough and reliable investigation into the responsibility of Lee Harvey Oswald for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was conducted. The investigation into the possibility of conspiracy in the assassination was inadequate. The conclusions of the investigations were arrived at in good faith, but presented in a fashion that was too definitive.
The Secret Service was deficient in the performance of its duties.

@ GP Rob - ps - any idea why there is an almost pathological movement to destroy Crosby?

Yes, he may be a jerk. But trying to re-write history is a worse sin in our view.

What Crosby said @ Monterey has been horribly misrepresented. This was 1st time we had seen the whole Monterey clip in full.

He makes essentially 2 statements in 4 brief sentences before playing song. There is no crazy rant at all as you can see.

This blog will alway push back against misinfo appearing in comments.

again read the full official Findings of the 1979 U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Tex., November 22, 1963

the TRUTH will prevail as The Big Shift rolls along and picks up speed

 
At 7/21/2022 09:48:00 AM, Blogger Abner Snopes said...

Thrasher is clearly right- no rant and Crosby was essentially right.

I think the essential cause of Crosby's emotional and moral dysfunction is a desperate desire to be thought of in the same way as Neil, Bob, Joni and add to the list. Somehow, he just did not make it to that level, even if he has A level talent.

 
At 7/21/2022 09:58:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Abner - thanks for validation. we don't say that for TW but for DC.

Again, we had heard these stories over the decade. But it wasn't until this week of seeing the uncut Monterrey footage of the whole segment start to finish, that we understood that DC had been horribly slandered over the decades.

it is somewhat ironic that theses sorts of "facts" emerge long after the damage done.

The point being that ultimately the TRUTH prevails despite what the cover uppers try.

TRUTH wins in the end ALWAYS. We have EVERYTHING. And it will ALL come out eventually.

This is way, way bigger than Crosby sticking his foot in his mouth. Everything happens for a reason and as more folks wake up (not WOKE up), the trend will rapidly accelerate.

hang in there .... the best is yet to come ...

can you feel it???

 
At 7/21/2022 11:32:00 AM, Blogger GP Rob said...

thrasher -- thanks. I don't get it -- love the Croz! He's just a cranky old man now, like some of us are becoming! :)

On JFK, the sound evidence from the motorcycle policeman dict-a-belt has been discredited since it was published in the committee's report. I think even Blakely changed his tune, eventually. Conspiracy, maybe; second gunman, nope. Just my two cents from decades of reading, watching, and one visit to Dealey Plaza and the museum.

 
At 7/21/2022 11:49:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ GP Rob - many thanks for return response here.
obviously, this is a hugely important topic for us.

for us, Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Tex., November 22, 1963 was the day the music died. A REAL American Pie, if ever.

good to see that you have conducted your own research and reached your own conclusions.

likewise, we have decades on this and their thinking as evolved.

we firmly believe that one the greatest failures of Pres. Trump was the failure to release all of the secret files on JFK. He could have done it, but did not. Shame.

But this will come out. And when it does, the TRUTH will FINALLY set us ALL free.

peace

At 7/21/2022 01:12:00 PM, Blogger Ron said...

I am reminded of a couple of comments made by David Crosby in Cameron Crowe's 2019 documentary of him called Remember My Name.

Firstly he remarks that he is the only member of CSNY who has hasn't had a hit solo album, and relates this to why he is still recording and touring.

Secondly he comments that none of the people he was closest to musically (McGuinn, Neil, Nash and Stills) want anything to do with him any more. He is asked why he doesn't go round to Neil's and knock on his door and try to make up and says he doesn't know where Neil lives anymore.

My impression from it was he regrets a lot of what he has done and said - I found it quite sad to watch.

I'm with @Soids in being a big fan of Almost Cut My Hair and Long Time Gone, and think Crosby has a great voice. It's good too that he is still producing new music - I have been listening to it and quite enjoying. What's Broken from Croz got quite a lot of play from me when it came out.

@Ron, thanks for the bump. I never conflagergrate (not a real word) the art I love with the creator. I only wonder to the stars what the Creator saw in that creator, but not for long. Bathe yourself in the art and hope the artist has the chance to fill the stream again. On a side note: Dear @thrasher: keep on keeping on.

People still believe Lee Harvey Oswald was responsible for JFK? Wow, go figure. That's kind of like believing the Covid vaccine is actually effective, isn't it?

@ Ron - right,the documentary was very sad. most evryone felt after viewing it was a "cry for help".

@ Soids - thanks for support, we try and we will keep on keeping on.

@ Richie - go figure. but, just think of them as one you'd never figure ...

Richie- thinking back on some of our previous discussions that did not always end well. I recently got COVID- there is no more discussion of "break-through" infections. I felt pretty bad for two days. My doctor told me the vaccine and boosters most likely cut down on the duration of the illness. But no doubt we were fed info too quickly with not enough science and no one able to really predict the mutation rates of the virus. Basically, everyone I know has gotten COVID and those who are vaccinated are definitely getting sick (just not dying or going to the ICU).

 
At 7/22/2022 03:18:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

@Abner, Late May/early June, we were sick for about a week, mild symptoms. I remember it was around the time first tracks from Toast dropped. At any rate, vaccinated and boosted, which I suspect kept it from being worse.

Effectiveness can vary depending on which shot(s) you got. Some permutations are statistically doing better than others. The other point that needs to be made is the virus itself continues to rapidly mutate. There are a dizzying number of variants, more popping up all the time, the general pattern being that new mutations get more contagious but less deadly. People are mostly getting sick now from variants that didn’t exist when the current vaccines were developed.

It’s not that vaccination doesn’t help. It just isn’t a magic elixir. Hell, we haven’t eliminated flu and there are new shots for that every year. However, it reflects sadly on the education system that some people get so tripped up on the concept that no vaccine is a guarantee.

 
At 7/22/2022 05:49:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

All I can say is that before the vaccine came along, I honestly didn't know a single person who got Covid. Now, I know at least 15 family members or friends who got it in the last year, all of whom were vaccinated. Meanwhile, myself and about 5 other guys I know who never took the shot, and have not gotten sick once. Food for thought, I guess.

Common sense: the longer the virus is going around, the more people get it. Plus the mutations that make it are those beneficial to the spread of virus, so the newer strains tend to be more contagious. Vaccines are clearly not perfect, but I wonder of those who haven’t reported getting sick, how many are the type to ignore when they *do* get sick?

 
At 7/22/2022 09:03:00 PM, Blogger Abner Snopes said...

@Ian, Paul Erlich- The Evolution of Infectious Diseases- the tendency of natural selection should be, as you say, toward a more contagious mutation AND with LESS virulence. The advantages of contagious and less virulence seem obvious enough, more virulence sidelines those infected.

Unfortunately it doesn't always work out that way. But no advantage to the virus if it wipes out its host. (Incredibly virulent forms of cholera continued because so many people handled the waste of victims and so became victims, the bacteria happily moved around killing people.)

Anyone hear that polio is making small inroads. I have yet to understand what really amounts to a "religious objection" to vaccines. Polio might very well turn a person religious as they prey for life. This might resonate for Neil.....

I know that about 85% of the population are scared little sheep who are programmed to just automatically hate Trump, but is there anyone out there who thinks the world is better off with Joe Biden as President? And if so, can you provide some SPECIFIC examples of Biden's superiority over Trump as a President

@ All - congratulations commenters. a TW comment trifecta.

a single post generating comments on:

- exonerating David crosby's Monterrey statement
- discrediting lone gunman JFK assassination theory
- cv19 counter theories

we say this b/c TW remains one of the last open comment systems on the internet.

And just think, thrasher, I still haven't brought up the boys and girls who run the World Economic Forum yet!

And I haven't mentioned that the other day a Biden official actually said the words "Liberal World Order". Gee, wonder what that's all about??

 
At 7/23/2022 04:18:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

And for the record, I didn't bring up Trump, someone else did, before he did his usual deleting of his rather insulting comments. I own up to what I say, even if it's sometimes unpopular or silly.

 
At 7/24/2022 11:47:00 AM, Blogger thrasher said...

@ Richie C - understand.

yeah, a bit puzzling on comment deletes? not sure what's going on but we see a trend where a comment is made and then almost immediately deleted by the Author.

not sure if there is immediate regret and deletion? certainly if that was the case, we would appreciate a better understanding of why exactly the comment was retracted?

did they truly change their opinion? or just didn't want the opinion out there?

the 3rd possibility is that the message is meant to be seen and once seen, then retracted.

if that's the case, our curiosity grows ...

either way, remember, we have EVERYTHING

ps - freedom of speech isn't free, ok?!

peace

 
At 7/24/2022 03:33:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

Incidentally, “liberal democracy” is a term with a long history in political science. A few minutes of research would confirm the word liberal has many connotations and that its use as an insult is a relatively recent thing. Theorist types using words in a different way from what the average person might understand can be a real barrier to understanding.

Unfortunately, sometimes all it has takes to turn minds is a little flag-waving, sloganeering, or other forms of public spectacle. While I don’t think the current admin has been all most of us could hope for (and some of the reasons are beyond any one person’s control), it is kinda refreshing not having to wonder, on a weekly basis, which tinpot dictator our president is going to either cozy up with or goad into needless war next.

 
At 7/24/2022 04:07:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

Fewer American soldiers died under Trump's watch than any President of my 50 years on this planet. If that means anything.

 
At 7/24/2022 04:58:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

Richie, that may be true for all I know. It doesn’t necessarily reflect on Trump personally. What I object to is the implication that anyone who doesn’t vote your way doesn’t care about US soldiers dying. It’s the definition of a cheap shot, designed to paint the other side in the worst possible light.


It’s one thing to have talking points, quite another to think about where you’re getting those points from.

 
At 7/24/2022 06:46:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

Actually, putting words into someone's mouth seems like a cheap shot to me. Where exactly did I say that not voting for Trump means you don't care about soldiers dying?

And talking points? Not sure what you mean by that. I was just saying that fewer soldiers died under Trump than anyone else in decades. That's not a talking point, it's a fact.

 
At 7/24/2022 07:01:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

Can you tell me what “if that matters” from your previous comment is supposed to mean? To me, that reads like an implication that the reader may be callous enough not to care.

 
At 7/24/2022 07:54:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

It means that most people who seem to hate Trump fall love to bring up that somehow he was gonna lead us into WW3, which never came close to happening while he was in office. I'd like to think that ANY President who presided over peace during his term MIGHT get a little credit for it. I find it refreshing when people can admit to being wrong once in awhile. Trump should get credit for having such a peaceful term, yet even today, 2 years after being out of office, you're talking about needless wars.

 
At 7/24/2022 08:31:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

In that case, I apologize for misinterpreting. Not sure I'd call the Trump years entirely peaceful. No new wars--I take it that's what you meant. And that's a good thing. I'm just skeptical that Trump personally had much to do with it. A fact becomes a talking point when it's presented in isolation from any other context and used to make a political point.

 
At 7/24/2022 08:44:00 PM, Blogger Richie Cruz said...

No, a fact is a fact. And that's the fact.

 
At 7/24/2022 10:40:00 PM, Blogger The Metamorphic Rocker said...

All I'm saying is, always consider the source. People often choose to present certain facts in certain contexts for particular reasons.

 
At 7/27/2022 04:37:00 AM, Blogger Andy said...

Trump, anti vaccine rhetoric..is this a Fox News site? C'mon back reality people and let's chat Neil. Very dissapointed with Crosby's comment about that fan art.
