Rock Legend David Crosby Remembered: Neil Young’s Tribute and a Look at His Mercurial Musical Genius

The music world is mourning the loss of rock legend David Crosby, who passed away yesterday at the age of 81. Crosby was a founding member of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and his influence on popular music was immense.

A day before his death, Crosby tweeted that heaven was “overrated” and “cloudy,” a sentiment that has taken on a new poignancy in the wake of his passing.

Neil Young, a longtime friend and collaborator of Crosby’s, has expressed his grief at the news. “Love you man,” he wrote in a post on Twitter.

The Guardian has described Crosby as a “mercurial musical genius who thrived through the chaos,” and his legacy will undoubtedly live on for many years to come.
