Happy Birthday, David Crosby
We'd like to wish a very happy birthday to David Crosby, who turns 75 today.
Crosby was born in Los Angeles in 1941. His father, Floyd, was an Oscar-winning cinematographer. Crosby would go on to co-found two fantastic bands: the Byrds, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (occasionally CSNY, when Neil Young was around). He wrote some of CSN's best songs, such as "Wooden Ships":
...and "Almost Cut My Hair":

And let's not forget Croz's solo masterpiece, If I Could Only Remember My Name. Very sick album art, too.
Crosby has had a long friendship with the legendary Joni Mitchell, and produced her debut album, Songs for a Seagull. What a pair those two must have been back in the day!
Not only that, but he is amazing at Twitter.
You won't be catching him at Oldchella, that's for sure!
He tweets all the time, and engages with fans in the most hilarious ways. These are just a few highlights from the last week!

But we're glad you're still here, Croz. Rock on.

It's set to open by mid-to-late February.
