David Crosby Hoping For One Last CSNY Tour Before He Dies
David Crosby says that one of his final wishes would be to tour with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young one more time. Crosby, who along with Graham Nash and Stephen Stills, will kick off a European tour later this month, admits that he's cheated death more times than most humans times combined, and realizes his time on Earth is limited, telling The Wall Street Journal, "Look, I have maybe 10 more years, if I'm lucky. I have hepatitis C, diabetes and heart disease. I'm managing them. I'm going to the gym three days a week, I'm feeling strong and I can still make audiences feel great. My dream? One more tour with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and my friend Neil (Young). From there, I'd be fine. I'd be able to sail. I'd live. And I'd be happy."
David Crosby says that he still feels blessed and privileged to have been able to be a songwriter and recording artist for nearly 50 years: "I'm not a wise man, I'm not a studied man, I'm not really an educated man. For me to glimpse a piece of truth that gleamingly clear is a big event in my life and to be able to transmit it, it's a big deal. And I felt that if we got any of that level on a record that I was functioning as I was born to do. This is the job I was born to do."
CSNY last toured together in 2007.
Crosby, Stills, & Nash will next perform on June 20th in Dresden, Germany.
