David Crosby is crediting music for keeping him alive. The classic rocker, who recently turned 80, is still experiencing the creative drive.
In a new interview, Crosby said, “I think making music is crucial and it’s keeping me alive. There are two centres to my life; my family and the music. That I can still at this advanced age get a chance to make more music is just a freaking miracle; it’s f’n wonderful. I didn’t think I was going to live past 30.”
“The fact that I’ve made it this far… All the things that I’ve been through, man – all the mistakes that I’ve made; the time that I’ve wasted; the problems that I’ve had… I’m astounded that I’m here, I’m clear-headed, I’m happy and I’m working and my family is working. I’m making good records. I’m surprised and extremely pleased.”
The Hell that man's been through and making music at 80 years old and sounds so good! Crosby is a National Treasure. LONG LIVE CROSBY! pic.twitter.com/IK35rdd8Fn
