As one of the founders of the Byrds, David Crosby established himself as a noted voice in folk music. Often embracing or creating interpersonal conflict, Crosby joined Buffalo Springfield for Monterrey Pop Festival, leading to his invitation to leave the Byrds, although he returned in 1973 for their reunion. As both a member of the Byrds and CSN/Y, Crosby is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Crosby embraces emerging music and is a vocal supporter of songwriter Jason Isbell. Ever outspoken, Crosby continues to share his political activism, especially on Twitter. He has struggled with substance abuse and health challenges, yet perseveres, perhaps with some self-awareness in recent years.
