I saw Crosby, Stills and Nash in the early 90s. By that time, David Crosby had already lived a full and colorful life. He began his recording career in the early nineteen-sixties, as a founding member of the folk-rock band the Byrds. However, I remember him primarily during his Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young days.
Crosby just released a new documentary, “Remember My Name.” Essentially, the film is a brutally honest self-examination, covering his 50-year journey as a musician and activist.
From Sony pictures: A revealing and deeply personal documentary exploring the life and creative renaissance of music icon David Crosby. A cultural force for over fifty years, Crosby faced uncertain future after the 2015 dissolution of Crosby, Stills and Nash.

You thought you knew him. Meet David Crosby now in this portrait of a man still tilting against every windmill, with everything but an easy retirement on his mind.
