The Byrds

Main article: The Byrds

Early in 1964, Crosby started performing in clubs with Roger McGuinn (then known as Jim) and Gene Clark under the name the Jet Set. They soon changed the name to the Byrds, and were joined by bassist Chris Hillman and drummer Michael Clarke (whom Crosby allegedly discovered playing bongos on the beach). They somehow managed to obtain a demo recording of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man", and recorded a cover version of the song featuring McGuinn's twelve string guitar and Crosby's and Clark's vocal harmonizing. The song was a massive hit, and went to #1 on the charts.

In The Byrds, while Roger McGuinn was responsible for the trademark 12 string guitar sound (which he in turn took from George Harrison on "A Hard Day's Night" and the Beatles for Sale album), Crosby was responsible for the soaring harmonies and often unusual phrasing on their songs.

In 1966, Gene Clark, who then was the band's primary songwriter, left the group due to stress. This put all the group's songwriting responsibilities in the hands of Crosby and McGuinn. Crosby took the opportunity to hone his craft, and soon blossomed into a prolific and talented songwriter. His early Byrds efforts included the classic 1966 hit "Eight Miles High", which he co-wrote with Clark and McGuinn, and its flip side, "Why" co-written with McGuinn, which showed Crosby at his hard-edge best. The song "Hey Joe" is widely credited as being popularized by David Crosby after he picked it up from Dino Valente. He taught the song to Bryan MacLean and Arthur Lee of Love, who then taught it to members of The Leaves. Since he felt responsible for having popularized the song, Crosby convinced the other members of the Byrds to cover it on Fifth Dimension. By Younger Than Yesterday, the Byrds' album of 1967, Crosby was starting to find his trademark style. 1966 (MCMLXVI) was a common year starting on Saturday (the link is to a full 1966 calendar). ...

Friction existed between Crosby and the other Byrds, which came to a head specifically in 1967 over two issues: his substitution, at the invitation of Stephen Stills, for an absent Neil Young during Buffalo Springfield’s set at the famous Monterey Pop Festival in June; and the Byrds’ rejection of Crosby’s controversial "Triad" composition as either a single or an album cut on Notorious Byrd Brothers in August. It was widely reported that the other Byrds were offended by the topic (a ménage à trois). This angered Crosby so much that he began to frequently skip sessions. As a result, Crosby was dismissed from the Byrds in the fall of 1967.[1] "Triad" was recorded by Jefferson Airplane and released on their album Crown of Creation in 1968. Decades later, the Byrds' version of Triad surfaced on the 1988 Never Before release and is now available on the CD re-release of Notorious Byrd Brothers.) 1967 (MCMLXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar (the link is to a full 1967 calendar). ...

In 1969, the group was joined by Neil Young, and with him they recorded the album Déjà Vu, which went to number 1 on the charts. That same year, Crosby's longtime girlfriend Christine Hinton was killed in a car accident only days after Hinton, Crosby, and fellow girlfriend Debbie Donovan moved from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. Crosby was devastated, and he began abusing drugs much more severely than he had before. Nevertheless, he still managed to contribute "Almost Cut My Hair" and the title track "Déjà Vu".

The group reunited in 1973 to embark on a reunion tour. It was also around this time that they began recording a new album, entitled Human Highway. The recording, which took place at Neil Young's ranch, was very unpleasant, and marked by constant bickering. The bickering eventually became too much, and the album was cancelled. Yet they once again re-united the following year to go on a stadium tour. The tour was also full of constant bickering, though they managed to finish it without interruption.

David Crosby - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (942 words)
David Van Cortland Crosby (born August 14, 1941 in Los Angeles, California) is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter.
David Crosby moved through the same Greenwich Village scene Bob Dylan participated in, and even shared a mentor of Dylan's in a local scene favourite Fred Neil.
Crosby is one of the few musicians who found fame in the 1960s who genuinely deserves more credit for his music than he has ever got; unfortunately, all too often, occasional moments that have made the news – basically related to drug abuse and drug related paranoia – have made people forget his excellent songwriting.
