David Crosby replied to his fan’s question about his favorite singer whom he sang with on his Twitter account and revealed that working with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour was a quite fun experience.
As you know, Crosby was the founder member of The Byrds. After he left The Byrds, he met with Graham Nash and Stephen Stills, and they formed Crosby, Stills & Nash. Their first album ‘Crosby, Stills & Nash’ became a hit instantly and stayed on top 40 for a long time.
He released his first solo album ‘If I Could Only Remember My Name’ featuring Neil Young, Graham Nash, Joni Mitchell, and members of Jefferson Airplane in 1971. Later, Crosby and Nash collaborated with Pink Floyd member David Gilmour in his third solo studio album ‘On an Island’ in 2006. The album became top 1 on the U.K. charts. They also sang with Gilmour at his live concerts and toured together.
Since they shared the stage and created new songs together, Crosby has expressed his admiration for Gilmour whenever or wherever possible. Therefore, when his fan asked him about his favorite singer, he mentioned great artists such as Michelle Willis, Becca Stevens, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Shawn C. Sarah Jarosz, Everlys, and of course his long time friends Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, and David Gilmour.
Here’ what he wrote:
“There’s a few ….Nash is a fine harmony singer.…so is Stephen, Bonnie, Gilmour, Simon, Garfunkle, Everlys, Shawn C. Sarah Jarosz, Michelle Willis, Becca Stevens, ..many more”.
