David Crosby Reacts To His Obituary Notice
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young icon David Crosby posted a recent tweet in which he reacted to the news which announced that he recently passed away.
Apart from working with the bands such as The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby also made successful solo efforts throughout his career. Back in 1971, he released his debut solo album ‘If I Could Only Remember My Name’ which featured a number of guest musicians. Although the album received mixed views, it was mainly critically acclaimed.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of David Crosby’s solo debut. To celebrate it, the musician released a reissue of the album which featured several out-takes and demos. Released on October 15, 2021, the 50th-anniversary edition of the record also included previously unreleased tracks such as ‘Coast Road.’
Although it is clear that the 80-year-old musician is in a good health to continue making musical efforts, an article titled ‘The Death Of David Crosby’ is released by some of the well-known websites. This created confusion among the fans as Crosby recently released a new album. The author Steve Silberman then went on Twitter to express that something was wrong.
Steve Silberman stated in his tweet that the article actually belongs to the year 1985. He then said David Crosby is fine enough to record a new album last week. Following that, one of the websites responded to Silberman’s tweet that it was an accident that took place during a site migration. Consequently, both websites deleted the articles.
Steve Silberman’s tweet read:
“Spin and Yahoo: Why on earth are you re-running a 1985 story today with the headline ‘The Death of David Crosby?’ (I will not link to it.) David Crosby is not only fine, but he also recorded a new album last week. Meanwhile, the Spin journo who wrote that story died years ago!”
One of the websites’ official Twitter account shared a response:
“It was deleted and published as part of a site migration accidentally.”
Following that, Silberman said:
“Oh, good to know. Can you pull it from Yahoo?”
The official Twitter account of the website answered:
“We’ll reach out to them right now.”
Silberman then tweeted:
“Thanks so much.”
Upon seeing this, David Crosby showed his witty side and posted a tweet as a response to Silberman’s. In the tweet, he said that reports of his death are slightly exaggerated. Fans then responded to Crosby saying that they need the musician here for a long time.
David Crosby’s tweet read:
