  1. This one really hurts for me. While I didn’t always agree with his views, and actually thought he was pretty good at jamming his foot in his mouth, I was and still am a huge fan of his music and his musical abilities. What a voice! And still, in his early eighties, his voice was light years ahead of many of his peers, and even some of those making names for themselves today. His sense of harmony was otherworldly, right from the beginning when he was a member of The Byrds. He could finger pick an acoustic guitar beautifully, and he experimented with different tunings after being inspired to by Joni Mitchell. He wrote some pretty darn good songs, too. Between solo performances, CSN, CSNY, CPR, and C&N, I couldn’t tell you how many times I saw him in concert, but it was a LOT of times. If you are so inclined, watch a movie about him called “Remember My Name.” It’s a pretty fair self-assessment of his life. I never knew him personally, but I will miss him very much. Yes, Croz, rest in peace.

    • You took me to a concert once. I think it was CPR.
      I agree that his skills remained high. That’s why I chose this particular video to post. The song is old, but the performance was December, 2018, a little over four years ago. His voice is still pure, his guitar mellow.
