TRANSCRIPT Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Remembering David Crosby

Music legend David Crosby passed away last month after a long illness. He was 81. Crosby’s work paved the way for the folk rock movement. He was a founding member of The Byrds, and performed at Woodstock as a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Crosby was also an award winning solo musician in his own right, and he’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. We’re remembering David Crosby by revisiting our 2016 interview with the late music icon. During the conversation, Crosby talked about the music he was exposed to growing up and when he first started singing. He also talked about his time with the Byrds and why he was eventually thrown out of the band. Plus, he shared his hot take on hip-hop and his thoughts about the genre.
