Overview

An honest and revealing memoir from musician David Crosby, founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

A true rock-and-roll survivor, David Crosby has not slowed down since his New York Times bestselling memoir Long Time Gone. Reunited with his adult son while awaiting a liver transplant, becoming a famous sperm donor (to Melissa Etheridge and Julie Cypher), coming back from a crippling motorcycle accident, losing his house in an earthquake, and through it all making beautiful music, David Crosby once again reveals all with self-skewering humor and honesty—as only he can.
 
“A fascinating life worthy of a sequel.”—Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

David Crosby, the legendary singer/songwriter/rock-and-roll bandleader from The Byrds (whose hits include Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man" and the psychedelic classic "Eight Miles High") and the "first initial" of the legendary Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, is a two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Throughout his career—from its beginnings in the socially conscious burgeoning California folk scene in the early sixties, his surprising views on gun control, his recovery from drug abuse and deteriorating health, and his influence on a whole new generation of folk-oriented singer/songwriters—Crosby has remained an icon of counterculture, an advocate for social responsibility, and a thorn in the side of hypocrites of all stripes.
