(NewsGlobal.com)- According to Graham Nash, prior to his passing, David Crosby called his former Crosby, Stills & Nash bandmate in an attempt to mend a shattered relationship.
Graham Nash was interviewed by Rob Tannenbaum for an AARP article published on February 8. Nash explained to Tannenbaum that Crosby left him a voicemail saying he wanted to talk and to apologize. He asked if they could schedule a time to do so. Nash emailed and asked him to call the next day at 11 a.m.
However, Nash never received a call from Crosby, who died shortly after that.
Tannenbaum wondered if Crosby knew he was dying.
Nash said he considered that to be the case. The bandmates had been preparing for David’s death for 20 years, considering Crosby’s liver transplant and all his stents.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock (UCR), Crosby stated in a June 2021 interview with Howard Stern that he had generally let down his bandmates completely by becoming a junkie.
Crosby’s alleged insult of Neil Young’s then-girlfriend-turned-wife Daryl Hannah sparked conflict between the two members of the expanded Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
Nash told Tannenbaum that David Crosby had been his closest friend for over fifty years. The fact that he was willing to apologize for what he had done made it easier for Nash to accept his passing.
Nash revealed that Crosby’s voicemail and overall effort to reach out to him were highly significant. Knowing they would reunite later in his life made David’s passing a little less difficult.
Before forming Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby was a founding member of the 1960s psychedelic phenomenon The Byrds. With Nash from the English band The Hollies, Stephen Stills from Buffalo Springfield, and Crosby’s formidable role with the Byrds.
According to reports, Crosby’s wife, Jan Dance, announced on January 19 that David Crosby died after a long illness at the age of 81.
