Echoes from the Canyons: A Retrospective Music Podcast

S1E1 THE BYRDS: DAVID CROSBY Flying High Until The End PART 1

April 1, 2021

In Part 1 of David Crosby: Flying High Until The End, Jimmi discusses the Byrds in the early days, a few of Crosby's idiosyncrasies, and how his behavior eventually became problematic for the band.  From smoking marijuana on an airplane and at a CBS photos session, to playing with Buffalo Springfield at the Monterey Pop Festival as his bandmates watch from the audience, Crosby is starting to pull away.  He seems aloof and detached, and begins distancing himself from the other bandmembers; a prelude of the things to come.
