Nobody would've believed it back in the day — but the great David Crosby has defied all odds and turns 80 years old on August 14th!!!! Crosby, who's in the midst of a brilliant third act in his career, is receiving raves for his just-released solo set, For Free., which features key collaborators in recent years — son James Raymond, Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, Michelle Willis, and Becca Stevens.
The album, which peaked at Number Two on the UK Independent Albums chart, is named after "Croz's" cover of the Joni Mitchell classic. For Free features a new cover portrait by Joan Baez, and contributions from Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, and the Doobie Brothers' Michael McDonald.
Earlier this year, while forced off the road during the pandemic, earlier this year, Crosby sold his entire music catalogue to music mogul Irving Azoff's Iconic Music Group. He continues his online advice column, Ask Croz, via RollingStone.com.
