Stephen Stills And Graham Nash Get Emotional On David Crosby’s Birthday

Serra Ozturk

Graham Nash and Stephen Stills took to Instagram and wrote captions to pay their respects to their late bandmate David Crosby on August 14, which would have been Crosby’s 82nd birthday.

Stephen posted a photo of Crosby playing the guitar. He celebrated his late friend and band mate with the opening lyrics of the Crosby & Nash track ‘Carry Me.’ He wrote:

“When I was a young man I found an old dream,

Was as battered and worn a one as you have ever seen.

But I made it some new wings and painted the nose,

And I wished so hard up in the air I rose, singing…

 Carry me above the world

 Remembering David Crosby today and every day.”

On the other hand Graham posted a photo of them performing together and wrote the caption that read:

“What to say besides how much I miss him? Thinking of you, David. Remembering these moments, the smiles, the laughter… the music.”

Even though Nash and Crosby had rough patches in their relationship over the years, they had almost made amends when Crosby reached out to apologize for his behavior. The pair had even scheduled a FaceTime call that never happened as Crosby suddenly passed away due to Covid-19 complications.
