David Crosby muses on mortality, talks rift with CSNY members in trailer for new doc; announces new solo trek
May 15, 2019 12:00 PM
The first official trailer for the new David Crosby documentary, David Crosby: Remember My Name, has premiered online, and the clip includes glimpses of the folk-rock legend discussing his poor health, his fractured relationships with his old band mates and more.
As the video starts, we see an interviewer ask Crosby -- who's now 77 years old -- if he wonders why he's still alive, to which he answers, "I don't know. No idea, man." He then declares that he's had three heart attacks and has eight stents in his heart.
David also talks about his current prolific period, noting, "The last few years, I made four solo albums…I'm going for five."
Another segment features Crosby discussing his issues getting along with people. "I was not easy," he declares. "Big ego, no brains. I don't think I was a good lover. I think I was selfish."
Crosby also talks about his current conflicts with Graham Nash, Stephen Stills and Neil Young, admitting, "All the guys I made music with won't even talk to me…You say stuff and do stuff that's just awful." Nash is then shown being interviewed and saying about the rift, "It's just sad, and I don't quite know how to undo it."
After being shown at several film festivals earlier this year, Remember My Name will get its theatrical premiere on July 19 in New York and Los Angeles, then will open in other cities in the following weeks.
Meanwhile, Crosby, who last week launched a May-June U.S. tour with a band featuring musicians who contributed to his 2016 album Sky Trails, has announced a late-summer stateside leg with the group that kicks off August 15 in Roanoke, Virginia.
