David Crosby Says Neil Young Is the "Most Selfish Person" He Knows
"He only thinks about Neil, period"
Published Sep 03, 2021After unearthing decades-old CSNY drama with Howard Stern earlier this summer, it appears David Crosby is still feeling salty over old beef with former bandmate Neil Young.
Speaking with The Guardian, the 80-year-old rehashed his feud with the Canadian music icon, calling him the "most selfish person" he knows.
"I'm a very liberal guy and a modern thinker in terms of politics," Crosby said. "Neil doesn't really do politics. He does Neil."
He elaborated: "Well he's probably the most self-centred, self-obsessed, selfish person I know. He only thinks about Neil, period. That's the only person he'll consider. Ever!"
Crosby had dished on his relationships with the other members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young earlier this year, explaining that — despite recent rumours about being completely ostracized by all three members of the group — he's still chummy with Stephen Stills, for whom he claimed to have "a lot of hero-worship."
However, as with Young, Graham Nash was on his shit list. And he still is, at least, according to his latest gossip session.
"We haven't talked for a couple of years," the Croz told The Guardian. "And I'm not going to talk to him. I don't want to talk to him. I'm not happy with him at all. To me, that's all ancient history, man."
Back in July, the artist was singing a different tune, recalling that he "let all three of those guys down totally by becoming a junkie," a period of his life that he claimed he had "apologized [for] a million times." That was a 79-year-old Crosby talking, mind you. Perhaps he's grown less apologetic since his newfound octogenarian status.
Crosby released his new album For Free on July 23 through BMG. This summer, the artist shared the album's title track with Sarah Jarosz — a cover of Joni Mitchell's original that appeared on her 1970 album Ladies of the Canyon — and "Rodriguez for a Night," which was written with his son, James Raymond and Steely Dan's Donald Fagen.
