David Crosby is a famous singer and songwriter

Have you ever noticed that really huge wealth quite often is earned by chance? The same thing happened to David Crosby.

The son of an award-winning actor Floyd Crosby, at first David dreamed to become a Hollywood star. But then he chose another passion as the source of his wealth – music.

In early 1960s David Crosby earned his living, performing at the clubs and coffeehouses. Of course, he was low-paid, but money was not so important for the young musician – he had something more valuable – creative freedom. David Crosby was looking for his style and was not afraid to make experiments. He changed folk motives with bass guitar sounds, and got some new level of music.

One day David met another musician, who was keen on music too. It was Roger McGuinn. They started to perform together and later formed the band “The Byrds” with three other their colleagues – Gene Clark, Michael Clarke and Chris Hillman.

The band performed in a coffee house, when they were noticed by Jim Dickinson, a talented musical producer. He became “The Byrds” manager and encouraged them to cover Bob Dylan song “Mr. Tambourine Man”.

As David Crosby used to tell in his interview, “Bob Dylan voice sounded irritating for me, but he was one of the greatest songwriters of all times, so I liked the idea to cover his song”.

“Mr. Tambourine Man” has become an undoubtedly famous song, which occupied the leading positions in Billboard 100 during 13 weeks in a row.

Later David Crosby cemented his success with new projects and songs. He performed solo and with the bands “Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young” and “CPR”. He released more than 6 studio albums, the most of popular of which – “If I Could Only Remember My Name” was certified as gold.
