As we've established, David Crosby has played alongside several all-time great musicians. However, it would seem that many of them still don't want anything more to do with him — mostly due to the caustic comments he made in the past. In the 2019 documentary David Crosby: Remember My Name (via AZCentral), the veteran rocker admitted that his difficult personality has estranged him from multiple ex-bandmates. "I still have friends, but all the main guys I made music with won't even talk to me," Crosby further lamented. "[Roger] McGuinn, [Graham] Nash, Neil [Young] and Stephen [Stills] all really dislike me. Strongly."
For those keeping track, that's the voice behind most of the Byrds' biggest hits, as well as three-fourths of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, who remain at odds with the two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer. Nash said on the documentary that Crosby can't take back some of the nasty things he said in anger, while Young vowed never to return to CSN&Y after Crosby insulted his then-girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, by calling her a "purely poisonous predator." According to Rolling Stone, Crosby apologized profusely to Young and Hannah (who tied the knot in 2018) on the Howard Stern Show, though he maintained that he made those remarks because he was concerned that Young might be taken advantage of.
Crosby wrapped up the documentary by pondering his mortality and expressing a desire to make peace with his former bandmates. "I think you should be able to say goodbye and tell them what they meant to you," he said.
