Starting out with The Byrds in the mid-60s, David Crosby was a key member of two “Supergroups” the first of which was formed in 1969, Crosby, Stills, and Nash (CSN). Later, Neil Young joined to form the second Supergroup, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (CSNY). Directed by Cameron Crowe, who first interviewed Young in 1974, this is a disjointed telling of his story by himself through interviews and archival films.
It covers his infatuation with Joni Mitchell, his horrible addiction to drugs, and pretty much all of his life from the ‘60s to today. Missing is music, although he talks about it a lot. I’m not sure why a documentary about a musician (Crosby wrote, sang, and played the guitar) would not feature lots of the songs that musician wrote and performed. My guess is that they couldn’t get permission from his former cohorts because, to a man, they all abhor him and refuse to talk with him. It is a glaring omission from a film that is an interesting picture of a man who has apparently been arrogant and unlikeable his entire life. But it can’t hold a candle to Echo in the Canyon.
