David Crosby left an inspiring party advice years before his death.
In 2021, Crosby responded to a reader who asked him about the things he hoped for in his generation. For what it’s worth, the musician notably said he wanted his generation to be full of “peace, love, and understanding.”
His answer at that time became heartfelt advice for everyone. According to the “Almost Cut My Hair” hitmaker, he asked himself the same thing.
“I’m an idealist. I wanted to think that we could do better. I think there is an innate goodness in human beings and that it’s natural for them to head that way,” he said, per Ultimate Classic Rock and Culture.
The column also highlighted his statement about President Joe Biden after a reader expressed their dissatisfaction with the current POTUS. Crosby told everyone that Biden is “trying his best.”
Crosby then continued his advice, positively making everyone understand that human beings are trying to evolve. While he had no idea whether the public would make it, he chose to believe because he needed to do so.
In the latter part of the interview, he told everyone not to lose their idealism and “keep trying” to prevent anything from getting worse.
David Crosby’s death was announced by his family, saying that the 81-year-old died after a long illness.
