A Sad News
A few weeks ago, David Crosby shared the massive impact COVID-19 had on his finances especially since he was supposed to embark on three separate tours this year. But with the coronavirus pandemic putting the touring industry on an indefinite pause, he ended up struggling financially.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the iconic rocker talked about politics, the current state of democracy, and about his health problems. He shared that he suffers from tendonitis which threatens his guitar playing days.
He said, “I get trigger-finger tendonitis in my hands. I went in to get it fixed and it didn’t work. Now I’m in a tremendous amount of pain in my right hand. It’s entirely possible that I may never play guitar again.”
He also admitted that it’s been pretty tough for him especially since his biological son recently died from an opiod overdose, “You ask me how I am? I’m having a hard time keeping my goddamn head above water. I’m a pretty positive guy. I’ve been through a lot. I mean, a lot. I’ve been tested a lot. And it’s hard to slug me down. You punch me, OK, I can’t really fight back. I’m old. But I’ll get back up. And I have been. But I’m loaded up good, man. I’ve got more on my plate then I can handle and I have been crying. I’ll admit it.”
