David Crosby passed away in the middle of his preparation for his comeback tour.
The late rocker was doing several rehearsals and was eyeing to hit the road this summer, said his friends and collaborators. Guitarist Steve Postell, who was poised to be included in the tour said:
“David didn’t think he was gonna last for years, which he joked about all the time. But there was no sense that we weren’t gonna be able to do this show and these tours.
“We were talking tour buses, and what kind of venues, and the whole team was all back together again — the road manager and tour manager and sound guys — on top of this band we’d put together.
“There was not even a remote sense that we weren’t about ready to hit the world. And it’s a shame people didn’t get to hear it.”
Crosby made a very brave decision by trying to do a trek again, considering that he had previously insisted his touring days were over. The folk singer declared during a 2022 interview:
“I’m too old to do it anymore.
“I’m too old to do it anymore. I don’t have the stamina. I don’t have the strength.”
Postell also insisted that his friend was a bit lightheaded about this tour. He recalled:
“He was showing us new songs, like, ‘What do you think of these lyrics?’ He hadn’t lost the fire. I’d like people to know that he was on it. He was writing, playing, singing his ass off and preparing a fantastic show. That’s what he was doing. He was not lying in a bed for two years, out of it. That’s not what happened at all.”
