David Crosby

David Crosby has been one very active Twitter user over the last few days, taking and answering hundreds of questions from fans.

Along with calling Kanye West an ‘idiot and a poser’ and Joni Mitchell a ‘nut’, the biggest controversy out of the Q&A (so far) has been Crosby’s opinion on the band Phish. Fans of the band, who can be vehemently cruel to those who criticize them, attacked Crosby numerous times:
‘You’re talkin shit about Phish? Go to a show.’
No ‘shit ‘ I’m just not impressed with their playing
Awhile later, though, Crosby came back to admit that he might have been wrong about the band:
I was wrong .must have been a grump that morning .I needed to hear them live and I never have. they can play
Ok .I read Treys RS piece and he is being very cool ..he get its about Jerry and the Dead
Had to re listen to the Phish stuff you all .
Crosby’s dislike wasn’t kept to just West and Phish. He also had some very choice things to say about Mike Love of the Beach Boys and Jim Morrison. On the other hand, he was very kind to numerous other musicians.
The following are just a few of the music related questions that Crosby has answered. Go to his Twitter feed to see the full list (and it is hundreds long) along with any new Tweets:
