RIP David Crosby. As a member of The Byrds, 1 of the historically essential Artists that created the Artform of Rock. The Byrds, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, Beach Boys & Yardbirds, showed future generations like us what was possible. We owe him, and them, everything.— ???Stevie Van Zandt???

Gutted to hear about David Crosby?s passing. Before I started buying my own records I listened to my dad?s. This one was huge for me. I learned to love music & harmonies from these guys. This song is one of my favorites. https://t.co/eMNy4EKwMo— Noodles (@TheGnudz) January 19, 2023
He was without question a giant of a musician, and his harmonic sensibilities were nothing short of genius.— Stephen Stills Official (@Stephen__Stills) January 20, 2023
The glue that held us together as our vocals soared, like Icarus, towards the sun.
I am deeply saddened at his passing and shall miss him beyond measure.? 3/3

"I read a quote in this morning?s paper attributed to composer Gustav Mahler that stopped me for a moment:
'Death has, on placid cat?s paws, entered the room.'

Tom counted David Crosby as a friend and a hero. He visited often at his house in the valley. He was funny, provocative and electric with talent. His contribution to music will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and love to his family, bandmates and fans. pic.twitter.com/JsUOj2xT5R— Tom Petty (@tompetty) January 19, 2023

1/5 Hi friends, David Crosby meant so much to me. Those first four Byrds albums helped shape who I am as a musician. I heard ?Mr Tambourine Man? on the radio, and immediately traded my Gibson ES 335 for a Rickenbacker electric 12-string. pic.twitter.com/8Cf7K10ZIZ— REO Speedwagon (@kcreospeedwagon) January 20, 2023
