The critically acclaimed David Crosby documentary, Remember My Name, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday (October 22nd). Remember My Name was directed by A.J. Eaton, executive produced by Cameron Crowe, and features the then-77-year-old Crosby talking about his amazement at surviving his illnesses and addictions, the fact that none of his former musical partners want anything to do with him, as well as reflecting on his creative resurgence.
According to the press release for David Crosby: Remember My Name:
With unflinching honesty, self-examination, regret, fear, exuberance and an unshakable belief in family and the transformative nature of music, Crosby shares his often-challenging journey with humor and bite. This inspirational story, filled with music, will speak to loyal fans, and legions of new ones.
Although David Crosby remains a regular pot smoker for both health issues as well as recreationally, he told us that he never tokes up before hitting the stage: “When you're young, you feel like you're bullet-proof and you're gonna live forever. And, and young bands, y'know, some, still do get totally wrecked to play. I don't think you'll find anybody in the singer-songwriter milieu that still wants to be wrecked when they try to play. What we do requires that you be really on top of it to pull it off.”
While at the Sundance Film Festival promoting Remember My Name, Crosby spoke with TheWrap.com and was asked about what he would say to his estranged friend and partner, Graham Nash: “'Probably tell him that I love him, 'cause that's the highest of the emotions that I feel about it. That's the best that I got. We sing wonderfully together and we made incredibly good music together. All four of us in that band have been horrible to each other (laughs) many times. One of us has left another of us in the middle of a tour, just hangin' — 'See ya, bye! Deal with it' We've done a lot of weird beep to each other. So, if I had a chance to talk to him, I'd sit down and say, 'Hey, y'know, I haven't changed, I'm still the same beep – beep you started with in the first place.”
