Jenn Rohm Reviews "David Crosby: Remember My Name"
For anyone familiar with the music of the 1960s and 1970s, the name David Crosby is one that is synonymous with this era. From his solo work to work with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, The Byrds, and other collaborations, his influence was instrumental in the folk music movement. With 2019 being the fiftieth anniversary of “the summer of love” and Woodstock, a new documentary about his life and career has been released called “David Crosby: Remember My Name”.
Still with us and performing at the age of seventy-seven, this film tells his story from a childhood spent with esteemed cinematographer Floyd Crosby to his entry into the music business and the choices (good and bad) that he has made along the way. Given the time that he has lived in, there is a lot of footage to show from stills (no pun intended) to home movies to tell the story of this amazing man. There is even footage of an interview he did alongside The Beatles where the interviewer asked “who their friend was”.
Regardless of whether or not you are well-versed in his life and work or not, “David Crosby: Remember My Name” is an intriguing and in-depth look at the experiences of a man during a time of change in music, politics, and our country in general.
