David Crosby Disrespects Layne Staley & Chris Cornell


David Crosby, of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young and The Byrds fame, said he does not like Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, or Eddie Vedder’s music in a new fan Q&A. Crosby recently said he wasn’t a fan of Eddie Van Halen after his death. Jerry Cantrell just confirmed a new Alice In Chains release with Layne Staley.

What is your opinion on 90s Grunge? Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Mad Season, Temple of the Dog etc. I remember Tom Petty said he was a fan because it was the antithesis of the 80s hair metal.

“I did not like any of those bands.”

Do you still love Neil?

“I love his music …..hmm ..do I still love the guy ?….probably yes … it’s not like a faucet you can turn on and off …he’s pissed off at me and we will probably never light off that chemistry again …but yeah now that I think about it …yes.”

Do you have a favorite Halloween costume you ever dressed up as?

“When Lily Collins was a child she used to call me the pea man because I love green peas …so her mom had a costume made I was a four foot across giant pea in green tights and curled up shoes ..it was spectacular …we went trick or treating for Halloween.”

Any song or artist recommendations for this week Croz??

“Have you heard Sarah Jarosz ? New record is Life On The Ground …superb ….beautifully produced also …really fine writing..best vocal sound ever…and she is just very very good.”
