David Crosby Performs Long Time Gone for Jimmy Fallon

David Crosby is doing the promo rounds in the USA and this week dropped by the Jimmy Fallon show to talk up his new biopic and perform his CSN classic ‘Long Time Gone’.

In recent years Crosby has distanced himself from Graham Nash, Stephen Stills and especially Neil Young, but does not discount getting the band back together again. “There is always chance. Never say never,” he told Jimmy Fallon. “I have no bad stuff in my heart about any of those guys. We made too much great music together. I love them. We bashed heads with each other so many times. We were so awful to each other so many times. I think we all know that. About 10 times a day I get a Tweet saying “will you guys get your act together and go out and do your job. You need to be a voice for the people that love”. ‘Ohio’ is stuck in their minds. If they wanted to do a ‘Get Out and Vote’ tour I’d jump on it”.

Crosby has had his most prolific creative period since the 60s. “I’ve made four albums in the last four years,” he said.

The David Crosby biopic was directed by Cameron Crowe, who first interviewed Crosby as a kid in the 70s. “I was 16,” Crowe said. “I was so anxious to interview one of my musical heroes. I had so many questions. He chose to be interviewed by me. He answered every question with the deepest and most ridiculously answers”.

Crosby added, “What I actually did was stick a joint in his mouth and introduce him to a whole bunch of girls”.

“I remember it differently,” Crowe responded.

In the movie Crosby tells of a strange meeting he once had with Jim Morrison of The Doors. “I went to the Whiskey to see The Doors,” Crosby said. “I made the mistake, a friend and I went there on Acid (which you should never do). I am blitzed and he walked by and he pulled my shades off and he went “hi”. I teleported to the other side of the room. I never really liked him much after that. You don’t do that to people who are on Acid”.

‘David Crosby: Remember My Name’ will screen at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 11 and 14. Get tickets here

Bob Dylan still has the ability and surprising agility to shoot the occasional missile deep into our hearts and minds.
