Get excited – David Crosby, the one who writes “the weird shit” has announced UK dates for this September. Don’t get too excited, it’s not what we’d call a tour. It’s two dates – Manchester at the Palace Theatre on September 15th, and then on the 16th it’s the Shepherds Bush Empire in that far flung corner of London that is Shepherds Bush. The dates are listed as Crosby & friends, so we’re guessing Nash, Stills and Young won’t be popping up – far more likely is the evolved CPR who are now the nucleus of the Lighthouse Band – playing on ‘Lighthouse’ and Crosby’s last album ‘Skytrails’.

David Crosby has shared the title track with Billboard from his forthcoming third solo album “Sky Trails” which he wrote with singer songwriter Becca Stevens. He told them: “We both spend a lot of time on the road and when you’re on the road, after the second or third week you don’t know where you are. You’re out there somewhere, and all the cities look roughly the same, and you lose track. I know it sounds funny, but it happens to us road musicians all the time, and that leads to a kind of disorientation. There’s no instruction book for this, you know?” But there is David!

You can always trust David Crosby to speak his mind and today is no exception. Spin reports: “This morning, the Nuge visited the Donald at the White House, along with the Bullgod and the Sarah Palin. The strange crew–that’s Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, and Sarah Palin, if you’re not following–showed up at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for what amounted to a photo op with the president, and the pics went mildly viral this morning. Someone told the folk-rock great and Twitter hero David Crosby about it, and the Croz pulled no punches in his assessment of the situation. Here’s what he had to say: Continue reading “David Crosby on Trump and Ted Nugent: “what a pair of assholes””
