business news in context, analysis with attitude

David Crosby, the rock musician who moved from the Byrds to Crosby, Stills, Nash & (sometimes) Young, has passed away.  He was 81.

The Associated Press writes that "while he only wrote a handful of widely known songs, the witty and ever opinionated Crosby was on the front lines of the cultural revolution of the ‘60s and ‘70s — whether triumphing with Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young on stage at Woodstock, testifying on behalf of a hirsute generation in his anthem 'Almost Cut My Hair' or mourning the assassination of Robert Kennedy in 'Long Time Gone'."
