So he can keep his house and horse farm???
anything released in the vein of 'deja vu' will probably (well, almost certainly) have to have neil young's approval.....now a couple of years ago i would have said forget it, but since eliot roberts is gone, thing might just change.
and what crosby really needs is a full-fledged CSNY tour....about 30 40 dates.
That album is one of my all time favs. Would love to see a box set of some one.
Maybe it should be rushed out (49th Anniversary deluxe edition) to help Cosby.
I'd chip in a few bucks. Been listening to the man since the Byrds. Brought me a lot of enjoyment.
Maybe it’s Croz’s way of trying to get CSNY back together, by pleading broke.
I would love a Deja Vu box though, please make it happen!
I've said it before - I am predicting some CSNY shows fall 2020.
Well, what I get out of this (meaning, his interview) is that even if he DOES outright own his home - which he very well may - he doesn't have any money to live off of outside of his touring & merch income (no savings), and therefore might have to sell his house just to have money to live off of (food, gas, utilities, medical expenses). And remember, even with no mortgage, you might be paying a whale of a property tax bill every year - especially if your house is "very, very nice" as a poster above described it.
Maybe the answer if for CSNY to jointly rent a large house somewhere, forcing them to reunite!
Imagine if this release has live stuff as good as the 1974 Box.
Well... our Arena di Verona is one of the most beauty place to play in.
Neil alreeady was here, years ago.
Tell them I'll be there, OK? September 2020 or May 2021.
Sums it up for me. David has lived a charmed existence to say the least and Lord knows I love him and his music but he should not be facing being homeless just a downsize. I will likely be facing the former if the economy goes belly up. Gonna be tough for everyone to pay the mortgage D.
And I as well!
He should self release live recordings of all his solo tours. If he sets up a band camp and starts selling live shows like Springsteen, that will bring another income stream. Most of these shows can be cleaned up in a studio for a little cash and then release it directly to the buyer. He could also do a streaming pay per view type of concert. Make it a by request live show where people can call in and request a song, perhaps getting some of this other fellow musicians to participate.
I'd think it would be even better because at that time, their individual combined force was still relatively new and immediate. Good as the '74 box was, these performances would sound fresher and energetic.
At one time...if I recall correctly...he did sell audio downloads of some of his concerts on his website. For some reason he stopped doing so.
That is a very good idea. His cultural stature would, I imagine, be a strong argument for such a humanitarian residency in a number of countries. I would be very surprised if he was refused. The only issue would be getting there--private transportation would be needed. Something to consider.
Bottom line is Crosby does not need to tour with his band and all the expenses that come with it - any fan that goes to see him would enjoy an evening of solo David - voice and guitar. He’s made the decision to add these needless expenses. I don’t get it
if you heard his band, either one of them, live, i think you would get it.
with crosby, i want to believe it is all about the music, not the money.
If he owns the house outright, or even has substantial equity, he could reverse mortgage it, not an ideal solution but if it would give him the cash flow for meds it might be the best available.
Hopefully, the Deja Vu reissue will do well sales-wise and put Crosby in the black. I’m definitely in.
For health care, wouldn’t he be on Medicare?
Yeah but Medicare only pays 80 percent. You need supplemental to cover the rest.
As usual, the guy you responded to continues to be a real standup citizen.
Surely there’s a bridge for him to troll under, somewhere.
Does he have a recording studio in his house? If he does, couldn't they all work on the "Deja Vu" reissue there & claim it as a business expense?
Boy, I wish that were the case. I agree with you as to how bad that is, but...I just read “Nobody’s Victim”, about cyberstalking and other vicious behavior, online and off. It’s eye-opening and deeply dispiriting to be reminded of the depths to which some humans can sink, especially when internet anonymity encourages them.
he will never be homeless...I wish him well, but he has many ppl that will give him a hand...more than most these days.
