David Crosby is still hot on the publicity trail for his critically acclaimed new documentary, David Crosby: Remember My Name. During a chat with CloserWeekly.com, he was asked if the movie should be considered an olive branch to his former partners — Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, and fellow Byrds co-founder Roger McGuinn. “Croz” explained, “Some people read it that way. I’m not really. . . I’ve already apologized to those guys for most of the things that I think I should have apologized for — the biggest one, of course, being me turning myself into a junkie. That was the worst thing I did to any of them. But I don’t think there’s an entity there to apologize to. That band is history. It’s done. We did good work. I’m proud of it and I’m doing what I’m doing now. I’ve got no bad stuff in my heart for any of those guys. They’re all OK and I wish them well. I want them to have good lives.”

When asked about his old friend and former flame Joni Mitchell, Crosby revealed, “I had dinner at her house a couple months back and we talked. And I love her. I don’t think she’s happy with me, but I don’t think she’s really happy with anybody. I love her dearly, and I think she certainly was the best singer-songwriter of all of us.”

Crosby was asked about his rather large brood of children: “Erika has three kids, lives in Florida and is an incredibly smart, wonderful woman who I visit regularly because I love her dearly. Donovan doesn’t really talk to me. Django lives with me and is an absolute joy. I don’t parent Bailey and Beckett, the two with Melissa (Etheridge and her ex-partner Julie Cypher), but I do love them. Beckett’s somewhere in Colorado and Bailey just graduated from NYU today.”

Crosby spoke about the close bond the Beatles and the Byrds shared in the mid-'60s, remembering, “They knew about the Byrds as soon as we had a hit with 'Mr. Tambourine Man.' They knew that we were trying to change things, so they were extremely kind to us. They said a lot of really kind things about us that helped us get started, and when we went to England, they befriended us and had us over. We had dinner, we talked, we jammed. . . “

When we last caught up with David Crosby, we asked him about how back in the Byrds' mid-'60s heyday, the “Fab Four” took him and Roger McGuinn on as personal confidantes and musical peers: “They were extremely bright cats; not, y'know, reserved intellectuals from expensive schools — these were kids off the street who had smarts. Real smarts. And a tremendous amount of talent. And hangin' out with them, y'know, it was difficult, because there was such an intense sphere of people. . . y'know, a lotta pressure. It was very difficult for them to get five minutes to themselves. The time that I did spend with them, we spent very privately and doing ordinary things. Playin' guitar, laying out by the pool, talkin,' playing music for each other that we had recorded. Y'know, stuff that was all the more precious because it wasn't a big deal. I loved showin' John Lennon a chord he hadn't seen before. Good cats. And they were very nice to us. Drove us home from gigs, invited us over for dinner, came to our shows. They were as nice as they could be.”
