An American country rock musician called Crosby died yesterday. He was 81. The number of Indians who have heard of him would not cross 5,000 if that many. Yet, when this newspaper asked me to write about him, I thought I could not refuse. Crosby produced that kind of music.

David Crosby, or just Crosby as he was known, was active as a musician for over 60 years but his heyday was in the late 1960s when he was the leading member of a group called Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (CSNY). The latter two are better known here.
