David Crosby: Remember My Name

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“At 77, the white-haired troubadour David Crosby can boast an enviable career as a founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash, as well as a prolific solo artist. Just don’t expect pretty pictures. Directed by A.J. Eaton and produced by Cameron Crowe, the doc doesn’t skip over Crosby’s years as a heroin and cocaine junkie who did five months of Texas prison time on drugs and weapons charges. And it definitely doesn’t soft-peddle his reputation as an SOB who pissed off damn near everyone he’s ever worked with. “I alienated all of them,” says Crosby, and the film is loaded with examples. Roger McGuinn of the Byrds calls him “insufferable.” Graham Nash and Neil Young both let him have it. Joni Mitchell broke up with him with a song… What makes David Crosby: Remember My Name one of the best rock docs of all time is the no-bull immediacy of the filmmaking… Hear him roar” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. R. 95 Min.
