The founding member and co-lead vocalist of Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Byrds, David Crosby, recently posted a tweet and responded to a Twitter user’s question about his relationship with The Beatles and whether he joined them while they were trying LSD.
As you probably know, David Crosby is one of the musicians who are the most active on social media. He often enjoys using his Twitter account to share his views on music, life, the latest rock-world news, and politics. He also likes interacting with his followers and tries to respond to all the questions they ask.
Recently, one of his followers told Crosby that it would be amazing to chat with him. When Crosby gave him the go-ahead, the user asked him whether he was at Zsa Zsa Gabor’s house when The Byrds and The Beatles dropped LSD with Peter Fonda around 1965.
Here’s what the user asked David Crosby:
“Ok! where you there the time the Beatles and the Byrds dropped together with Peter Fonda at Zsa Zsa Gabor’s house in LA, around 1965? And if so, was everyone enjoying Owsley?”
For those of you who don’t know, Zsa Zsa Gabor’s house in Beverly Hills is known to be ‘The Beatles party-house‘ and the band members said that it played a very important role in the band’s career and the relationship between the band members.
During the five-day break of their 1965 North America tour, The Beatles rented a house owned by Zsa Zsa Gabor and they were visited by a number of people including Roger McGuinn and David Crosby from The Byrds, Peter Fonda, and Owsley Stanley.
On their second day off, John Lennon and George Harrison had their second LSD experience, while Ringo Starr tried it for the first time. Owsley Stanley was a popular LSD producer and supplier, which for the record was not illegal back then. Thus, Gabor’s house came to be known as The Beatles party house.
It should not come as a surprise that the user used his opportunity to interact with Crosby to ask about the day he spent with The Beatles at their part house. However, it seems like everything that happened that day will remain a secret forever as Crosby’s response was a simple ‘nope.’
Here is how Crosby responded to the question about The Beatles:
