David Crosby, the co-founder and co-lead vocalist of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, has revealed his bookworm side within a conversation on Twitter and recommended his autobiography over Keith Richards‘ and Bruce Springsteen‘s books when a fan of him asked for a suggestion.
The iconic rock vocalist, whose career spans more than 50 years, and quite active Twitter user, David Crosby, has got involved in an interesting chat about books on social media lately. After a follower of Crosby said to him that he doesn’t need any education when he has the power of the mustache, the veteran musician has admitted that he actually reads constantly.
A fan of David Crosby, whose name is Sam Fowler, backed up him and said that books are a real joy. Crosby continued the zestful conversation and unveiled one more fact about himself, that books are slowly eating his house.
Some other bookworm fans of Crosby has appeared in the comments right away. One of them, whose name is Jay Brightman, displayed his own bookshelf, which overflows with the autobiographies of the rock and roll legends such as The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, and Jimi Hendrix.
While showcasing his amazing shelf, Brightman asked for a recommendation among these books from Crosby. David Crosby has reacted with an unexpected answer and advised his fan of his own autobiography, ‘Long Time Gone: The Autobiography of David Crosby.’
The acclaimed book of the rockstar, David Crosby, ‘Long Time Gone: The Autobiography of David Crosby,’ was published in 1988. The autobiography gives readers an inspirational tale of triumph over deadly addiction and offers the most inside story yet of the 1960s generation.
Here’s what the follower of Crosby said while commenting on his mustache:
“When you have the power of the mustache you don’t need no education. Books are for socialists.”
Crosby responded as:
“Bull… And I read constantly.”
A fan of David Crosby, whose name is Sam Fowler, supported Crosby and said:
“This is perhaps the stupidest thing on the internet today. Books are a real joy.”
David Crosby agreed with him and admitted that:
“I second that… Books are slowly eating my house.”
Right after that, another fan of David Crosby got involved in the conversation by sharing a photo of his bookshelf. The fan, whose name is Jay Brightman, also asked Crosby:
“What’s on your shelf that you would recommend?”
