The founding member and co-lead vocalist of Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby, posted a tweet on his Twitter account and responded in frustration to those who claimed that he has earned a lot of money from a popular movie he appeared in.
As you probably know, David Crosby is so active on social media that he has become a social media personality. As he is so popular on social media, Crosby often gets messages which upset him.
Recently, one of his followers offended David Crosby about the availability of his music which angered Crosby a lot. Yet, later, the user deleted their tweet directed to Crosby.
Here’s how Crosby responded:
“All of my music has been and will be available on vinyl. I’m sorry you missed it. Are you deaf dumb and blind?”
After that, the conversation turned to the movie that Crosby had made an appearance in years ago. The documentary ‘Woodstock‘ was released back in 1970 and as a part of that generation’s rock culture, David Crosby had also appeared in the documentary.
Here’s what Crosby’s follower stated:
“David’s not playing today. Is he getting asked about Woodstock residuals and the availability of vinyl? Is this 2020 or 1975?”
While this conversation extended far more than it should have, Crosby became even angrier, as his followers kept arguing that he is still earning money whenever ‘Woodstock’ appears somewhere.
In order to conclude this discussion, Crosby posted one last tweet and clarified why he does not make any money out of the film even though he has appeared in it. However, he added that the film did increase their fame.
Here’s what Crosby said:
“Only the owners of the film make money. We weren’t paid to be in it and none of the artists made any money. In fact, I don’t even know if they paid any publishing… The point is that I didn’t make squat off it, in money. Now, it did help make us famous I guess.”
