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 a follower who asked him an implied question about the ‘Metallica v. Napster, Inc.’ case.

As you probably know, David Crosby enjoys using social media, especially his Twitter account to share his views on various matters and interact with his followers. In fact, he is so active on Twitter that we can even say that he has become a social media personality.

However, being so active on social media also means receiving negative comments and messages which often frustrate Crosby. Recently, Crosby was asked about selling his records and whether he is following Metallica’s footsteps on their lawsuit against Napster Inc.

Everything started when a Twitter user shared the news of Bob Dylan selling his songs because he cannot perform live. He tagged Crosby and asked whether he is doing the same thing.

Crosby responded by saying that he is, as the streaming company stole his record money and he has to provide for his family. This raised a lot of questions and numerous followers posted Crosby’s net worth saying that he’s worth millions.

Here’s what Crosby said in his tweet:

“I am selling mine also I can’t work and streaming stole my record money… I have a family and a mortgage and I have to take care of them so it’s my only option. I’m sure the others feel the same.”

The same user who asked the question responded to Crosby and claimed that he is worth millions and that he is whining just like Metallica was in their Napster case. As you probably remember Metallica filed a lawsuit in 2000 against Napster, a peer-to-peer file-sharing website, for leaking the band’s entire catalog.

Here’s what a Twitter user responded to Crosby’s tweet:

“Aren’t you worth millions? Is this like Metallica complaining about Napster?”

To which Crosby responded with a simple:

“I am not.”

Then another Twitter user responded to Crosby by saying that Metallica recently released Monopoly’s Metallica version which could bring some money into his pocket. He said that ‘Croz’s Twister‘ might be a good idea.

Here’s what a user said to Crosby:

“The game Monopoly has a Metallica version coming out. Might be some good royalties for you. Probably not Monopoly. Maybe Croz’s Twister?”

This comment frustrated Crosby who probably misunderstood the aim of his follower’s tweet and said that the user must have confused him with a member of Metallica or that he’s extremely drunk.

Even though Crosby did not direct his frustration to the correct person, no one can deny the fact that it can be highly frustrating to receive criticism and negative comments after opening up about something that personal.

Here’s what Crosby responded:

“Maybe you thought I was in Metallica, or maybe you’re drunk on your ass.”
