wow! i'm digging this...

I've been saying that the oil companies haved owned EVERYTHING, including our politicians, for decades.

For these icons to be saying this makes me very happy. I don't care what you say, I was there! And 4 dead in Ohio galvanized a generation and helped usher Nixon out the door. He was not missed!

It will happen again. Prepare to fill the void and stand in the gap with DPers and ORIGINAL Ron Paul tea partyers!!!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!

If you are not aware of the FACTS presented in the link from the above post you are missing critical info to form opinions about David Crosby, Graham Nash and many other icons of the 60's music and ...
scene.

I think you will find the above information fascinating as well as a very important addition to your knowledge of that time and the players involved.

I encourage all to independently verify the information presented in the link.

Thanks for this post-I am always interested in the latest activities of these two and other music/culture notables of that time.

P.S. Here is an excerpt:

"Another of those icons, and one of Laurel Canyon’s most flamboyant residents, is a young man by the name of David Crosby, founding member of the seminal Laurel Canyon band the Byrds, as well as, of course, Crosby, Stills & Nash. Crosby is, not surprisingly, the son of an Annapolis graduate and WWII military intelligence officer, Major Floyd Delafield Crosby. Like others in this story, Floyd Crosby spent much of his post-service time traveling the world. Those travels landed him in places like Haiti, where he paid a visit in 1927, when the country just happened to be, coincidentally of course, under military occupation by the U.S. Marines. One of the Marines doing that occupying was a guy that we met earlier by the name of Captain Claude Andrew Phillips.

But David Crosby is much more than just the son of Major Floyd Delafield Crosby. David Van Cortlandt Crosby, as it turns out, is a scion of the closely intertwined Van Cortlandt, Van Schuyler and Van Rensselaer families. And while you’re probably thinking, “the Van Who families?,” I can assure you that if you plug those names in over at Wikipedia, you can spend a pretty fair amount of time reading up on the power wielded by this clan for the last, oh, two-and-a-quarter centuries or so. Suffice it to say that the Crosby family tree includes a truly dizzying array of US senators and congressmen, state senators and assemblymen, governors, mayors, judges, Supreme Court justices, Revolutionary and Civil War generals, signers of the Declaration of Independence, and members of the Continental Congress. It also includes, I should hasten to add – for those of you with a taste for such things – more than a few high-ranking Masons. Stephen Van Rensselaer III, for example, reportedly served as Grand Master of Masons for New York. And if all that isn’t impressive enough, according to the New England Genealogical Society, David Van Cortlandt Crosby is also a direct descendant of ‘Founding Fathers’ and Federalist Papers’ authors Alexander Hamilton and John Jay."

thanks gmason

And thanks for posting the info about the Laural Canyon crew. I read all 27 parts and I look at, not only music, but everything differently now. I considered myself fairly awake, but this made me look at everything differently because if they can infultrate our music, which to many energizes the soul, then they can pull the strings anywhere, and when you look for it you can see it everywhere. This series gave me some insights into how they do it, like endless promotion (of truely tallentless clowns) through everything from the gong show to time and newsweek magazine.

Glad you found it informative HS and thanks for the thanks

I may have to clarify my comment above because I am afraid those that have not read "LC" will think I am supporting the notion that DC and company are a) coming around and or b) a source to trust to get the straight skinny when there is ample evidence to the contrary.

Read the strange but true tale linked and weep.

On the sole bright side it is a fascinating, enthralling read that, once again, supports the axiom that "Truth is Stranger than Fiction" and is therefore far more interesting.

Well look who just may be

Well look who just may be rethinking the Left Right paradigm and considering the real battle of freedom vs. tyranny...
Do you think they get it yet, that supporting the far left was a mistake?
