DAVID CROSBY CONTINUES VAN HALEN MEA CULPA WRITES, “I AM AN OLD IDIOT”
David Crosby is continuing his apology tour about his insensitive tweet(s) about the passing of legendary rock guitarist, Eddie Van Halen.
On October 21st, Crosby wrote on Twitter, “You will be happy to know that I am reliably informed by the younger members of my family that I am an old idiot and Van Halen was one of the [best] guitarists to have ever lived.”
After a Twitter follower told him that he “blew the Eddie Van Halen thing”, Crosby replied, “I did. He was an amazing guitarist but I didn’t know that. Truth is I never ever listened to that band so I was completely ignorant. No insult intended. I never listened to any of the big pop rock bands. I didn’t even own a Led Zep record and they could write.”
Van Halen tragically passed away on October 6th, after battling cancer.
