By the time this interview was recorded in 1989, David Crosby had been, in his own words, to rock bottom, including stints in rehab and in prison (serving 9 months of a 5-year sentence). But by all appearances, it sounds here like Crosby was back. Indeed, Scott Muni is able to focus on how these experiences were channeled into Crosby's new prolific output. Specific topics are Crosby's new autobiography, his new solo album, and plans for projects with both Graham Nash and The Byrds.
