David Crosby, a founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, and star of such films as Backdraft and Thunderheart has a Twitter account.
He uses his Twitter fairly regularly, and yesterday, he shared his opinions on punk rock, and let’s just say I don’t think he’ll ever be coming to Riot Fest.
Is David Crosby a fan of punk rock at any level? No. In fact, he thinks it’s “crappy music“.
Here is a list of bands that David Crosby thinks are dumb stuff with no musical value at all and childish lyrics: Descendents, Hot Water Music, Talking Heads, New York Dolls, Ramones, The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Stooges, The Damned, Fugazi, NoMeansNo, The Jam, Minutemen, The Replacements, The Stranglers, X, Devo, The Velvet Underground, The Pogues, Gang Of Four.
What about Patti Smith? He’s got to like Patti Smith at least, right? No. Not his thing.

UPDATE: David Crosby will not be attending Riot Fest.
