Neil Young pays tribute to David Crosby: 'Love you man'

Legendary rocker Neil Young paid tribute to former Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmate David Crosby.

Young's website posted that "David is gone, but his music lives on."

Crosby's family announced Thursday that David Crosby died at the age of 81.

Young paid tribute to David, saying that "his great songs stood for what we believed in and it was always fun and exciting when we played together."

Young ended his tribute to David by saying, "Thank you David for your spirit and songs, love you man. I remember the best times!"

Crosby said in a statement in 2019 that "when you meet, when you start a band, you're in love with each other."

Stephen Stills and Graham Nash also paid tribute to David Crosby.

Stills said, "It is only the memory of such a unique and fulfilling life that should keep us going through this time of deep sorrow."
