DAVID CROSBY - Secret power reserves

"I've wasted a lot of time being completely drugged. I stopped writing, I was in prison, I was a wreck. But since I know I don't have much time left, I'm trying to do the best job I can." David Crosby is not only advertising his sixth solo album, he also thinks he is on a real mission: as one of the last political singer-songwriters of the USA and bulwark against the "toupee-carrying disaster on two legs", as he calls Trump.

On "Sky Trails" he contrasts this with hippie ideals such as love and harmony, but also finds clear words against racism, the influence of multinationals and corrupt representatives of the people. "We have only four politicians with consciences. The rest is trash that sells itself to the economy. This started a long time ago, with the railroad and oil barons. Today they own everything and everyone. They just call and say, "We need a war. So go ahead. That's what happens. These guys rule the country."

In Concert 1974

The star is the music. This was always the credo of Pink Floyds. Nothing should distract from the music and its sound, primarily not the musicians themselves. Nevertheless, the English formation had already had a reputation on their psychedelic days for offering their audience live happenings rather than concerts.
