David Crosby is promising fans that for better or worse, his upcoming documentary “Remember My Name,” due for release on July 19th, is brutally honest. Speaking to Billboard, Crosby says not to expect some kind of fluff piece, he had “nowhere to hide” during the making of the doc.
In fact, Crosby thinks that the honesty of the documentary is enough to “qualify as an apology” for his past mistakes. “It’s a very difficult film for me, playing a flawed human being, highly imperfect,” he notes. “If you are trying to look at me as a whole picture, you can’t leave that stuff out, otherwise it’s like cooking meat with no salt.”
When it comes to his checkered past with his Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmates, Crosby admits that bands can be like marriages. “You start out, you love each other, you love each other’s music… [but] we were a very competitive band,” he notes. “We were also unkind and disloyal to each other over and over and over again.”
