David Crosby was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice as a founding member of two seminal rock and roll bands, The Byrds, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. His remarkable harmonies with both bands are among the seminal sounds of the 1970’s and his songwriting credits include the classics “Déjà Vu,” “Almost Cut My Hair,” and “Eight Miles High.”
