David Van Cortlandt Crosby was an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter who was born on August 14, 1941 and died on January 18, 2023. In addition to his solo career, he was a founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
Crosby and Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke started the band Byrds in 1964. From 1964 to 1967, Byrds set the tone for folk-rock music in the 1960s. Then, in 1968, Crosby got together with Stephen Stills of Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash of the Hollies to make Crosby, Stills & Nash. The band was put in the Hall of Fame in 1997.
The singer of “For What It’s Worth” died on January 19, 2023. His wife, Jan Dance, told Variety that this was true. “It’s very sad that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has died after a long illness. He was cared for by his wife Jan, who was also his soulmate, and by his son Django. “Even though he is no longer with us, his good heart and humanity will continue to guide and inspire us,” she said at the beginning of her statement.

David was married to Jan Dance, his soulmate, for almost 40 years. Before this musician’s untimely death in 2023, the couple had been married for 36 years and were very much in love. Even though they got married in 1987, it was clear from David’s tweets about Jan that their love story began a long time before that. The late 81-year-old man took to Twitter two years before he died to share an old picture of his wife and write about how long he had loved her. He wrote in the post’s caption, “You can see why I love her…46 years so far.”
The Grammy winner also shared a photo of his “Valentine” on Twitter on February 14, 2022. This was a bittersweet way to remember her. David wrote in the photo’s caption last year, “Me, my Valentine, and some nice trees on Valentine’s Day.” The US Sun says that Jan and her late husband met when she worked as a receptionist at Criteria Studios. They later got married in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Church of Religious Science.
