“If I’m going to do something difficult, he’s usually my first choice,” reveals David Crosby about his choice to collaborate with his son, James Raymond, on the song “Home Free” from the movie, “Little Pink House.” In our recent chat with the music legend (watch the exclusive video above), he adds that his son is the best songwriter with whom he has worked over the years: “The other thing is that he writes for film anyway and he’s very good at it… What I’ve learned from him is to not be afraid and be as complex and strange with the music as I want to be. Don’t water it down.” The film is based on the story of Susette Kelo, a nurse whose property and that of her neighbors in a Connecticut town are being seized by the government under eminent domain in an attempt to hand the land over to the Pfizer Corporation. Kelo became the lead plaintiff in a case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court (Kelo v. City of New London) in 2005. While the Court ultimately ruled against Kelo’s side in a 5-4 decision, the ruling sparked many states to pass laws reforming and restricting how eminent domain can be used. Crosby initially got involved with the movie through his friend, Jeff Benedict, who wrote the book the film was based on and also because Crosby felt so strongly for the story’s protagonist. But even with his passionate feelings about the subject matter, Crosby is very proud of the fact that the song “is not heavy handed. It’s not, ‘YOU TOOK MY HOUSE AND YOU ARE BAD GUYS!’ It’s about her love for the house. That’s what made me really feel like there was something there to say.” If Crosby and Raymond were to get nominated and win the Oscar for Best Original Song, his family would join only two other families (the Huston’s and the Coppola’s) that have three generations of Oscar winners. Crosby’s father, Floyd Crosby, was a director of photography who won Best Cinematography in 1930/31 (4th Academy Awards) for F.W. Murnau’s film, “Tabu: A Story of the South Seas.” Crosby still has his father’s Oscar and has actually learned a lot of how to handle accolades from him. “My dad didn’t take the Oscar that seriously. Early on he used it as a door stop,” he says. “His lesson to me, although he didn’t actually say it, I got it from what he did, was ‘Don’t be too impressed with the prizes and awards. The respect of your peers, that’s a genuine thing.'” That being said, Crosby does feel that he’s at a point in his life where the honor would mean a lot to him. “Now I would be completely impressed with it, probably more than my father was by a long shot. I would be thrilled to win.” Crosby has enjoyed many awards honors himself throughout his career. He is a two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

In July 2018, I wrote an article about Trump’s Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh. There was much excitement about him among those who are opposed to abortion because he claims to be Catholic. I cautioned and said the Kavanaugh should not be trusted because he has supported abortion before, and that if the opportunity came […]
