David Crosby - David Crosby Pens Jerry Garcia Birthday Poem
Crosby, Stills & Nash star DAVID Crosby has marked what would have been pal Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday with a poem.
The rocker will read Cause I'm Missing Jerry Tonight during a show at Bob Weir's venue in San Rafael, California on Friday (03Aug12).
The heartfelt poem begins: "If I had to pick one of us to speak for us all/He would have done the job well/Coming from some crazy angle/He'd have known which story to tell/He'd tell the truth about real music/He knew the truth long before he fell..."
Garcia died of a heart attack in August, 1995, just days after celebrating his 53rd birthday.
