Quote: "I got in trouble on Twitter saying Kanye West was an idiot. I still think he's an idiot... Kanye West can't write, sing or play. So I have trouble with him as anything but a poser. Produce? That means he sits in a chair while the engineer does the work. He's a poser! And I’m not backing off it." Veteran rocker David Crosby is not backing down on social media comments he made about rapped Kanye.
Quote: "Punk? There's no excuse for making bad music, man. Just because you're being rude and frighteningly dramatic doesn't mean you can't have songs. Bad attitude is no substitute for great music like Joni Mitchell or James Taylor. By the way, I thought disco f**king sucked, too." Veteran rocker David Crosby is still a musical purist after 50 years in the industry.
