David Crosby has apologized again for the comments he made following Eddie Van Halen’s death that many thought were simply rude.
You’ll recall, Crosby originally responded “meh” when he was asked about Eddie as a guitarist.He argued that Jimmie Hendrix was the guitarist that “changed the world of guitar.”
David later said that his comments were “not cool,” and is once again apologizing.
Crosby tweets, "You will be happy to know that I am reliably informed by the younger members of my family that I am an old idiot and Van Halen was one of the next [sic] guitarists to have ever lived.”
Crosby also added that Eddie, “was an amazing guitarist but I didn’t know that...,” noting, “truth is I never ever listened to that band so I was completely ignorant ....no insult intended....I never listened to any of the big pop rock bands ..I didn’t even own a Led Zep record and they could write.”
