The legendary musician and New York Times bestselling author returns with his latest candid chronicle.
A true rock-and-roll survivor, David Crosby has not slowed down since his New York Times bestselling memoir Long Time Gone. Life continues to be full of amazing ups and downs for the founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Reunited with his adult son while awaiting a liver transplant, becoming a famous sperm donor (to Melissa Etheridge and Julie Cypher), coming back from a crippling motorcycle accident, losing his house in an earthquake, and through it all making beautiful music, David Crosby once again reveals all with self-skewering humor and honesty-as only he can.

David Crosby, the legendary singer/songwriter/bandleader of The Byrds, and the "first initial" of CSNY, is a two-time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
Carl Gottlieb wrote the screenplay for Jaws and co-wrote the New York Times bestseller Long Time Gone with David Crosby.From Booklist:
It's been 18 years since Crosby and Gottlieb's first tome on the former's lurid rock-star life, Long Time Gone (1988), and the Croz hasn't stopped making news. He survived an earthquake and near-death experiences involving a motorcycle, hepatic failure, and arterial disease. He has done exemplary service as a major, major substance abuser who cleaned up; returned to recording and performing with Nash, Stills, and sometimes even Young; been arrested in New York City for possessing a gun and some weed; endured the recovered drug-abuser community's tut-tutting over his "fall" after 16 years' sobriety; and become a celebrity political activist. Less known but well reported here, Crosby lost all his money (his manager-accountant had an investing jones that he slaked with his clients' cash) just as the earthquake hit and a liver transplant loomed. He met a son given up for adoption as an infant in 1961--and formed a new band with him--and then a daughter from another relationship. He and his fellow ex-abuser wife, Jan, finally succeeded in having a child, now 11. His estranged and hermetic older brother died a suicide. He joined a fight (still not over) against a land deal that would put a casino in his backyard. All that, and personal assessments of the popular music biz (interesting) and the political situation (standard so-called lefty ranting, not well informed), with the whole shebang presented in movielike achronology and bolstered by plenty of Crosby acquaintances' interpolated testimonies, makes for a packed but absorbing book.
