Sad news that another music legend has passed away. DAVID CROSBY is dead at 81: Singer-songwriter - founding member of influential '60s rock bands The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash - passes away after a 'long illness'. Singer's wife Jan Dance confirmed he died following illness Thursday. She said: 'Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us'. Crosby was a singer and guitarist for The Byrds from 1964-1967. The band had notable hits such as Turn! Turn! Turn! and Mr. Tambourine Man.
