The long-awaited trailer to the new David Crosby documentary, Remember My Name has made its way online. Crosby is seen talking about his amazement at surviving his illnesses and addictions, the fact that none of his former musical partners want anything to do with him, as well as reflecting on his creative resurgence, which is going strong at age 77.
Remember My Name was directed by A.J. Eaton, executive produced by Cameron Crowe, and is set to hit theaters on July 19th in New York City and L.A. before seeing a nationwide release.
Last summer, David Crosby announced he was seeking a licensing relationship with a national or global Cannabis company, which would provide the exclusive license of his iconic name and likeness for worldwide use. Crosby, who plans to use his brand name “Mighty Croz” as a tip of the hat to his legendary nickname “Croz,” will “actively advise the selected Cannabis company in developing and marketing the brand.”
Although Crosby remains a regular pot smoker for both health issues as well as recreationally, he told us that he never tokes up before hitting the stage: “When you're young, you feel like you're bullet-proof and you're gonna live forever. And, and young bands, y'know, some, still do get totally wrecked to play. I don't think you'll find anybody in the singer-songwriter milieu that still wants to be wrecked when they try to play. What we do requires that you be really on top of it to pull it off.”
