David Crosby Net Worth & Professional Career
Crosby taped his first solo session with producer Jim Dickson in 1963. He created a Jet Set band the following year with guitarist and vocalist Jim McGuinn and singer-songwriter Gene Clark.
Crosby introduced Jim Dickson, who agreed to be their manager, to the other two artists. The group recorded tracks for their compilation albums “PreFlyte,” “In the Beginning,” and “The PreFlyte Sessions” that would not be released until much later.
Later that year, Dickson hired drummer Michael Clarke solely for his attractive looks, and bassist Chris Hillman completed the quartet.
They joined with Colombia Records in part due to an endorsement from renowned jazz artist Miles Davis. They rebranded as The Byrds shortly after signing. In early 1965, they began recording “The Tambourine Man,” and its B-side “I Knew I’d Want You.”
Before the album’s release, the trio held a residency at Ciro’s Le Disc nightclub on the Sunset Strip, which aided in the group’s performance refinement.
They launched the record in April 1965, and it spent three months at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart. They followed this up with the summer release of “The Tambourine Man.”
It was a commercial success, peaking at number six on the Billboard Top LPs chart and number seven in the United Kingdom.
The CD was instrumental in popularising folk music and establishing the genre’s international reputation. They followed this up with a Bob Dylan-inspired single, “All I Really Want to Do,” which hit number four in the UK but was less successful in the United States.
Crosby took over as the band’s lead songwriter in 1966, when Gene Clark quit. In the spring of that year, they released the single “Eight Miles High.”
It peaked at number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100 but could not ascend higher due to radio stations’ prohibition of references to recreational substances.
Additionally, the band was accused of pushing for drug usage by the “Gavin Report,” a weekly newsletter covering the San Francisco music scene.
They both disputed the charges, as did their publicist. In 1966, they published their third album, “Fifth Dimension,” to critical acclaim and economic success.
Crosby had become increasingly dominated over the band’s creative direction when they released their fourth album, “Younger Than Yesterday,” in 1967.
He had also alienated several of the other members with his outlandish political ideas and was fired in mid-1967, just as the band’s fifth album was about to begin production.
