Crosby goes it alone.

After a half century of standing on stage shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most talented musicians of the rock era – both in the Byrds and in Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young) – it took a certain amount of courage to take the spotlight all alone with just an acoustic guitar, as David Crosby did at the sold-out The Egg’s Hart Theatre on a recent Tuesday night.

But over the years, Crosby has endured drug and alcohol abuse, Hepatitis C, Type 2 Diabetes, a liver transplant, numerous arrests and a nine-month stint in a Texas state prison. He’s nothing if not a survivor, and he managed just fine by himself at The Egg. And though it seems nearly impossible considering what he’s put his body through, his voice sounds nearly as good as it did 40 or 50 years ago – warm and vital, sometimes keening, always inviting. At 73, he’s still quite capable of hitting the high notes, although his vocals did waver a bit at times.
