A few days ago, we posted about a controversial tweet posted by folk musician David Crosby, where a fan asked Crosby of his opinion on legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen after his sudden death. Being his honest self, Crosby responded with a simple "meh."
Fans felt he was being a bit disrespectful to somebody who had passed. When somebody responded to Crosby that his tweet was rude and lacking empathy, he quipped back "Sorry ..just meant he does not move me much." Last night, Crosby clarified his comments, and posted a mea culpa to Van Halen fans.
Crosby wrote "yes you Van Halen fans I did just toss off an answer that was not cool …the even more embarrassing truth is ..I didn't even remember he had just died or I would have kept my mouth shut….I do make mistakes …no offense intended."
Previously, Crosby told another tweeter that he personally wasn't moved by Eddie's playing, "Hendrix changed the world of guitar. Nobody else really …look I get it ..many of you loved Van Halen ….and the one time I met he was nice ….and he was talented …meh to me means I don’t care that much ….and I don’t …doesn’t mean he wasn’t good, he was but not for me." Crosby is certainly entitled to his opinion, but a little tact would be useful sometimes.
