'David Crosby: Remember My Name' to Screen at the Summer KCET Cinema Series on July 9

Q&A immediately following with director A.J. Eaton.

A thoughtful and nostalgic look at award-winning singer-songwriter David Crosby, and his contribution to three iconic bands of the 1960s and 1970s: The Byrds; Crosby, Stills & Nash; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Directed by A.J. Eaton, the documentary film takes its name from Crosby’s first solo album, If I Could Only Remember My Name, and debuted at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews.

“Listen, this is going to be a fun project for you guys,” recalled Cameron Crowe, who would become a producer on the film. “In my humble opinion — possibly worthless opinion, but I do know about this guy as a subject — you don’t need a bunch of talking heads. Put the camera on this guy and let him tell his own story, because there are very few storytellers as charismatic and entertaining as Crosby. So just have him tell the story like he’s telling you his life’s tale over dinner, just to you. Not to a bunch of people, but just to one person.”
