The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash legend is known for his outspoken views on Twitter and when asked recently about his thoughts of the former White Stripes frontman, he replied: “Has not shown up with a really fine song yet”.
Crosby also said that he hasn’t “decided yet” about his opinion on Father John Misty.
One of the artists Crosby regularly criticises online is Kanye West. Previously, Crosby has labelled West a “poser” and claimed that West “can’t write, sing or play”. He later called Kanye an “egomaniac” who is “dumb as a post”, “helps no one” and “creates nothing”.
He went on to say: “I get in trouble there, mind you. I get in trouble there saying Kanye West has absolutely no talent and is a complete poseur. I get in trouble there saying Donald Trump is a walking intelligence-free zone. But I have fun.”
Asked about his disdain for West, Crosby replied: “It has a lot to do with him at Glastonbury [which he headlined in 2015], saying he was the greatest living rockstar and taking that Queen song [‘Bohemian Rhapsody’] and singing it so shitty. When Freddie Mercury sang the shit out of it. I frankly think he’s just a poseur. I don’t think he can write, sing, or play. Any of the three.”
