David Crosby calls Kanye West “an idiot and a poser”

Crosby said West had 'no talent' during Twitter Q+A

David Crosby has said that Kanye West has no talent and called the rapper “an idiot and a poser” during a Q+A on Twitter earlier this week.

The founding member of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young was asked his opinion of West’s music, as well as what he thought West’s impact as an artist was, by a fan. The singer-songwriter replied: “He’s an idiot and a poser… has no talent at all.”

When asked about Billy Joel however, Crosby said he thought Joel was a “very talent cat, writing, singing, playing.” And while he described Brian Wilson as “innocent, brilliant, and inspiring,” he said he would never play with Wilson’s former Beach Boys bandmate Mike Love because he’s “not a good person”.

Last year, David Crosby took to Twitter to respond to former bandmate Neil Young’s assertion that he will never again tour as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. “I hear Neil said ‘there will never be any more CSNY shows'”, Crosby said. “That’s like saying there are mountains in Tibet, we know Neil ….we already knew.”

He later replied to a fan’s question as to why there will not be any more CSNY shows with, “He is very angry with me…”
