David turns 71 today, born August 14, 1941 in Los Angeles, California.

Prison time didn't take him down, a bad liver didn't kill him, alcohol and drugs could not fell him, and so far diabetes hasn't taken him out.

And he's not done performing, either.

Crosby, Stills & Nash are currently on a U.S. tour which will make it's way to the Beacon Theatre in NYC this October.

He's still creating new music, as well.

A recent tweet reveals he's "making another cd right now with son James".

Happy birthday to a remarkable artist, whose voice is one of the most recognizable in the entire music world.

His bandmate in the Byrds, Chris Hillman, had this to say about his pipes:

"I think David's greatest strength in music is his beautiful voice......He is possessed of (one of) the most beautiful voices in music. He's something like Freddie Mercury, you know, in that he had a wonderful voice. Crosby has that, almost, operatic tenor about him. He is the guy that enhances everybody else in their performance."
