The life and musical career of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Crosby will be the topic of a new documentary produced by seasoned music journalist and Oscar-winning filmmaker Cameron Crowe, according to a report from VarietyA.J. Eaton (pictured above with Crowe and Crosby) will direct the new film, with Crowe’s Vinyl Films producing and BMG executive producing and providing the bankroll. As Billboard notes, “In addition to producing the documentary, Crowe has conducted multiple interviews with Crosby that will cast a new light on the artist, whose career includes stints in The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as a vibrant solo career.”

Explains Crowe in a statement,

David Crosby has been near the forefront of music and social change for the last four decades. Now 76, he’s forging a new path by seeking out younger musicians and trying to make a mark in a world now so different from the generation he came to define in the 60’s. … It’s a raw and moving portrait, rough edges and all. We’re also so proud of the work being done by our wonderful director A.J. Eaton who’s been filming Croz for the last several years.

Crowe’s career has always hewed closely to the world of rock and roll. Starting from a young age, he was a contributing editor for Rolling Stone Magazine. Following his move to the film world, he eventually won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his semi-autobiographical rock and roll comedy/drama, Almost Famous, in 2000.

For BMG, who released Crosby’s 2017 LP, Sky Trails, this is the music-oriented entertainment company’s latest push into more film-based content. According to Variety, their first foray into film was a documentary about Joan JettBad Reputation, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. They also have a number of other music-facing film projects in the works.
