Variety noted that in March 2021, the Iconic Artist Group bought Crosby’s catalog of music. Still, the comment brought a round of mockery on Twitter.
I don’t own it now and the people who do are in business to make money https://t.co/TwyI2z2y1w— David Crosby (@thedavidcrosby) July 2, 2022

Young gave Spotify an ultimatum. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” Young wrote to Warner Records, the Post reported. The three bandmates whose music has returned then followed suit. [firefly_poll] “We support Neil and we agree with him that there is dangerous disinformation being aired on Spotify’s Joe Rogan podcast.” “While we always value alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences,” the band’s statement read. “Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don’t want our music — or the music we made together — to be on the same platform.” Rogan responded to the furor caused by Young and others who joined in the protest by offering to share more balanced views. “I’m not trying to promote misinformation. I’m not trying to be controversial,” he said then. “I’ve never tried to do anything with this podcast other than just talk to people and have interesting conversations.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
David Crosby AFAIK sold his catalog of music to a corporation some time ago. Not sure about Stills and Nash. News flash. Corporations exist to make money.— George Tafelski (@georgetafelski) July 5, 2022
