How did David Crosby become famous?

Music has been a part of David’s life for a very long time. After he dropped out of Santa Barbara City College, David performed for a bit with singer Terry Callier, but the twosome failed to secure a recording contract. However, per Wikipedia, Terry introduced David to Jim McGuinn (who later changed his name to Roger McGuinn) and they had a spark. Alongside Gene Clark, and drummer Michael Clarke, the earliest formation of the band came to be with the name The Jet Set.

In 1964, Chris Hillman joined as bassist for the group. They rebranded as The Byrds and thanks to a connection that The Byrds’ manager, Jim Dickson, had with Bob Dylan’s music publisher, the newly-renamed band secured the rights to record a version of Bob’s song “Mr. Tambourine Man,” which became a huge hit.

However, David left the group by 1967 and went on to form Crosby, Stills, & Nash, the award-winning ensemble that solidified his status as one of the greats of 20th century music.
