Legendary musician David Crosby has sadly passed away at 81 years old. Born David Van Cortlandt Crosby, his incredible career started in the early 1960s, and spanned for decades. It included being a member of some of the most legendary bands out there.

Crosby was a founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. He even spent many years touring solo and with other acts. His passion for music and activism could be felt through his songs and incredible performances.

Crosby's talent was witnessed in Maine quite a few times over the years. Numerous trips with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash were made. He even rocked out in Old Orchard Beach with The Byrds back in 1966.

Here's a quick look at Crosby's touring history in the Pine Tree State, with a strong hat tip to setlist.fm for the info. I will officially call the list unofficial, just to be safe.
