At the height of the counter-culture, anti-war movement of the 1960s and '70s, the musical backdrop of millions of young Americans lives was made by the iconic group Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, with songs like "Ohio," "Teach Your Children," "Wooden Ships," and "Woodstock."

In the years since, a lot of music and headlines have been made by the group's flamboyant composer, singer and guitarist, David Crosby — for jail time, for fathering Melissa Etheridge's children, and discovering his own, and for hitting the road well into his 60s to raise the anti-war banner, again.

This hour On Point: a conversation with musical icon David Crosby on life, music and America, now and then.

Guests:

David Crosby, legendary singer and songwriter from The Byrds, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. He is author of the new memoir "Since Then: How I Survived Everything and Lived to Tell About it."
