Episode 2: Ghost Prints on the Tape

In Episode 2 David opens up about the roots of his musical and political activism, and the urgent need for more of the same today. We also explore the power of harmony, and Crosby’s inspiration for some of the songs that defined his generation.

David and Steve candidly discuss the virtues and vices of a superstar ego, struggles with addiction and public downfall, and the strength of David’s lifelong partnership with his wife Jan.
