Today, you’re being treated to one of my more favorite video clips, truly a surreal moment in rock music, Tom Jones covering David Crosby’s “Long Time Gone”, backed by… CSN&Y.
What slays me when I watch this is the look on Crosby’s face as he watches Jones sing the song as only Jones can. Now there’s a man functioning on a massive quantity of ingested drugs. How massive? Only he and his supplier could say for sure. (And, yeah, Neil Young looks like he might have shared Crosby’s stash.)
