CROSBY CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION CAUSES CONCERT CANCELLATIONS

Multiple Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee David Crosby has been forced to postpone seven upcoming California concerts after undergoing heart surgery last Friday. The singer had a 90 percent blockage in his left anterior coronary artery and immediately underwent a coronary catheterization in which two stents were inserted. Two shows in San Francisco have been pushed back to April 20 and 21, and the five-night stand planed at the Troubadour in Los Angeles has not yet been rebooked.
