Crosby says that, despite his efforts to team up with surviving cofounders Chris Hillman and McGuinn, McGuinn has done nothing but rebuff him, telling Rolling Stone, "The Byrds is such a thing for me. I'm very proud of it. I really think that band broke some ground. But it's a very sore subject with me because I would like to do it some more and Roger doesn't like me."
Crosby, whose relationship with McGuinn was always strained, even when the band was together, added, "It's a real problem for me because Chris and I could still do really good music and we should. We could go out and do a tour and we don't have to be the best of buddies, we have to make great music, so it's very frustrating to me."The three surviving members of the Byrds -- Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and David Crosby -- have reunited several times for performances since 1991. The last time all three shared a stage was in 2000.
