David Crosby: "I have maybe 10 more years, if I'm lucky."

David Crosby has spoken candidly about the current state of his health.

In an interview for The Wall Street Journal about his passion for sailing, Crosby explains, "Look, I have maybe 10 more years, if I'm lucky. I have hepatitis C, diabetes and heart disease. I'm managing them. I'm going to the gym three days a week, I'm feeling strong and I can still make audiences feel great."

Crosby goes on to say that his "dream" before he dies would be "One more tour with Crosby, Stills and Nash and my friend Neil [Young]. From there, I'd be fine. I'd be able to sail. I'd live. And I'd be happy."

Crosby will play the UK with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash in October, including three nights at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Meanwhile, the forthcoming live album of CSNY's 1974 tour has been delayed until next year.
