Nash’s statement continued: “David was fearless in life and in music. He leaves a huge void when it comes to personality and talent in this world. He expressed his mind, his heart and his passion through his beautiful music and leaves an incredible legacy. Those are the things that matter most. My heart is truly with his wife, Jan, his son, Django, and everyone he touched in this world.

Stephen Stills’ statement to Fox News Digital read: “I read a quote in the paper this morning attributed to Gustav Mahler’s composition that stopped me for a moment:
“Death entered the room on calm cat paws. I should have known something was up. David and I bumped our heads many times over time, but it was mostly staring shots, but we still had numb skulls. I was happy to be at peace with him. He was undoubtedly a giant of a musician, and his harmonic sensibilities were nothing short of genius. The glue that held us together when our voice, like Icarus, flew to the sun. I am deeply saddened by his passing and will miss him immensely.”
