SHARE SINGER WITH CROSBY, STILLS AND NASH WILL SPEAK OCT. 19 AT USU ON THE HAZARDS OF DRUG ABUSE

Singer David Crosby of Crosby, Stills and Nash will speak Oct. 19 at Utah State University as part of the Associated Students' Convocation Lecture Series.

Crosby recently embarked on a nationwide lecture tour to discuss the evils of drug addiction. Crosby recently published his autobiography, "Long Time Gone," in which he details his harrowing descent into - and eventual recovery from - drug addiction.He speaks at 12:30 p.m. in the Chase Fine Arts Center Kent Concert Hall. The public is invited to the free lecture.

In the last few months, Crosby recorded a new album ("American Dream) with long-time musical mates Graham Nash, Stephen Sills and Neil Young. He also recorded his first solo album ("Oh Yes I Can") since 1971.

"I've been trying to finish a solo album for years," Crosby says. "I was working on one during the latter stages of my addiction, but I could not finish it; I just couldn't get myself together to do it."
