David Crosby's final message on his social media before dying leaves the impression that he saw it coming. The 81-year-old musician famous for his part in the music group The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash battled a serious illness years before finally resting in peace.

Heaven Is Overrated

A day before his wife, Jan Dance, confirmed his death to Variety, Crosby posted a cryptic caption alluding that he knew what was coming. The singer wrote about heaven, saying he heard it's overrated and cloudy. Well, now he knows the truth.

Clapping Back At Haters

Crosby replied to a tweet suggesting that people with tattoos won't make heaven. Since he had several tattoos, the actor rebuffed the google search response saying the place was overrated anyway.
