David Crosby

Crosby, whose musicianship and vocal harmonies helped propel two bands to superstardom, died Jan. 18 at age 81. After growing up in California, Crosby co-founded the folk-rock group the Byrds in the early 1960s. In 1965, the band’s rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” featuring Crosby’s tenor harmonies became arguably folk rock’s first No. 1 hit. Rancor with bandmates led Crosby to depart and join with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash to form the eponymous Crosby, Stills, and Nash (Neil Young later joined). While Crosby’s silky ­harmonies helped lead the band to commercial success, his cantankerous personality contributed to its breakup. Crosby later recorded solo efforts.

Sal Bando

Bando, a baseball lifer who parlayed a 16-year major league baseball career into a front office position with the Milwaukee Brewers, died Jan. 20 after a five-year struggle with cancer. He was 78. Bando broke into the big leagues in 1966 with the Kansas City Athletics, playing 11 seasons with the club, mostly after its move to Oakland, Calif. As team captain, the third baseman anchored a squad that won three straight World Series from 1972 to 1974. Bando made the All-Star team four times while racking up 242 career home runs. After a stint with the Milwaukee Brewers, Bando joined the team’s management, eventually becoming the Brewers general manager until he resigned in 1999.
