David Crosby has never shied away from telling the rest of the music industry what he thinks. His appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night was no exception. The music icon made his feelings about Kayne West abundantly clear.

“He can neither sing, nor write, nor play,” Crosby told Cohen. When Cohen asked him to explain he said, “The thing that bugs be about him is the ‘I’m the greatest living rockstar.'” Crosby even gave some recommendations for West’s musical education saying, “Somebody needs to drive him over to Stevie Wonder’s house right now so he understand what a real one [rock star] is. Secondly, they should send him all of Ray Charles catalogue so he learn how to sing.”

Cohen also had Crosby play a game called “Spill the Music Indus-Tea” where Crosby had to divulge his thoughts on famous musicians. When Cohen asked Crosby if there was anything at all he liked about Kanye West, Crosby could only shake his head and chuckle.

Check out the videos below to see Crosby share his thoughts on the Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud, Jim Morrison, and Lady Gaga, and of course West.
