"They should send him all of Ray Charles' catalog so he can learn how to sing."

David Crosby hasn't been particularly quiet about his distaste for Kanye West in the past and appearing on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday night he didn't hold back. 

Speaking with host Andy Cohen about his new album, the conversation turned to West and the Crosby, Stills & Nash icon echoed an argument about West he's made before. 

"He can neither sing, nor write, nor play," Crosby said. "The thing that bugs me about him is the 'I'm the greatest living rock star.' Somebody needs to drive him over to Stevie Wonder’s house right now so he understands what a real one is. Secondly, they should send him all of Ray Charles' catalog so he can learn how to sing." 

Cohen's response to the rant: "Very good!"
