  • Graham Nash has described the future of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young as "pretty bleak" in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2015 and out now. After a recent public disagreement between Neil Young and David Crosby, culminating in Young stating that there will never be another CSNY reunion, Nash has revealed that he would nonetheless be "incredibly sad" if the four never performed or recorded together again. "Will there be any more CSNY? Right now, it looks pretty bleak," he says. "Neil is a little upset with me because of my book, Wild Tales. And he's obviously upset with David [Crosby]. "But we've been here before, hearing people saying CSNY will never go forward, but we always manage to do something. If a few oddly chosen words in the press from David and a paragraph of mine in my book stopped CSNY making music again, that would be incredibly sad."

  • Nash weighs into the feud between Neil Young and David Crosby... Graham Nash has refused to completely rule out the possibility of more CSNY activity in the future. Currently, Neil Young and David Crosby are in the middle of a feud because of comments Crosby made about Young's partner Daryl Hannah. Subsequently, Young told fans he will never again tour as part of CSNY. Now, Rolling Stone reports Nash has said that he would hate to see the group quit playing music together because of "something so trivial". Appearing on SiriusXM's Ron And Fez show, Nash said, "You know, whatever Neil wants to say is fine with me. It would be sad to me if the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young didn't go forward because of an inappropriate statement by David to Neil about his relationship with Daryl Hannah. I mean if we're not more grown up and if we're not more realistic about what the true value of our friendship is, it would be very sad to me." "You can never say never in this business," he said.

The band says to PopMatters regarding the tune, "'One of Us is Dead' is our answer to late '70s Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Brothers, or Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, with thick layered five part harmonies, a jammy nylon riff, and some major key psychedelic energy. The track carries the spiritual, mellow freedom of the rest of this album, but is more upbeat, in your face, and as close to an anthem as we would like. The lyrical content is inspired from working in

Meanwhile, Young's ongoing spat with David Crosby continues. Young confirmed to radio DJ Howard Stern that a CSNY reunion will "never happen." "Playing with Stills and Nash was really great," he said, "I wish [Crosby] the best with his life. There's love there, there's just nothing else there. [A reunion] will never happen. Never happen, no, not in a million years....You have to think about things before you do them.

  • Neil Young on David Crosby: "If you make a mistake you have to fix it right away"
  • Neil Young appeared as a guest on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show on October 14. During the 75 minute interview - which you can hear below - Young reiterated his recent proclamation that CSNY would never play live again, as well as his Pono digital music service, views on the Woodstock Festival and his upcoming new album, Storeytone. He also addressed his ongoing environmental concerns. When asked about his recent announcement that Crosby Stills Nash & Young would never tour again, Rolling Stone reports that Young confirmed a reunion will "never happen." "Playing with Stills and Nash was ... together for a long time. We did a lot of great work. Why should we get back together and celebrate how great we were? What difference does it make? It's not for the audience, it's not for money either." Discussing the Woodstock movie, Young complained that the cameras on stage interfered with CSNY's performance. "They didn't have to be right there on the stage," he said. "They're cameras, hello! Use zoom, dickhead. We were playing music and there's some jerk standing there in black clothes. We're playing music, get out of there." Speaking about Storeytone, which is due for release in November, Young said,

Waful reports that while Neil was in hisstandard joking banter mode, he seemed firm in his statement about CSNY's future. Young stuck to a similar setlist in Philadelphia as he did for Night One and Night Two in Boston earlier this week, including the performance of threenew songs debuted on Sunday night at the Wang.

The music rumbles and gleams, like a capable outdoorsman who also happens to be extremely well-groomed. Furthermore, that string of influences stretching from CSNY to Band Of Horses suggests Greylag as the next step in a continuum of wistful, guitar-powered folk-rockers. They seem like an antidote handed down from God to shut up certain people who like to complain that they just don't make rock bands like they used to. Although they've recorded

There's a pleasingly loose feel to the performances that serves to define those moments rather than slavishly attempting to recreate their studio recordings...

He had directed 1974's Journey Through the Past and 1979's Rust Never Sleeps by then and went on to do 2003's Greendale and 2008's CSNY/Déjà Vu under his pseudonym, Bernard Shakey, which he also is credited under on Human Highway, as well as his real name. "There was a big picture of complacency, just how people saw everything but they just dealt with it as being reality and no one really questioned what was going on," Young said.

  • CSNY's "Doom Tour" exhumed, and reconstructed into an ideal show from their stadium excursion... To call this live compilation from CSNY's 1974 tour "long-awaited" is, on one level, an act of revisionism. Certainly, it has been a long time coming, but it's also true that in the intervening 40 years, the competing egos of CSNY have done their best to suggest that if the tour itself wasn't best forgotten, there was nothing to be gained by revisiting it...

  • Woodstock be damned. Peace, love, and understanding sprouted in January 1967 during San Francisco's Human Be-In, peaked three summers later at Max Yasgur's 600 acres in upstate New York, and died that December (1969) at the hands of the Hells Angels securing Altamont Speedway for the Rolling Stones. Nixon, Vietnam, and Watergate won out. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performed at both Woodstock and Altamont, a beacon of folk idealism at the former, and harbinger of ego and excess by the latter...

At loose ends during 1968, and either fired from their respective bands (David Crosby from The Byrds, Stephen Stills from Buffalo Springfield), or, in case of Graham Nash, leaving The Hollies and journeying to America, somehow the trio met up in California and the rest, as they say, is history...

When Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young played the last show of their hugely successful 1974 tour, the tapes of the nine concerts that they'd professionally recorded for a potential live album were shelved. The feelings were too raw, the bad memories too fresh for anyone to touch them, no matter what treasures they held. It would be too much like living through a bad break-up, scene by scene, over and over again...

The first-ever set of recordings from those shows is fittingly over-the-top - three discs and one DVD with footage of eight songs.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Déjà Vu (from Blender)
  • On release, the first CSNY album sold 2 million copies, but it has aged badly. Young provides the sparse, stunning "Helpless" and a quirky suite called "County Girl" and collaborates with Stills on cute closer "Everybody I Love You." The rest is long on self-important hippie bluster like "Woodstock," about the festival Young later compared to "people standing around a pile of shit, looking at it."

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - 4 Way Street (from Blender)
  • For evidence of why Young was so uncommitted to CSNY even at the height of their success, consider this live set, recorded in 1970. There's a spine-tingling solo Young medley and his interesting acoustic take on "Cowgirl in the Sand," but the electric jams are turgid, and the less said about Stills's appalling and pompous "America's Children," the better.

  • Of the five (or seven, I forget) memorable tunes here, N's "Our House" is a charming but cloying evocation of puppy domesticity, while both N's sanctimonious "Teach Your Children" and C's tragicomic "Almost Cut My Hair" document how the hippie movement has corrupted our young people.

  • Along with many other people, I had hoped that the addition of Neil Young to Crosby, Stills, and Nash would give their music the guts and substance which the first album lacked. Live performances of the group suggested that this had happened. Young's voice, guitar, compositions and stage presence added elements of darkness and mystery to songs which had previously dripped a kind of saccharine sweetness. Unfortunately, little of this influence carried over into the recording sessions for Deja Vu...
