  • Show Preview: The Donkeys
  • The Donkeys are a San Diego indie band born in 2004. Coming from California's long tradition of great rock music, they are often compared to the likes of Pavement, The Grateful Dead, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. While some might view this constant comparison as a curse (not unlike being the youngest kid in your family), The Donkeys take these palpable influences, stretching across decades, and freshen them up for a 21st century audience. With an amalgamation of classic rock, country, and pop elements, The Donkeys offer melodic country rock songs that are as sunny and relaxed as (what we imagine

Also telling: Her songs "Big Yellow Taxi" and "Woodstock" became bigger hits in the hands of other artists -- Counting Crows and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, respectively. That might help explain why Blue, universally regarded as essential listening these days, peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200. In fact, Mitchell only placed two studio albums in the top 10 of the chart: Court and Spark and The Hissing of Summer Lawns, the latter of which miraculously

  • LIVE: Concert For Social Justice, Hollywood, CA
  • Justice held in Hollywood's Fonda Theater. The Grammy Museum and the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Human Rights teamed up for the fund raiser that brought in a packed house eager to hear some Rock & Roll with a message. Headliners included Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees Jackson Browne and CSNY's David Crosby and Graham Nash. The night began with Ghanaian Reggae singer Rocky Dawuni followed by LA's own La Santa Cecilia, Grammy winners for Best Latin Rock Album 2014. One of the night's most memorable moments was when the group covered The Beatles "Strawberry Fields" with a Latin bi-lingual twist. Dedicated ... "Bio-Dad", humorously quipping that at first her and her partner had seriously considered calling Jackson Browne to take on the task. Jokes aside, the platform allowed Etheridge the opportunity to speak personally about gay rights and the current marijuana legalization movement. Throughout the Vietnam Era, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young inspired a young generation to be politically minded and socially responsible. What better concert for them to be at as they played a few timely classics including "Chicago" and "Teach Your Children". The hosts for the night launched the Speak Up, Sing Out contest encouraging

It's a soft, contemplative folk song just this side of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The song expands into beyond the textured guitar, carried by caressing harmonized vocals that ease into what sounds like a drowsy saw. It's a gorgeous trip into the open prairie spaces.

  • Buffalo Springfield – Uno Mundo (aka Un-Mundo) 45 mix
  • thought I'd take the opportunity this week to return once again to examine something by my second favorite American band of the 60s, the mighty (and mightily underrated) Buffalo Springfield. Though most serious heads will at least be familiar with the shrapnel/diaspora that followed the dissolution of the group (CSNY, Y(oung), Poco, Loggins and Messina) and the big hit 'For What It's Worth', I find that few out there realize how deep, diverse and amazing the Buffalo Springfield catalog is. One of the problems, is that the band were only "together" for a very brief period (scare quotes intentional ... slanted in the direction of one of the main members or the other. Stephen Stills' 'Uno Mundo' (listen on this 45 as 'Un-Mundo') reflects his love of Latin sounds, developed during his youth spent in places like Costa Rica and the Panama Canal Zone. 'Uno Mundo'also forms a bridge between Buffalo Springfield and CSNY, sounding like a practice run at the sound of 'Everybody I Love You', with it's chugging rhythm, Hammond organ and Stills' blazing lead guitar. As is the case with a number of Buffalo Springfield 45s I've found, the mix on the 'Un-Mundo' 45 is different than the track on the album, especially

  • Here’s how much each artist earned from playing Woodstock
  • Woodstock is widely regarded as one of the most important events in music history. The festival, which took place in August 1969, drew about half a million people and was headlined by now-legendary acts like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, Joe Cocker, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Many of the sets have since gone on to not only become classic moments in those artists' respective careers, but also representative snapshots of America's counterculture during that time. It makes you wonder, then, how much a concert of that magnitude and influence would cost, right? As we saw last ... Tears - $15,000 3. Joan Baez - $10,000 4. Creedence Clearwater Revival - $10,000 5. The Band - $7,500 6. Janis Joplin - $7,500 7. Jefferson Airplane - $7,500 8. Sly and the Family Stone - $7,000 9. Canned Heat - $6,500 10. The Who - $6,250 11. Richie Havens - $6,000 12.

Taylor [pictured, right] was best known for his association with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, but his credits also include Van Morrison and Paul Butterfield's band. News of Taylor's death was reported by his partner, Patti McGovern Taylor, on Facebook. She wrote: "To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many."

He stayed with the band as they added Neil Young to the line-up and performed with them at Woodstock and on their Déjà Vu album. After CSNY, Taylor played in Stills' band, Manassas. He also performed with Van Morrison at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Festival. In 1990, he underwent a liver transplant. After leaving music, he worked as a drug and alcohol interventionist in Los Angeles. Among those paying tribute were former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum and Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcome, who said he owes his life to Taylor for helping him with drug dependency.

Drummond, who was born on April 20, 1940 in Canton, Illinois, also played live with CSNY on their 1974 tour. He reunited with Young for

  • Drummond visited the studio and became a member of the Stray Gators with the drummer Kenny Buttery and pedal steel guitarist Ben Keith. Drummond would continue to record and tour with Young on albums and concerts that did not involve his primary backing band Crazy Horse. He also toured with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young as well as record and tour with CSN and the duo of Crosby and Nash. Moving to California led to Drummond becoming one of the most in-demand session bassists, often paired with drummer Jim Keltner. Together they were the rhythm section on CSNY's 1974 tour, during which time Drummond met Dylan. He would later join his band during during Dylan's Christian gospel phase, co-writing "Saved." Drummond also appears on multiple albums by J.J. Cale, Ry Cooder and Graham Nash, and played on hit records by Don Henley, Bette Midler, Paula Abdul and Jewel.

  • Questlove: 'Fear of Being Blackballed' Prevents Artists From Releasing Protest Music
  • Neil Young was so shaken by photos of the four unarmed students killed by military gunfire at Kent State that he wrote "Ohio" for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young right away. By the end of the week, it was playing on the radio. That was 1970. Now, in 2014, outrage over police brutality has become much more widespread, inspiring protests and "die-ins" nationwide for Michael Brown and Eric Garner, two unarmed black men killed in confrontations with cops. Days ago in Brooklyn, two NYPD officers were murdered while sitting in their patrol car. But this year will end without a defining protest song. Nas, Russell

  • 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."

To call this live compilation from CSNY's 1974 tour "long-awaited" is, on one level, an act of revisionism.

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...

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.

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.
