  • of Graham's death, a massive concert in his honor started coming together in San Francisco's Golden State Park. Bobby McFerrin, Jackson Browne, Joe Satriani, Aaron Neville, Santana, Robin Williams, the Grateful Dead, John Fogerty, Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson joined the bill along with a reunited Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and Journey, who hadn't played with frontman Steve Perry since the band folded in 1986.The Grateful Dead were the last band to take the stage, and they were joined by Fogerty for four Creedence Clearwater Songs, marking one of the first times he'd done that material ... tune. "It's too big to read, so we're going to have to play and sing it to you." (You can see video of the performance above.)Despite regularly packing their set full of cover songs, the Grateful Dead never did a single Neil Young song in concert. Jerry Garcia did play pedal steel on Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's "Teach Your Children," but Young didn't actually play on that tune, making it more of a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Garcia song. This single performance of "Forever Young" is the only time that Young performed with the Dead, as well as the only time the group covered that song. Related Neil Young

April Rained Forever is typically downbeat in it's minor key symmetry. Don't You Ever Run Away could have been a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young out-take; spiraling guitars, chiming 12-string and delicate, serpentine vocals all mesh together into a song that has a familiarity of all of the good tunes.

  • Buffalo Springfield – Bluebird (Alt)
  • dueling, and oddly enough the long, jammy segment feels more 'organic' to me than the obvious (yet still cool) cut and paste of the original, but it really does make it a different song/record. The original mix fits more closely to the group's overall style, with the alternate take sounding like it belongs on a CSNY album. Either way, it's fascinating to look in on the group's 'process', especially considering how often their 45 and LP takes differ, and the fact that 'Bluebird' was covered a few times, by the James Gang and later by Kin Vassy. I hope you dig the track, and I'll see you next week. Peace

  • TRACK OF THE DAY: Pandamic – Heck
  • Pandemic hail from sunny Oz and create wonderful beachy pop-punk. Whilst it's stupid to ignore the influence bands like FIDLAR and Violent Soho have had on this scene, Pandemic still manage to chuck something different in with their track 'Heck'. It bobs along with some nice harmonies (weirdly reminiscent of CSNY) and gritty guitars. There's not too much to say apart from it's a great song; it's like being in a warm bath of melancholy smiles. The production really compliments it however; providing an airy retort to the more aggressive instrumentation.I really hope this track is picked up a bit more.

It was an indie-folk night at the Wonder Bar, a genre that has become immensely popular around here. Growing up for me it was CSNY, James Taylor and Jackson Brown and now we have some amazing acts right in our own backyard. And if you are following along, yes, my tastes were as eccentric back then as they are now. Probably more so. Opening up the night, coming in from Lawrenceville was Jesse Elliot and band.

  • Re/Again: Deja Vu
  • Crosby Stills Nash & Young: Deja Vu [purchase] David Crosby and Graham Nash: Deja Vu [purchase] Our instructions for this theme indicate that they are intentionally vague, so I thought I would make them vaguer. Yes, one can post songs with the word "again" in the title, but here are two more approaches. My hope is that this will encourage everyone to post to this theme. And then do it again. And then do it again. I will try to do the same. Déjà vu fits our theme, because it is the unsettling sense that you are again somewhere, or in some situation, that you have experienced before. Crosby Stills Nash & Young powerfully evoked the unsettling part of that feeling with their use of time signatures in the song Déjà Vu. The song begins in 12/8, and then switches to 4/4. The 4/4 seems oddly familiar because 12/8 is just 4/4 with triplets, but the transition is just as jarring as it should be. The lyrics are simple enough, serving simply to define the term for those who might not know it. The point of the song is the playing and singing, and that works perfectly. Another way to work with our theme is to explore what happens when an artist or band revisits, and drastically remakes, one of their ... for this theme. The album Déjà Vu, from which the first version of the song comes, is rightly regarded as a folk-rock classic. But David Crosby and Graham Nash brought more to the band than the folk rock label covers. The song shows great potential for a jam band treatment, and that is indeed how CSNY approached it live. But Crosby and Nash on their own took it further. The jam band element is certainly their, but so is a keen ear for the fusion jazz that was just emerging in 1976 when this live version was recorded. Their band included many California folk-rock stalwarts, who must either have relished this

"Right now, I don't want anything to do with Crosby at all. It's just that simple," he said. "In my world there will never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills & Nash record or show." While declining to say what exactly Crosby has done, he did continue by saying, "I don't like David Crosby right now. He's been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful. I've been there and saved his fucking ass for ... You can't do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you're going to come around. When it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I'm done. Fuck you. David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young." Nash did note that he was "sad" about the current state of his relationship with Crosby, adding that he was hoping they'd be able to reconvene for a covers album they started working on with producer Rick Rubin. Nash's latest, This Path Tonight, will be released on April 15 via Blue Castle. Graham Nash: "David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young"

  • Graham Nash: 'I Don't Want Anything to Do With' David Crosby
  • this weekend following comments Graham Nash made to a Dutch magazine where he declared that his days in CSN were likely over due to a rift with David Crosby. To make sure nothing was lost in translation, Nash also spoke to Billboard to confirm, saying, "In my world, there will never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills and Nash record or show. Graham Nash Weighs In on Neil Young, David Crosby Feud "Right now, I don't want anything to do with Crosby at all. It's just that simple," Nash said, although he wouldn't elaborate on why he's upset with his longtime ... let people play their hand in front of me, and I let him do it and then I make a decision." However, while talking to Dutch magazine Lust for Life, Nash held nothing back while slamming Crosby. In the interview, Nash blamed Crosby for first sparking a personal feud with Neil Young, which likely spelled the end of CSNY, and then behaving in a manner that made Nash question CSN's future. "I don't like David Crosby right now. He's been awful for me the last two years, just fucking awful," Nash said. "I've been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit. You can't do that to me. You can ... Crosby said. "I have screwed up massively. Daryl Hannah never wound up in a Texas prison. I'm screwed up way worse than that girl. Where do I get off criticizing her? She's making Neil happy. I love Neil and I want him happy." After Crosby's initial comments, Young all but dismissed any chance of a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young reunion. "We were together for a long time. We did some good work. Why should we get together and celebrate how great we were? What difference does it make?," Young said. "It's not for the audience. It's not for money, either. When you play music, you have to come from a certain place to

"When it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I'm done. Fuck you!" Nash added. "David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young ... How can I not be sad? Look at the music we probably lost. How can I not be sad about that? The truth is, after being totally immersed in me and David and Stephen and Neil's music, I'm done. I've had 10 years of it. Leave me the fuck alone. I need to concentrate on me now." In a follow-up interview with Billboard, Nash doubled down in his comments, saying, "Right now, I don't want anything to do with Crosby at all. It's just that simple. In my world there will never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills & Nash record or show." In a 2014 interview with Howard Stern, Neil Young expressed similar sentiments toward Crosby. "Playing with [Stephen] Stills and Nash was really great," Young told Stern, adding, "I wish [Crosby] the best with his life. There's love there, there's just nothing else there."

  • 'I've saved his ass for 45 years, and he treated me like shit,' says Nash, adding 'there will never be another record or show' Is this the end for Crosby, Stills and Nash?

Young briefly split his time between the two radically different bands in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but by 1975 he had recommitted to Crazy Horse; he turned away from CSNY for the next quarter-century.

Young & Promise Of The Real kicked off the full-band portion with the return of "Hold Back The Tears," a song that hadn't been performed live since 2009. They then dusted off the Harvest

  • CSNY's Dallas Taylor Dead at 66
  • (Classic Rock) Former Crosby, Stills, Nash And Young drummer Dallas Taylor has died at the age of 66. Taylor drummed on Crosby Stills And Nash's debut album after becoming friends with Stephen Stills and stayed with the band when they added Neil Young and became CSNY. He went on to play on Still's 1970 solo album and joined him in the group Manassas. He also played with Van Morrison during the course of an impressive career behind the kit. His wife Patti Mcgovern-Taylor broke the news via Facebook. She wrote: "This morning at 2:30 am I lost the love of my life Dallas W Taylor. He came into my life almost 18 years ago and saved me as much as I may have saved him. "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. I cannot even find the words to put down to say how grateful I am for the many friends and family who have been there for both of us these many days he has spent in the hospital, especially last night."

  • Dallas Taylor, CSNY drummer, dies at 66
  • Dallas Taylor died on Sunday [January 19] of unknown causes in a Los Angeles hospital. He was 66. 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." Born in Denver, Taylor moved to California in 1967, where his band Clear Light signed to Elektra Records. In the late 1960s, he met Stephen Stills. In 1969, Taylor was invited to drum with Crosby, Stills & Nash on their debut album. 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. Taylor's death comes soon after the passing of Tim Drummond, who played bass with CSNY, Neil Young and Bob Dylan.

  • Its multi-foldout package of three CD's, DVD (or Blu-Ray) and a one-hundred eighty-eight page booklet as smartly designed as it is handsome, CSNY 1974 represents a painstaking labor of love on the part of Graham Nash, who supervised the project over a protracted period of time, in collaboration with co-producer Joel Bernstein and engineer Stanley Tajima Johnston as well as Stephen Stills, David Crosby and Neil Young...

  • Though the members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young had been performing solo or in various groupings since parting in 1970, there was a fervent demand for a regrouping of the "American Beatles" when they announced the 1974 tour represented in this set. There's a pleasingly loose feel to the performances that serves to define those moments rather than slavishly attempting to recreate their studio recordings...

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...

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...

  • 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. S half scores twice and in-law M provides the climax. Which leaves Y's "Helpless" as the group's one unequivocal success this time out...

And when S explains how when he was young old people were wrong and now that he's old young people are wrong and then disses "overfed talking heads" without ever once acknowledging overfed singing exhead C to his immediate left, I imagine some computer nerd with more brains than sense joining the arms race just to get even...

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...
