  • Graham Nash – Iconic Voice & Rock Legend Talks New ‘LP’ & Life In Music (INTERVIEW)
  • term "folk rock" via Crosby, Stills, Nash and (sometimes) Young. Aside from a brief one-off reunion in the early '80s and mentions in last year's autobiography, Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life, Nash has rarely revisited his Hollies legacy. On the other hand, his devotion to CSN and CSNY has never wavered. He recently oversaw the release of CSNY 1974, a sprawling CD/DVD combination box set that documents the band's legendary victory tour encompassing stadiums and arenas throughout the U.S. and Europe. Notably too, Nash has also produced career spanning retrospectives for his CSN band mates Crosby ... Yeah, I'm sure she knows. \So what's the plan going forward? You have the new album coming out. Have you seen the cover? Yes, it's lovely. You huddled up against the snow. That was taken in Woodstock actually. So how do you see that proverbial path going forward? Will CSN get back together at any time soon? Any possibility CSNY will reconvene? I spent three or four years putting the CSNY box set together (CSNY '74). And I just did 80 dates with David and Stephen. I just need a break from our music right now. I need to concentrate on me. I need to concentrate on this new album. And I just need to give it the best shot

  • Dallas Taylor: Drummer with C,S, N, & Y Dies...
  • http://www.latimes.com/local/obituar...119-story.html Quote:Dallas Taylor liked to say that he made his first million -- and his last million -- by the time he was 21. The rock drummer was a key sideman for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He played at Woodstock, appeared on seven top-selling albums and bought three Ferraris. He also stabbed himself in the stomach with a butcher knife and drank so heavily that he required a liver transplant in 1990, five years after becoming sober. Taylor, who went on to become an addiction counselor specializing in interventions and in reuniting alcoholics ... "Crosby, Stills and Nash." He also performed with them when they added Neil Young and belatedly showed up at Woodstock. "It took cajoling," Houskeeper said, "but they finally came." At a time when excessive drug use was common in the music industry, Taylor's habit stood out. He was fired from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young after their 1970 album, "Déjà Vu." Keith Moon, the notoriously self-destructive drummer for the Who, warned Taylor about the price he ultimately would have to pay. "Keith was always rock's No. 1 bad boy -- he invented the whole thing with trashing hotel rooms," Taylor told The Times in 1990.

  • did of "Helplessly Hoping" that I still listen to on occasion. The band reached out to let me know that they changed their name and have a new album out. This self titled debut holds everything I loved about the Postmen; unconventional melodies (think Fleet Foxes) with still-amazing vocal harmonies (think CSNY). They are not typical folk music in the sense of the acoustic singer songwriter style, but their sound is appropriately eclectic. The album teleports listeners to the golden era of the 1960s on several occasions. "Freedom Echoes - Exile" is a great snapshot if you just have time for one to check ... folk music, Native Harrow is an excellent choice. They are talented and feature the kind of soothing folk music that is perfect for a coffee shop or a day of studying. They have an authentic flavor to them. Much of the music seems to be influenced by classic Americana and folk acts like CSNY or Simon and Garfunkel. That said, their own smartly-crafted lyrics give the band their own identity. I definitely look forward to hearing more from them as the duo continues to evolve. Family and Friends - XOXO -This is just a fun album. I mean pure, unadulterated fun.

We [CSNY] played fuckin' awful. No one was into the music.' With this kind of mindset, maybe no one should have been surprised by his take on the rise of punk, Young being one of the relatively rare hippy generation artists who possessed a healthy perspective on the shock of the new, arguing that the good thing about the punk/new wave bands was that they weren't taking themselves seriously: 'People who make fun of the established rock scene, like Devo and the Ramones, are much

  • 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...

  • To many, CSNY is a artifact of the hippie era, known more for writing a song in an insurance ad ("Our House") then for the other accomplishments they achieved. 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 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. The two electric-set discs have a crackling, wired-on-something energy: Check how Stephen Stills and Neil Young trade unhinged solos on Young's "Revolution Blues...

  • 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."
  • 8-22-2010
  • 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...

  • 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...
