  • Tribute to Juan Formell and Los Van Van
  • I think I was in the eleventh grade at the time. What struck me most about the show and what I suddenly realized was that the Cuban musicians sounded just as good as the Americans and some were just as great virtuosos. I knew everything about the Americans that came, was a fan of Stephen Stills as a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and I knew them all. I also knew all the songs of Billy Joel who was at the top of the charts in the US at the time and at the height of his fame. I also knew from listening so often to "La DUGLIU". But as far as Cuban musicians were concerned I knew absolutely nothing and although I

  • Happy Birthday Neil Young | Harry Hood & Helpless With Phish
  • Today, rock legend Neil Young celebrates his 69th birthday. Young is still going strong over 50 years into a career in which he's seen and done nearly all as an uber-successful solo artist and member of Rock Hall acts Buffalo Springfield & Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young as well as leading his own Crazy Horse ensemble. Unbelievably, Neil is still going strong as he's released two very different albums in 2014.A few months back we posted a Throwback Thursday column about Phish's 1998 performances at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California for that year's Bridge School Benefit Concerts.

The shimmering dark textures of "Silver Raven," where Clark's falsetto vocal is kissed by synth and muted basslines and extended by a chorus that could have come off CSNY's Déjà Vu, is one of the most heartbreakingly blissed-out country-folk songs in recorded music history. "From a Silver Phial," as haunting and beautiful as it is, is one of the strangest songs Clark ever wrote, given its anti-drug references (especially considering this is one of the more coked-out

  • 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.

  • Stopped making sense: CSNY 1974
  • I've been spending a lot of time with CSNY 1974, a new 3CD/1DVD box set culled from the famed folk-rock group's arena tours of that year. I've been a fairly casual Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fan for a long time, but a fan of a certain type--namely a Neil Young obsessive with a lesser regard for the rest of the group. Yesterday's heavy listening to this (fucking awesome, I should say up front) box shifted my thinking significantly. When I first spun CSNY 1974 a few months back, I remember taking note of the vast chasm separating a Neil contribution like, say, "On the Beach"--one of his deepest and most ... valuable, than the latter. But what I was overlooking was the weird alchemy of the so-called supergroup. The way that the coexistence of disparate talents can shed new light on each one, even if, for a moment, one seems like the obvious sun, with the others acting as mere minor satellites. I'm not sure CSNY quite rivals Fleetwood Mac in this department, i.e., in the sheer depth of their genius arsenal. Seeing Nicks, Buckingham and Christine McVie on the same stage a few weeks ago reminded me how unlikely it was that those three pop magicians, each with such a different appeal, ended up in the same band, but CSNY have their own special kind of wonder. Listening to this new box set, you really feel the cycle of personalities in this band. I've spent countless hours with Young's solo work, and a lot of time with Graham Nash's excellent 1971 solo debut, Songs for Beginners, but before I got ahold of CSNY 1974, Stephen Stills and David Crosby were both a bit of a mystery to me. This set has made me an ardent fan. There's something so soulful and plainspoken about a song like "Almost Cut My Hair," Crosby's meditation on "letting [his] freak flag fly" after nearly stowing it for good, or Stills's ragged roots-rock

"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.

Umphrey's LD JeffersonWaful was in attendance last night and notes that the banter started when Neilpicked up a guitar and said, "this was given to me by my good friend Stephen Stills."Young responded to something yelled out by an audience member with "CSNY will nevertour again, ever...but I love those guys." 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. Yesterday, RollingStone posted an interview with Neil that included details on what Young's secondalbum of 2014, Storytone, is all about. Storytone will be released intwo editions on November 4 - a solo ... for Storytone, which is currently available for pre-order: Check out the track list for both versions of the new LP: Orchestral Album: 1.

  • Band To Watch: Greylag
  • years of hard work, sifting through musical influences both modern and classic en route to a formidable cocktail of rustic yet metropolitan rock 'n' roll. 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

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: CSNY 74 (Rhino) | Under the Radar - Music Magazine
  • 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...

  • child-mask mascot Booji Boy (played by Mark), who recites weird lines in his trademark falsetto. So what inspired Young to write and direct this strange fiction three decades ago? 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.

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - CSNY 1974 - Uncut.co.uk
  • 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...

  • Uncovering the mysteries of Steely Dan
  • "Hideous," said Rolling Stone. And when Steely Dan wrote the reissued liner notes for "The Royal Scam," the members echoed that, calling it "the most hideous album cover of the '70s, bar none" before adding "(excepting perhaps 'Can't Buy a Thrill')." The RS review of "Thrill" threw Steely Dan into the CSNY/Spirit/The Band category -- Steely Dan sounds like The Band?! -- and referred to Fagen's voice as "rancorous." It concluded that there were "three top-level cuts and scattered moments of inspiration, but there are those instances of Steely coming on like a limp (sex toy)." Two of those top-level cuts were

For the past 45 years, they've come to represent the epitome of the traveling troubadour, singer/songwriter ideal, the final remnants of sixties optimism, the last embers of hippie idealism, and a musical legacy that's left its impact on every band and every artist that's ever aspired to some kind of Americana achievement...

Might we suggest getting that cat Lil Bub and doing the Super Bowl Shuffle ? And the NFL would have to let him perform the new album's brilliant "Mission Statement," because nothing is more American -- more Super Bowl -- than a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young-style ode to "enhancing corporate synergy." At the end of the day, we must monetize our assets. It's a paradigm shift. "Weird Al" Super Bowl Gig Would Be a Cultural End Zone Dance

  • Graham Nash Talks Crosby, Stills & Nash's New Box Set
  • individual legacies. Over the past couple of years he's produced box sets covering the individual careers of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and himself, and he's put a lot of time in the studio listening to tape after tape from the band's epic 1974 tour for their recently released live box set, CSNY 1974. He spoke to us about the collective's sometime's tenacious relationship, what Neil Young brings to the mix, the continued relevance of his songs from the era (including tunes written about immigration, war and marijuana reform) and the elusive upcoming CSN album. And how he's trying to help the military change its image. Radio.com: Obviously you have lots of CSN and CSNY recordings to choose from. Why choose the 1974 tour for a box set? Graham Nash: I wanted people to know that CSNY is a good rock 'n' roll band. And the bootleg of our show at Wembley Stadium didn't show that. I want everybody to know that regardless of that particular show...I mean, that's who we were that night. We did 30 other shows [on that tour], but I knew that that's not what CSNY were. So I wanted people to know that we are a very decent rock 'n' roll band, from one acoustic guitar to the mayhem of all of us playing electric. There was such an incredible ... Stephen and I have a family, and painting shows, and photo shows, and book signings and stuff. It took me about four years [to do the box set], but I wanted to make sure it was right. I want people to know in a hundred years time, if they want to know at all, if they're at all curious about who CSNY were, this box set really represents what we were. We wanted the best performance of every single song, that's one of the reasons "Carry On" is not on the box set. It was one of our great songs from Stephen, one of our most popular songs, but I didn't find a performance that affected me like the thirty-nine other tracks did,

  • Review: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Music - The Austin Chronicle
  • 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...

Its folksy guitar figures and steady stomping rhythm sound like the wind whipping over rolling hills -- or is that just CSNY at their most Fleetwood Mac? Apparently they're named for a type of goose that lingers behind other migrant birds to "hold back and observe," and although "Another" pleasantly ambles along, it never loses sight of where it's going. Also, you might be surprised by this, but they don't have much

  • 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...

  • Ah, the healing hands of time! 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...

  • Forty summers ago, North America's greatest dysfunctional supergroup patched things up for a while, filled stadiums and left behind tales of backstage excess and shaky vocal harmonies. 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."

  • 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.

Sure, it's sloppy, poorly recorded and a bit self-indulgent, but hey, it was 1970 and it does not compare with the bloated carcasses released later in the decade (Zep's The Song Remains The Same comes to mind)...

  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Deja Vu (from Robert Christgau)
  • 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...

Despite pleasant melodies, the occasional interesting song and the signature harmonies, American Dream is, for the most part, a snoozefest.The enervation at the heart of this album suggests that these four veterans found themselves washed up on the shore of the late Eight.....

  • 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...

  • The highlight of this soundtrack to CSNY: Déjà Vu, Neil Young's film about the group's 2006 Freedom of Speech Tour, comes after Young sings "Let's Impeach the President" to an Atlanta audience that suddenly divides like Congress, equally booing and cheering. The performance proves that material from Young's Living With War, an indictment of the Bush regime, wasn't just aimed at the converted. Young's songs are the true rocket-launchers on Déjà Vu Live. His squiggly guitar blasts also act as ......
