  • OT: Brutally Honest look at Crosby Stills & Nash

    Albeit circa 1987 but still very interesting to watch.

      As always, I'm struck by the quiet courage and strength of Nash...he has always been the rock the other two could (and often did) use to anchor themselves to.

                Crosby leaning on one side of Nash because he's too strung out to stand on his own and Stills on the other side trying to swing around Nash to clobber Crosby for being **************** headed, what's not to expect just before a show? Crosby was a musical genius and a personal train wreck and it didn't help matters at all that Stills needed him to back up his ego.

                  It was too much to ask that we would even get one more album such as this:



                  But it is heart-breaking to think we might have, had it not been for their demons. Sounds like this is what GN is mourning; what might have been...

                    Agreed. He has mentioned a few times that Stills had a tendency to hog the spotlight. How many times does that happen before your band falls apart feeling individually insignificant? Tonight I'm picking my gear up from one I quit because of that. I see ego, I show heels.

                      The loss of creativity is tragic. But despite the toll taken by egos and demons, these guys are IMHO on an extremely short list of bands that have cranked out an amazing number of great songs. In that regard, I put them up there with the likes of the Beatles and the Stones. I was barely aware of them, somehow, until I met my wife. They've always been her favorite band.



                      It also seems like bands are even more doomed than marriages, statistically. Egos and substance abuse and faulty airplanes have really ****************ing robbed us all of a lot of great art.

I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.<br><br><br><br><br><br>I.K.F.C.<br><br>E.S .C.<br><br>Potato Society<br><br>SAWG</div>

                        I was in two groups with great promise that were ruined by drugs and booze (no, not me). It was very frustrating, and a real waste of talent, time, and emotion.

                            CSN was probably the single-most influential band for me between 1969 and on. Individual artists were plentiful but CSN was my band. I did not think Young was needed in the band, and visa versa. I thought, and still think, Suite Judy Blues eyes a brilliant piece of writing with its execution, vocal harmonies, dynamics, the full "suite" to be immune to the stagnation and overplay that killed the Free Birds and Stairways of our past. A true timeless piece of writing, IMO. Then again, I know of one guy who actually said: "I don't get Crosby, Stills and Nash. What was that all about?" He also said that of Cat Stevens and a few others, as I recall. Dropped him as a client Monday, incidentally.

                              Yo Bad-

                              It's an old joke that precedes your Join Date here. Refers to whether or not CSN, but especially Neil Young remains relevant today.

                              Just a joke.
