    Yes like Q said ... just a joke. You were referencing a Neil Young song (Needle and the Damage Done), and there is an on going debate/joke as to whether or not Neil is still relevant today. If I make a joke, I normally add a smiley after it.

        Albeit circa 1987 but still very interesting to watch.

          This is just TOO SWEET not to share here. Graham Nash interviews Judy Collins and they talk about her being the subject of Suite Judy Blue Eyes then they bring Stills on to play a song with her!

            When I hear someone say "Brutally Honest" I wonder if it`s the Honesty, or the brutality that turns them on..

              I don't think I would describe it that way especially at this point in time ...

                The video is from 1987 - I wonder how they get along together today.

                  Not at all. Separate tour busses, etc. It shows, too. What normally might have allowed for some rehearsal time to tighten up the shows while traveling together is lost now. I think the charm of their relationship is long gone and making money is all that's left. I'm sure there's still the desire to entertain their fans but not as a cohesive band. Now it's as separate egos on the same stage together tolerating each other for the length of the set list.

                    The Stephen Stills show I saw a year or so ago was astonishingly bad.

                      It's over.

                      In all fairness to the members I think they put on a pretty good facade for many years giving respect to their fans and the music now a legacy to their halcyon days. What I don't want to see (feel) is the current injurious splintering of that time becoming the sole surviving memory. Last call, curtain should be closed now.

                        True second hand story. An acquaintance was mixing a Veronique Samson show in the late 70's. During soundcheck an obviously inebriated Stills staggered toward the board, let loose an incomprehensible vowel movement, and left. Later, at the start of the show, Veronique comes out onstage, shakily acknowledges the applause, teeters to the piano bench, and sits. After a moment of quiet reflection, she slowly lowers her head to the keyboard, and plays the first chord with her forehead. Curtain descends, show over.

                          I saw CSN this past summer and Stills was by far the weakest vocally. Crosby and Nash were incredible (at 70!). They did Guinevere together (no Stills), and a single acoustic guitar (no backup) and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen live (gave me goose bumps). And previous to that concert I never cared for that song too much. Stills on the other hand has difficulty talking nevermind singing. He did sound okay in the harmonies, but he was probably lowered a bit in the mix.

                            I managed to see the Stills-Young Band before Neil took a powder (as usual); it was rather embarrasing at times. Stills was staggering as he went to the piano to do a rambling piano-based version of For What Its Worth. It was still a great show, though.

                              I saw CS&N about 4 years ago, an outdoor casino gig in Omaha. Very disappointing overall. Nash seemed like he was going through the motions, and Crosby seemed like a ghost. But Stills was on fire as a guitarist, and he was the only one who seemed to be having fun.
