Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young)

Advertising Information for vagmusic
Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young) is an American rock-folk band established in 1968 in Southern California. The band, which is also known as CSN, was often compared to the Beatles because of its high popularity, especially in the United States. In its origins, the group was formed by Graham Nash, David Crosby, and S. Stills. Graham Nash used to play with The Hollies, a British rock and roll band, and David Crosby was the founder of the Byrds. Later, Neil Young from the disbanded Buffalo Springfield joined the team.
The group started when Neil Young didn’t show up at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 with Buffalo Springfield. David Crosby was called as a substitute by Stills and they knew each other. After Crosby was dismissed from the Byrds and Buffalo Springfield disbanded, Stills and Crosby started meeting each other and talking. Then, when the Hollies were on a tour in California, Crosby met Graham Nash, and the group started working together as Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Since 1969, Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young) have released 15 albums in addition to several solos by each member of the band. Their best known songs include “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” from the album Crosby, Stills & Nash, “Woodstock” and “Our House” from Déjà Vu, and “Southern Cross” from Daylight Again.
