Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young is the band equivalent of an on-again-off-again relationship. Last we heard from Graham Nash, it was off again, and it didn’t sound like it would ever go back to being on. Nash told Billboard, “Right now, I don’t want anything to do with [David] Crosby at all. It’s just that simple. In my world there will never, ever be a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young record and there will never be another Crosby, Stills & Nash record or show.”
But when Nash found out that Neil Young told Rolling Stone he would consider future CSNY activity, the old flame, if just for a moment, sparked on again for Nash.
“Well, he’s right, you never know,” Nash told RS after learning what Young had said. “There have been times when I’ve been so pissed at us all for wasting time and not getting on with the job that I wouldn’t talk to any of them. But if Crosby came and played me four songs that knocked me on my ass, what the f*** am I supposed to do as a musician, no matter how pissed we are at each other?”
Perhaps there’s still a future for the band.
