Graham Nash: "David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young"

In an interview with Billboard, Graham Nash had some harsh words for bandmate David Crosby when asked about the future of Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Right now, I dont want anything to do with Crosby at all. Its just that simple, he said. 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. While declining to say what exactly Crosby has done, he did continue by saying, I dont like David Crosby right now. Hes been awful for me the last two years, just **** ing awful. Ive been there and saved his **** ing ass for 45 years, and he treated me like **** . You cant do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think youre going to come around. When it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, Im done. **** you. David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Nash did note that he was sad about the current state of his relationship with Crosby, adding that he was hoping theyd be able to reconvene for a covers album they started working on with producer Rick Rubin. Nashs latest, This Path Tonight, will be released on April 15 via Blue Castle.

Poor Graham, crosby and stills are legendary a$$holes. here is a clip of Nash on colbert show recently telling an amusing story about one of his songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hPgzptEMT4

Crosby Steals the Cash and Runs.

Graham Nash has bailed Crosby out for decades. But it made him a lot of money. Stills sounds awful, his singing is completely off key. Yes, I know he's deaf. It does not make the the top notch act Nash wants it to be. THEY have to be either deaf themselves or on drugs to put up with Still's Yoko Ono worthy off key blitzes. Stills can still play a mean guitar. Crosby can still sing. Graham Nash is worthless at this point. Old men nearly washed up arguing. At $100 a ticket? NOT.

These guys are about as relevant as The Beach Boys these days.

I am hard pressed to think of any act that will make me reach into my wallet for a Franklin these days, much less a group of almost 70 year old "Legends". I last saw these three in'96 in San Diego and could not make it through the whole show, they were that off key...

These guys produced some great music in the past. The distant past, in most cases.

And they have recycled avidly - a CSN box-set and individual ones.

Sing and play together for fun, guys, but please don't think that you have a future where you are relevant musically.

And the same applies to other acts, sadly. Know when to quit.

I agree, I wouldn't bother with CSN, in fact I walked out of their show in the mid-90's. It was boring, and watching uptight yuppies dancing to Woodstock in the 300$ seats was a sick joke!

That said, David Crosby is alive and well and creating fantastic new sounds, his last record "Croz" was one of the finest offerings he has ever done, since "If I Could Only Remember My Name", and it wasn't "living legend" hackery, or resting on laurels, it was original, contemporary, and miles away from CSN.


dadof2 - 3/9/2016 at 07:32 PM

totally different experience seeing CSN in the 90's & early in 2000's.

yes,they can be horribly off key as they were times i've seen them in the past-the 80's were awful...

but i must have caught the shows all of you missed since they were generally on key(stills?!) & quite enjoyable...and i was in the loge & was a seated old hippie


mikesolo - 3/10/2016 at 02:14 PM

I saw a CSNY reunion show I think back in the 90's and if it wasn't for Neil's energy I would have left or fallen asleep. I agree Stills can still play guitar well and Crosby can be interesting, but zero interest in CSN at this point for me.


heineken515 - 3/10/2016 at 02:42 PM

I recently read Graham's book and his love/hate deal with Crosby is well documented in there.

The book was interesting for its historical significance and all the name dropping he did.

He is now coming across as a guy who doesn't want to be forgotten, all but irrelevant, but trying to stay relevant.


islalala - 3/10/2016 at 03:21 PM

I apparently had completely different experiences than many of you.

I saw them on the tour shortly after 9/11 that supported their self-promoted album ( which is very good and under appreciated ) and then again a few years later when they were playing tunes from Neil's Living with War Album and projecting images of W. while they shouted out "Liar!"

Both were awesome but the edgy political show was so rock'n'roll it qualifies maybe as the best show I've EVER seen. Parts of the crowd were chanting along, other were shocked and gasping, and others were just boogying away.

That wasn't that long ago and not something any mainstream act that I know of would have the courage to do.

Take away the Y, though, and that probably doesn't happen....

Exactly!


porkchopbob - 3/10/2016 at 04:19 PM

I saw CSNY maybe 15 years ago and it was a great show, mostly thanks to Neil Young, though Crosby's "Almost Cut My Hair" was the show stopper. I saw Stephen Stills at Wanee a few years ago and he was fine.

But yeah, I didn't realize they were still together in any way, and no one is aching for new CNY albums.


Joe_the_Lurker - 3/10/2016 at 06:52 PM

Maybe I got a good show or my ears didn't hear the off key stuff, but I got to see them from the 2nd row at the Hartman Arena in Wichita in 2012 and it was absolutely beautiful. I put on their old stuff the next day and turned it back off because it didn't sound nearly as good as it did when it was right in front of me.

This article makes me happy that I got to see them once and check it off my bucket list.

Cool that you were able to catch them on a "good night".....

Guys pushing 70 arguing over email. Oh the times in which we live.

Bingo, circle gets the square

Heard Stills twice in the early seventies, his solo band and Manassas. Great stuff despite him being a bit buzzed at Manassas.

Crosby/Nash, with Don Felder on lead guitar, about the same time. Great.

Never Young, CSN or CSNY.

I like Croz and Stills best outta that crew. David's latest and IICORMN are right in my wheelhouse for psychedelic folk rock.

What do they have left to prove?

David Crosby has provided insight into a simmering feud with Graham Nash that boiled over publicly earlier this month, pointing to Nash’s autobiography as a sticking point.

Nash confirmed the end of Crosby, Stills and Nash, saying he hadn’t been getting along with Crosby for some time.

But before that interview appeared, Crosby had already confirmed the band’s hiatus in a talk with the (San Diego) Union-Tribune. “I wouldn’t say CSN was alive and well, no,” Crosby said in comments from late February that were published this week. “I’d say it’s on indefinite hold.”

Passages that Crosby says were fabricated from Nash’s 2013 memoir Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life appear to have soured their relationship.

“Graham’s book is full of inaccuracies and chock-full of misinformation,” Crosby said. “When he handed [an advance copy] to me, he said, ‘It’s too late to change anything, but here it is.’ I was very unhappy about it. It’s a very shallow, very self-serving book, and full of BS.”

Crosby cited several instances where he insists Nash took too much creative license, writing “things that were not true because they would sell the book.”

As they grew apart, Crosby returned to his solo career, issuing Croz in 2014. Now he has not one but two more albums arriving soon. The first, tentatively titled Lighthouse, is a collaboration with Michael League of Snarky Puppy, a Grammy-winning jazz band. The second project, as with Croz, finds Crosby working with his son James Raymond.

Contacted again by the Union-Tribune yesterday, Crosby avoided talk of Nash. “I don’t want to even go there,” he said. “I’m going to take the high road. I’m very, very happy. And I’m extremely happy the music is coming to me in such a wonderful way. I have a finished album in my computer, and another one on the way. My family loves me, I love them, and I’m having a blast on the road. And that’s my answer to everything.”

Not for nothing but I did think Nash's bio was as tacky as GA's and I wish I had skipped both of them
