August 10th at the Sommet Center here in Nashville. I know some of you have had the chance to see Crosby, Stills and Nash, what were your thoughts on the show? I got a chance to see Tom Petty at Bonnaroo a few years ago and it was a GREAT show. 10x better than the Bruce Springsteen last year. Ticket prices are sure to be high, worth the price of admission?

I seen CSN last year here in memphis and David Crosby was off all night..other than that when he didnt sing they sounded ok...now Tom Petty i seen in Raliegh, NC last year and they were awesome of all the times i seen Petty this was one of my favorite shows. Steve Winwood opened up and his band was awesome, during the Tom Petty set he came out and played a song

CSN is not the same without the added Y to the group.

At MSG Winwood came out during Petty's set and did Gimme Some Lovin', Can't Find My Way Home and I think one more song.

I've seen Petty twice and was floored both times! Great show if there wasn't an opener. I saw C,S,N & Y when they reunited in the late 90's. What impressed me most was what a bad a$$ guitarist Steven Stills is! It should still be a good double bill even if Young isn't with them.

Crosby is in such bad financial shape he had to sell his beloved boat The Mayan. Stills isn't in much better shape.

Neil Young does not need CSN in any way,shape or form. He's walked away from Stills on at least three seperate occasions due to boredom.


young does need CSN, whenever his popularity drops or he wants to make people listen to his political views he just rejoins CSN and boosts his own album sales. he did an entire tour with CSNY basically using it as a way to make people hear his living with war album though no one purchased. people actually booed at the concerts for neil's politial ramblings and you can hear people asking for other CSNY songs to be played.

look at the strategically placed CSNY albums. they all came at a time when neil's own solo career had started to decline and each time the solo album released directly after a CSNY album was his best selling other than when he released a sequel to Harvest and teamed up with pearl jam who were huge at the time. as a matter of fact neil was not a successful solo artist until after the deja vu album

van halen opened for bon jovi in europe in 1995 and van halen was much more popular at the time then bon jovi was. van halens 1995 album sold more than triple bon jovi's 1995. sometimes bands do it because they are friends. didn't neil young open for the stones a few times since 1968? also neil young does not play at 10k+ seat venues by himself now


also technically neil young opens for willie nelson every year at farm aid.

Young is a much more prolific writer than CSN combined.
I do not think he needs any one of those guys to advance his political views. He does that just fine by himself. To me, Neil is the spark CSN needs, and I for one will not bother with CSN without Neil.
Saw Neil a few years ago at the United palace in NY. He did a ten song acoustic solo set
and an extended electric set with Crazy Horse. I do not recall any "political ramblings" at that show, just outstanding music.

his concerts aren't always a political forum. yes he sure does write a lot of stuff but i don't enjoy much or what he's done the past decade

Ditto. That's some of the funniest stuff I've read here in awhile.

Both of them are great together and apart. I have seen Neil with different bands many times and different incarnations of CSN many times and they have always all been great. Neil doesn't need them and they don't need him, but when they do get together the music goes to another level. I would still see either or both live any time.

where are you getting neil young was a popular draw in 1968? the man was struggling as a solo artist which is why he joined CSN in the first place

On CSN&Y both are good. If I remember right Young joined to make there live performances better. On the Living with War tour again if I remember right Crosby Stills and Nash new what they were getting into and supported the idea of the tour and some of the statements the album made (I really liked this album when it came out but it was an album for that time and hasnt aged well). Now for these shows maybe Mike Campbell and Tom Petty will sit in on some of the songs that CSN normally wouldnt do without Young. Anyway good double bill heck I like all the openers

Agree completely.

The Y is essential.

Add the Y and the whole thing rises to another level.

I threw 1968 out as the last time he might have opened for someone else (not that he was wildly popular at that point). I have no idea really. All I know is that he's been consistently popular since the beginning of the 70's (the nineteen seventies!).

No one has done it more his way musically over these last 40 years, revenue be damned, than Mr Young. I think your disagreement with his politics is clouding your judgement on his career musically.

1969 Neil Young
1969 Everybody Knows....
1970 After The Goldrush
1972 Harvest
1973 Time Fades away
1974 On The Beach
1975 Tonight's The Night
1975 Zuma

I don't think Neil was ever a struggling solo artist , he had a legendary start to his career as a solo artist , most would envy his early output .

those are all great albums but as far as breaking into the mainstream after the goldrush made a dent but harvest was his breakthrough
