No kidding. When was the last time Neil opened for anyone else? 1968?
Ditto. That's some of the funniest stuff I've read here in awhile.


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


you mean right after he left Stills and the Buffalo Springfield to start his solo career?

And CSN asked Neil to join them not the other way around. Stills actually was reluctant at first cause Neil already dumped him once.

Neil was also apprehensive about joining,thus the reason he doesn't appear on film in Woodstock.


yes CSN did ask neil to join them which is what i said earlier. as far as i know he was asked partly because financially he was struggling. hell he only appears on 4 tracks on deja vu right? the 2 he wrote, the title track and woodstock.

as far as buffalo springfield,out of the 32 tracks they released while together stills wrote 16 and neil wrote 10. maybe young left because he felt his input wasn't being valued

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.


i agree neil young has always done it his way. sometimes thats good and sometimes thats bad

where do you get your info about Neil struggling financially and needing to join CSN for that reason?

Buffalo Springfield broke up so Stills was without a band.

Crosby left the Byrds and Nash left the Hollies.

None of them had any solo work going on except for Neil Young.

can you direct me to some proof of this claim?


stills had the super sessions album which was a big seller. stills was already working on his solo stuff in 1968. where do you get stills needed a band and had nothing. most his first few solo albums were written before 1970.

just because neil was making albums he was well off? hate to break it to you but most artists struggle to break even on album sales and at the time neil's albums weren't lighting up the charts. the first CSN album came out about a year after buffalo springfield broke up. how long do you think it takes to make an album?
