Crosby Stills and Nash Information
Folk rock group, Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN), is made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. Occasionally, the band was joined by a fourth member, Neil Young. Their intricate vocal harmonies have been said to be similar to Simon & Garfunkel.
The trio's first album was released in May 1969 under the title, "Crosby, Stills & Nash." It was an instant hit containing two Top 40 hit singles. The band included Neil Young sporadically over the next year and then the partnership was strained by success and the group broke up after their summer 1970 tour. Throughout the next year each member released solo albums which all placed in the top 15 on Billboard 200. The band tried to meet again to record a new album but quickly the fighting began again.
In the summer of 1974, however, Roberts finally got the group to realize their commercial potential. They embarked on their first-ever outdoor stadium tour playing both old favorites and new songs. The group continued to bicker throughout the tour and broke up again. Crosby and Nash re-activated their partnership and produced two albums in 1975 and 1976. Stills and Young returned to their solo careers until yet again, Crosby Nash and Stills reunited the trio after Stills approached the pair at one of their concerts in Los Angeles. The group continued to get back together and break-up for the next couple decades. CSN recorded two more studio albums in the 1990s and also an AIDS benefit album in 1994. These albums barely made the top 100 album chart and the group ended up being without a record contract. Young joined back in for an album, "Looking Forward," released under his label Reprise Records. The quartet went on tour in 2000 and 2002 and saw much success.
In 2006, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young went on their "Freedom of Speech" tour in support to Young's album "Living With War." Crosby, Stills and Nash then released an album, "Demos," in 2009 which featured demos recordings of popular group and solo songs. Later that year they performed at the Glastonbury Festival in England and headlined the Gathering of the Vibes festival. 2012 has brought a new tour by Crosby, Stills and Nash through the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Brazil. They also released a 2CD/DVD entitled CSN 2012 in July.
