Stephen Stills Likens Being in CSNY to Jr. High
2013 is shaping up to be yet another busy year for Crosby, Stills, & Nash. The group launches a 42-date American and European tour next month, with the massive new four-CD Stephen Stills box set receiving raves, and a Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young vintage live set from 1974 coming this summer — the band is nearly as visible as they were 40 years ago.
Stephen Stills spoke to Mojo magazine and admitted that there are many disparate elements that go into making CSNY tick, explaining, “It’s sort of like junior high and having certain gangs that come and go. There’s the Graham (Nash) dynamic and there’s the Neil (Young) and me dynamic, and then there’s the David (Crosby) and me dynamic, and it all runs in a little circle. I adore them all. Neil and I get to a place, though, that’s quite extraordinary. But then so do Graham and I. So with all these elements, it’s like a marvelous stew that’s cooked overnight.”
