Stephen Stills Says Box Set is His Autobiography
Stephen Stills says that his new four-CD, career-spanning box set, called Carry On, will serve as his memoirs. The collection, which will be released tomorrow (March 26th), covers all aspects of Stills’ career, from the age of 17 until now and was compiled by Graham Nash and longtime Crosby, Stills, & Nash photographer and collaborator, Joel Bernstein.
Stills spoke to Rolling Stone, and was asked that since he’s yet to publish his autobiography, if the box set, in effect, is his life story: “This is probably my book. I doubt I will write one of those — most of them are insufferably boring. You know, first about getting high and hanging out, then about chicks and learning an instrument, going to high school, then recovery and the great new life they have with their new wife. It’s the same story, and it’s not exactly mine — there is a lot more to it, but that seems to be the M.O. I liked Keith (Richards)’ book because it sounds like him. But the rest of them — I’m sorry, but they bore the s*** out of me.”
