CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG

"Teach Your Children" live


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

This was originally a trio formed in 1969 by ex-Byrds member David Crosby, ex-Buffalo Springfield Steve Stills and ex-Hollies Graham Nash. They had been fine songwriters for their earlier bands, but had felt restricted by their pop/commercial concepts ( especially Crosby and Nash ). While still with the Byrds, Crosby had flirted and jammed with Buffalo Springfield, so it was a logical thing to join up with Stills after having been ousted from the Byrds.

Nash had felt that the Hollies were going too commercial and he had left for America the pursue a new musical career. With his high-pitch tenor vocals he fitted in perfectly with the other two. Neil Young joined for a second album in 1970 to do a studio and a live album.

The four of them have worked together during the last four decades in various constellations; as duos, trio or as a four-piece. They have all released several solo albums. Neil Young has obviously been the most succesful both artistically and commercially.

I have chosen to concentrate on the 1968-1980 period which I find the most interesting

Band Members:

Graham Nash: Born 1942. Composer, vocals, guitar. Nash is a fine songwriter and his highpitched vocals were a trademark for the Hollies as well as his C.S.N.&Y recordings.

Stephen Stills: Born 1945. Composer, vocals, guitar. Besides being a fine songwriter Stills is also a great guitarist

David Crosby: Born 1941 . Composer, vocals, guitar. Crosby writes an occasional fine songwriter; his often untraditional song-writing did not always fit in with the Byrds´ ideas

Neil Young: Born 1945. Composer, vocals, guitar. Young is a higly original and influental songwriter. Both his guitar-style and vocals are very personal and easily recognized.

Dallas Taylor: Drums and Percussion. Played with the group in the early years
