Graham Nash Says Crosby, Stills & Nash Are Done
Graham Nash has announced the end of Crosby, Stills & Nash. In a new interview, he says that he has had enough of being treated badly by David Crosby. Nash told the Dutch magazine Lust for Life (translated here), “You asked me if there’s more of CSN? My answer is ‘no,’ and that’s very sad, because we’re pretty good. But I don’t like David Crosby right now. He’s been awful to me these last two years, just f—ing awful.”
Formed in 1968 by former members of the Byrds (Crosby), the Hollies (Nash) and Buffalo Springfield (Stephen Stills), CSN made an immediate splash with their debut album. But the beautiful harmonies found within the grooves covered the personal problems its members have had with each other, and the chemistry was even more volatile on those occasions when Neil Young entered the mix. Nash, who added that he and Crosby got into a fight onstage last year, alluded to their long-standing issues in discussing their split.
“I’ve been there and saved his f—ing ass for 45 years,” he continued, “and he treated me like s—. You can’t do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you’re going to come round. But when it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I’m done. F— you.”
In September 2014, Crosby fought with Young, saying that Young’s new girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, was a “purely poisonous predator.” Crosby eventually apologized, but not before Young said would never tour with them again.
