Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Taylor discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn


I don't know. You know, we were young guys who had a whole lot of success really fast, very before we were even could even spell mature. And we had biggie goes. And I wanted a bigger piece of the pie. I wanted to be noticed more. I didn't want to just be the harmony singer. I wanted to write songs and record them. And you know, but I think there was a lot of egos a lot of silliness, you know, normal things for Panton when you started with Crosby Stills Nash was it that same thing that drew in just that feeling of saying harmony with people and feeling these pieces fit together kind of. But by that time, I knew a whole lot more. I knew that. Stephen stills was writing great song. I knew that he was a major talent. And I knew that he was already writing songs that I wanted to sing they were terrific. I'd been tossed out of the birds. I was hanging around LA. I was you know, doing whatever, and I knew Stephen and we'd like to each other. And so I realized early on that the song is the key to the entire thing. If you have a good song that you can sit down and think to somebody with a Qatari, piano and make them feel something then you're in business, then you are on the map you were. On course. If you're trying to do it without having a real song would just having June moon spoon, baby. Well, then you're you know, polishing piece of stuff. You're the central issue. Isn't there? I realize that pretty early on. And it happened. You know, because I was listening to great writers by that time. Taylor was having and was very significant influence on me. And frankly, right after I got toss out of the birds. I went to Florida and walk into a coffee house in their miss Joni Mitchell. And joining when she started out with an experience that you really it would be hard to describe to you. I walked into the door. I stood there. She was singing one of those songs that she wrote. And I was just gobsmacked. I didn't I didn't know anybody could be that good. You fell for joining Mitchell. Romantically. Well, right. Yeah. It was kind of like falling into a cement mixer. Very turbulent girl. And I love her still. But thank God. I'm not with her. Was it scary to be in a relationship with somebody romantic relationship with somebody who you felt like was definitely better at the thing that you had dedicated your life to being a course, of course. And I was producing her record her first record at the same time. And I would write something, you know, like when avair, and I was pretty proud of it, and she would come home and sing me three foams that were better. I would shrivel up a little bit. It was truthfully. It was a massive learning experience. I think in one hundred years they'll look back, and they'll say, okay, who's the best singer songwriter? And it's either her up and she sings rings up rings. She's a much better musician than Bob it, and I love Bob, and he's my friend, and I I'm not trying to slam him. But Stony all the way. She's the best singer songwriter. We've had yet. I'll finish my conversation with David Crosby after a break. Still to come. David. Crosby has some hip hop..
