"Reissues a few months ago and today David. Crosby. Is My guest David Welcome back to the World Cafe. It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you. It's great to have you here. We're GONNA talk about those CPR reissues in a bit but I I just wanted to check in because we're making the show remotely due to the lockdowns of the pandemic and all of that we're talking over video chat right now I'm all the way up in Toronto where exactly are you at the moment? I am in central California. Behind Santa, Barbara in a valley called Santa Ynez Valley And it's very odd here right now because the fires have made it so that you can't see the sky. People yesterday in in San Francisco we're seeing it was like darkness at noon the spooked it was so bad at. The whole west coast is kind of on fire and. It's beautiful where I am right this second but that's because my place is beautiful is grass and trees I got beautiful trees around here. It's a little place. It's not big. It's an adobe house sitting in the middle of trees. And It's peaceful. That's one of the best parts I should say that it is September tenth when we're doing this today, and like you said, huge parts of the west coast are consumed by wildfires right now. Are you safe? There is Keeping an eye on it and stuff. Yeah. No I live in the middle of a cow pasture. In a in a bunch of trees but but in the middle of cow pasture and my houses adobe with a tile roof so it doesn't burn. And No we're not in any danger right now. We're just which would that. Wasn't going on because you know there's tremendous loss of wealth wife tremendous loss of trees which I love. And on Tough it's tough to watch it on. Yeah I'm really glad that you're okay and I see that we have this chance to talk It's exciting that you've reissued these CPR because most people are listening are likely familiar with CS and whose names those letters stand for but maybe not as familiar. As they are with their later group CPR, we know the C. stands for Crosby tell us about the person the P. stands for. Jeff P. Bar is a guitar player friend of mine. I hurt him. He was playing guitar for Mark Cohen and. I just loved how he played. He's a, he's a wonderful player. And then we get to the are and that's a really good story Yeah Dame's Raymond. You probably do know the story. The rest of the world probably mostly of this story. Let's check again anyway. Yes, it. In A long time ago. I cost a baby to be born I'm not gonNA say how but can guess. And He was put up for adoption by his mother and. Many years later. Okay. How many many years later like thirty years later? Having spent all of that time knowing that there was a kid out there and not able to track that kid not able to know and worrying, of course torturing myself. So easily dumpster to snowstorm somewhere. And on. Wondering, truthfully honest to God wandering and. So now I'm in the UCLA and dying. Of God Hepatitis C. and I am literally trying they're trying to save my life, but it's not going well. But everybody in the world does worry 'em. I mean Ucla and it's in the papers. He's UCLA to transplant. Scott. And so I'm getting in Ucla in the hospital room. Santa Claus size bags of mail. I mean the huge. Yeah and they don't come out on a on the other bed in the room rate and there'd be like a mound, a huge amount of letters and we go through them because I had to do. And I get a letter that says, hi, we're John Madeline Raymond and we raise your son James. Well. and. I I know somehow we know. That this is the one now I've gotten a couple of others and they were fakes, but this one. I knew it was right. Somehow I knew it was. We ranch to meet at. UCLA. On any watching the door, the of the little. Cafe there and he's Just beautiful. He's a beautiful young man. He's he's really really. A beautiful young man and he comes over and talks to me. and. He does the most wonderful thing. You normally those meet ups go very badly. Everybody brings too much baggage you win. We're good enough for you and mom. He didn't do that. He gave me a clean slate and let me earn his my way in his life and become his friend and his father. and. It's one of the kind things versi nudity do and and really has changed my life because he has become. My best writing partner in life. The best one I've ever worked with is a better musician than I am. and. I mean by considerable amount. Educated musician and a keyboard player in the really brilliant composer. Writer. Nine. So that's the story on CPR. I couldn't resist go in forming a band with James and I have been working with him ever since he he was also keyboard player and see us and he was also keyboard player and Crosby Nash. If I work in a band. He's the keyboard player and. He's been.

"Like when listen to live bootlegs and I feel like you can really hear him the deterioration more than the other guys like I think crosby Nash like they still sing like really well, like meal of course still sounds great but like stills like. I duNNo. Like you really hear the ravages of time click as you get into these later records. Yeah. I I feel horrible saying this but I look at stills I hear his voice and some reason that but I I think of like Brian Wilson I think like this figure that had such a singular instrument that's now not there and he doesn't seem to be trying really in some of the latter decades of of his career. Which is hard. It's hard and like in a way though it's been like humbling for him like you see interviews with him now and he's much more magnanimous i. think then he ever would have been in the seventies. You know there was that there was that whole story and we'll get into this I think in our next episode about Neil Young but you know there was like another Buffalo Springfield reunion in the early two, thousand ten that like Neil young ended up short-circuiting basically but. Before that happened like I think rolling stone was talking to stills about working with Neil and again like we've talked a lot in this episode about like prime like Neil Young Stephen Stills. Week we're locking heads because they were both like Alpha dogs you know they both wanted to have control of whatever musical situation that they were in at that point he was basically just saying like, Hey, like it's a privilege to work with Neil Young like, I'm lucky to do anything with this guy and You know in a way you could say like Oh isn't that great that he has that perspective but I don't know I I missed the Alpha Dog Stephen Stills like I missed the full Jersey Coke snowboarding. Yeah Guy Falling off a horses and then he gets back on the horse. To make a rock record like that guy I. Love that guy from the seventies again like I love all the Stephen Stills records from the seventies even the ones that aren't that great because I feel like he really had a strong personality that even shown through when he was experimenting with like different genres and different instrumentation that like didn't totally suit. Him You know, but he's still had this visionary quality to him where it's like I can play Latin music. I can play country music. I can play disco music because I am Stephen stills naked, make it work, and he just feels like kind of broken. Now looking at his first solo record that had hendrix Clapton in a beetle on it I mean. Competence the be like, yeah I'm fine. I, can go ahead with these guys I cannot imagine I don't know and may you know maybe it really was neil even on that tour I almost feel like a lot of ways never fully recovered from that if I actually like. His Solo work and stuff it really did seem to break them in a way. Man Kneels Machiavelli man, he broke Stephen Stills appear passive aggression. UNBELIEVABLE WE'RE GONNA take a quick break. He had a word from our sponsor for we get to more rivals..

"But like you know for the stills young man, he's like Oh let's play fountain blue. You know this is the best I can come up with for this. Bad. So it seems like maybe his commitment wasn't totally into the group and then they ended up going on tour together and like young just rip stills East. He rips his heart out again there on two separate tour buses and after showing South Carolina Neal's tour bus takes literal fork in the road and goes in different direction than stills still gets to the next destination and arrives at the hotel finds telegram. It says, dear, Stephen, funny things that start spontaneously and that way eat appears Neil. God eat a peach man eat a peach once you say fuck you. That's like such a fuck you move from Neil Young I mean again. I'm so torn here because I love Neil Young I love Stephen Stills the Neil Young Fatemi is like that's pretty awesome that he just decided. He didn't want to be on this tour. He's following his music and he bailed the Stephen Stills fan in me is like what a Dick how could Neil Young Stephen Stills? At Lake Stephen Sills was shattered by that. He kept really pathetic quote. He was like ask for comment after Neil left and he said I have no future. Official comment on the matter which I mean it's. I think Neil went out on tour like the official reason that he left that he was on the on vocal rest it was like doctor's orders and he couldn't sing. But then he went out on tour like weeks after like on his own. So that's the rub salt and still wounds. So we talked to the last episode of course. But what happens next stills? He's been abandoned by Neil Young. So then he ends up reuniting with crosby and Nash who were pissed off about the long. May you run incident and they made CNN in nineteen seventy seven which was a pretty big hit record I think it's up selling four million copies. Really showed, you know after all this time, you know even though these guys weren't as successful on their own anymore the brand of S. was still really strong and would like move records if these guys got back together and I mean, we talked about this before crosby episode about the whole story around daylight. Again, which I think is a fascinating sort of example of like how the brand really took over I think at that point because like these guys I mean really none of these guys were were in great shape but the record company felt like, well, your last record sold four million copies. Of course you know the record you put out in the early seventies were also huge hit. So like let's have another CNN record but like the whole story rain-delayed again, it's kind of depressing. Like how that record came together remember crosby was just he was in no shape to record so. Stills Nash just out of pure necessity got together and they financed the recording themselves and the sort of film for where we're crosby's vocals would have been. They had people art Garfunkel and Timothy B. Schmidt sing those parts and executives of Atlantic were like basically no. Thanks call. We can get crossed back into the picture because. Nobody wants a stills, NASH ALBUM THEY WANNA see US N. record so we can just like me money. So they got crosby back in who I mean. It was like weekend at Bernie's style they really just. Problem. Up I. Mean he had Delta with an amazing song but that was really his only serious contribution to the album which did great. got like number eight and went platinum but it was it was mostly through..

"I don't really feel it and I think he even said later somebody else at like you know Bob Dylan's not real songwriter and all this shop. So, anyway, he's very underwhelmed hearing these songs. Then Bob Dylan he looks at Stephen Stills and he's like okay, Stephen? Want you play me something you just wrote l.. Stills kind of froze up then and like you know the story fizzled out and I just love that idea that like Bob Dylan's playing tangled up in blue instills is like. Don't like enough orem exactly. It just such a great portrait of like how insane he was at this time and like how his ego and really gone was had I. Think at this point is this the same era where he was insisting that during the time that he was in Buffalo Springfield he was a secret. Agent and went on like secret undercover missions in Vietnam or something. I made like some really outrageous claims around this time to yeah. There's all these stories about him. Yeah. Like claiming that he went to Vietnam. In this era and that he was also I think wearing military gear like backstage and he'd. Have people go through like different like military paces. You know I don't know if they're like literally marching backstage but like he was I dunno, it was like he was Colonel Kurtz in A. that. So yeah, it's like ego and again cocaine and like, yeah, you're on this huge tour everyone is catering to you and you know like more than anyone else in this band and I think you know all these guys again as we've said are like. The axe it seems like in this era and in particular like the fame and the drugs were really going to Stephen Stills as head. Yeah. When David Crosby isn't the most insane person a group of people that group of people the dysfunction level is so far off the charts that it defies description i. think that's where we're at now is still in this era and the fact that they tried to get back together after this tour to finish human highway blows my mind I mean they just they knew how financially successful that would have been but Jesus Christ yeah, they tried to do. That again, and it clearly didn't work and not only that but like Stephen Stills again, it's like with Neil young like he couldn't quit Neil young and like so they ended up having this album where they're gonNA make a record together at the first stills young record and it ends up being called long. May you run and we talked about this in our previous episode about how for a time crosby and Nash were involved in their vocals ended up getting wiped out which really pissed them off so much that they refused to work with stills for like three months and then they. Reunited again. But in terms of stills in young, they made this record and the title track by Neil Young is great I mean that's a classic song I feel like allows the other Neil young songs on that record like pretty lightweight and like not that great, and it's amazing to think that this was the same era that he was making albums like on the beach and Zuma, and you know tonight's the night where he had like a lot of great songs laying around..

"It's all over the map and it really is a testament to like what stills was capable of like when he had his wits about him and you know, I'm such a stills fan boy that I'll even. Like stump for the solo records that came after that like stills in illegal stills and even like thoroughfare gap Whoa I know that's like the disco record that he made What's that song is a song like with booty in the title I. CAn't remember like go get your booty or something like that. It's like not very good. Also, he's on a horse on the cover of that Wrexham, didn't learned his lesson from before when he got thrown off but you know there was something that happened I think after seventy two or so where. He lost his way and I think you had to do with the drug and alcohol abuse that he was going through. You was also again in his own as much. Talked about crosby in our last episode alienating people you. Did that a lot too just because again I think he had this very force for energy about him that I think was routed a lot in creativity I think he just had like a lot of music he wanted to get out of himself, but he just wasn't very diplomatic about going you know to people and getting them to join him in the way that I think Neil young was able to do. You just drove people away because he was so intense. Yeah. There's the great quote that stills had about Manassas. He said my new band is a dictator ship and I liked that my experience with democracy in Rockin roles at it's a total failure and feel that. encapsulates his entire working methods of the early seventies right there, and the fact that he would say that allowed to I think is the problem because I think honestly I think Neil Young feels the same way I think on his albums. He doesn't look at himself as anything other than a dictator I think he's very controlling of like what he does his own music..

"I don't want to spend too much time on this. But like this is like a Maquiavelian thing here like where he could. Assume so much control by like again, appearing to be passive. And it's such a telling contrast was still because like when he was witnessing this going on still doesn't take notes in like say like well, maybe I should be more like Neil I should lay back and maybe they'll come to me he used becomes more aggressive and like he like is asserting himself even more like this around the time and I think this actually ended up on four way street where he started playing the piano version of for what Where like he? Like starts? Banging away the piano and he's like ranting at the crowd where he's like, it becomes like this Gospel number almost, and it's like really self-indulgent. It just goes on forever and like I know those an instance on on one of these shows like we're literally wouldn't leave the stage like during his acoustic portion of the show like he played four and twenty and in Black Queen, and it just drove the rest of the band up the wall and. I think it really ended up as much as anything derailing that tour well, and then of course, not only their professional differences as the get your personal differences to Stephen. At this point, he was dating Rita Coolidge, the backing singer veteran of the really tumultuous Delaney and Bonnie Tour and mad dog an English. Mentor really loved dysfunctional. Rock. And she hit the Jackpot with this she met stills when she was invited to sing on the session for Love the one you're with, and she really liked Graham Nash she kinda saw them across the room and they started talking to everyone likes Graham Nash, the Ladies Man Yeah. He's like the ladies man yeah, and national. Next time we're in. La To play show Gimme a call. You'll be my day albeit Stevens House. Here's this number she calls Stevens House Stephen. Intercepts the call, Oh yeah. Graham. Graham changed his mind but but I'm free so she and still start having a thing and then Nash ends up finding out about it and so there's this love triangle between the mall with Rita as the as sort of the main point and I, guess midway through the tour sort of the end of.

"But he's he's nervous and he gets there and he's playing and he sees like Paul McCartney in the front row and the midway through Paul's gone and he didn't realize the Paul just went up to the cheap seats till I be part of the crowd but he thinks the Paul McCartney walked out and he's feeling really insecure and the British press do what? They. Do and just sort of give middling reviews of the of the concert and it gives an interview right after the show where he says, you know I started that was a really beautiful idea this band full of enthusiasm and ideals. But now a lot of that feeling is gone between us and that really sort of sets the stage for the tour. Later that year in the in the summer of seventy where it starts to fall apart he fires basis Greg, reeves on the eve of their the US tour for a number of reasons one he thinks that just greg is it's too inconsistent and how he plays and for somebody like Stephen who really wants things to be a certain way that's not. Going to fly with him and also I guess Greg Neil were getting really tight greg was on the Goldrush and I'm sure that made them uncomfortable. Made him think that maybe Gregg wasn't an ally with him anymore. So He Fires Greg they have this awful opening night on their tour where stills thrown off a horse, and so he hobbles onto the stage on crutches. And he's great story by the way I love that story. I'm sorry. Sorry Paul a Horse but like. Where are you writing a horse stills especially again, like you're doing cocaine all day long and now you're gonNA. Top out a horse just doesn't seem like a good idea. He's onstage injured on stage. He's playing over everybody. He's he's back in Neil's he's helpless and he's playing piano plan all over him and Neil's like shoot them dirty looks like dude back off. This is this is my song quiet song. He's just really inconsistent. All Night Cross calls him to play his solo set in the middle of the show and he's like nowhere to be found and eventually in the middle of everybody I. Love You I Guess Neil is is just so fed up with all this the erotic playing that Neil to Texas guitar off sets down on the stage and storms off and.

"Do get registered, it takes two minutes to do this, but it has a huge impact. Don't wait register today and vote on November third. And can really start to see that really come to the fore when they start making deja Vu, which is the first record that they make with Neil Young. And we talked about this a little bit in our previous episode about how Stills was pretty hard on crosby during this time you know he was making them do all these takes of the title track. He was belittling or cut my hair maybe with justification you know we'll see. But know he was again trying to be the taskmaster that he was on the first record and I think also. Getting to cocaine at this time. So like this is the period again where he's just like in the studio for like five days straight not leaving you know just wanting to get everything right and you know he had the problems with crosby that we already talked about but then he also like really kind of ran afoul of national young to at this time. Didn't he? Yes. It was a time for kind of everybody in the band and and stills relationship with Judy Collins was ending and and. He started coming up with these really sort of sad down songs like ivory tower, which later became sugar babe and this annoyed Graham really wanted to leave listeners with like a positive message even say like you know what's the point of bringing other people down with your sadness? So he didn't really like the attitude of a lot of still songs at that time. He also resented stills kind of meddling with his songs even when they made him better I guess they got a huge fight over. Our House, the stills wanted to add like an organ part instead of having that kind of slightly tweet Harpsichord thing and I guess teach your children was going to be I. Think Graham, describe it as a Henry, the eighth style Song and then it was still who made it like the it like sort of country countrified..

"He envisioned their first record being just a pure acoustic record because you know when they would play their early shows that really even shows just playing for people around Laurel Canyon showing off their harmonies. It really was just about these. Lovely Acoustic. Ballads and their harmonies but stills wanted there to be an electric element to the record as well as he wanted there to be some like rock and roll credibility. So even while still was writing these beautiful folk becks sweet Judy Blue Eyes for instance is still sung and that kicks off the record and really sets the tone for what that records can be, and then you have you don't have to cry helplessly hoping again, all still songs if you like in terms of like being in a ranger like he's the one who like gave that record, it's sort of epic sound like wooden ships, for instance. Or longtime gone. He's the one that you know is R-. Really like laying on the overdubbed and in making it more than just this sort of twee folk record it is like a big time rock record. Oh Yeah. I always thought he was basically the musical director of that time I mean I i. think the the Cross handled a lot of the vocal harmonies but like you said, he was the one who would who would spend long long long days in the studio sometimes multiple taste a row which would become a problem later on but he was really he would say in interviews you know I don't. mind. If I said that the first album was was mostly my baby exactly I. think he really envisioned that again that acoustic electric hybrid because you know this was also the era of late Jimi Hendrix and cream a lot of these like really over amped blues, rock bands and Crosby stills Nash Wasn't antidote to that I mean they did kick off that singer Songwriter Movement that really ended up playing a big part especially La Music of the Nineteen Seventies. So along with having that, you know sort of rock credibility that stills brought to the table. Again I feel like his songs more than the other guys on that. Record are just such great examples of like early L. LA singer songwriter folk music helplessly hoping for instance, which is still one of my favorite crosby stills Nash and young songs. Maybe my favorite it's like such a beautiful song. It really takes you back to that time in a really evocative way. Love how Jimi Hendrix described their sound as western Sky Music I don't know what it is, but it fits perfectly I know. I. Agree that it's absolutely true. But the thing about being captain many hands as that like you can't be captain many hands on stage you know they needed someone else who could help fill out Their sound when they played live and that's how you end up getting Neil young back in the band or Stephenville's like, okay. This guy terrorized me. But maybe this time we'll be different right I'd be like, why would he bring him back I fold I he wanted Steve Winwood and I guess Steve was like no, I'm busy doing blind faith right now I got better things to do and so on Erdogan who you know being the Buffalo Springfield fan boy kept pushing for Neil and he eventually was the one who convinced stills to give it another shot and then everybody else in the band too I think was Even. Like you sure you want to do. This is still now it'll be different this time. It's cool. It's cool. It will. It will be great. So they got neil the sign on on the condition that he would be made full partner name in the marquee because I think in the beginning they just kind of wanted to have him be like Dallas Taylor and and Greg Reeves just be another guy on the stage and stills would say you know don't everybody will know it's everybody will know you're there but but eventually.

"Neil young songs and neither really went anywhere in terms of being hit the next single however for what it's worth a Stephen Still Song that of course ends up being a huge hit and it's a song that even to this day I think is like one of the iconic sixties I guess protest songs. It's not like an explicit protests more song about protesting I think but. You hear that Guitar Hook on the song and the you know, hey, stop what's that sound everybody looks going down I mean it's such a famous song I mean it was revived recently at the Democratic National Convention, it's a song that like you hear you still feel like it has modern relevance and I think that's on becoming a hit. It probably emboldened stills at that time to feel like Oh, yeah. This is my band like I'm writing the biggest song. I can really take control here and it doesn't seem like it's a coincidence that like once that's becomes a big hit. That's when Neil young starts looking at the door essentially like he's now feeling like, okay, I don't. Really want to be in this band and it is very fascinating dynamic that exists between these two guys because as you said, like Stephen Stills had this militaristic background which is going to manifest itself. In kind of funny ways wants beginning to the seventies and the cocaine starts flowing We'll get into that later in this episode but you know he was I. think much more overt about asserting his control in the band whereas Neil young was much more passive aggressive like he asserted his power by like not showing up and not doing certain things. So like there was this famous instance where Buffalo Springfield, you're going to be the first rock band on the Carson show and. Neil young decided to bail at the last minute and Neil Young also decided to bail at the Monterey pop festival, which as we all know, that's like the debut of Hendrix. It's like where the WHO really broken America. It like Brooks. So many bands Janice Joplin became a star there. You know Neil youngest sort of intentionally doing things to sandbag Buffalo Springfield, which, of course, is directly hurting stills because he's extremely ambitious and we alluded to this in our previous episode I feel like this is the beginning Neil young just terrorizing stephen stills psychologically. It's like Charlie Brown in the football. Even spills as Charlie Brown and Neil. Young as Lucy, right? I. Mean that seems to be a dynamic that plays out repeatedly in their relationship. Oh. Yeah. I mean even women get back today and did the Buffalo Springfield reunion twenty. And Neo bounced on that like seven dates in or something yes. I mean fifty years later he's still he's still looking at the door whenever he's still too long. Yes. I mean as much as we valorize Neil Young for being this uncompromising unpredictable artists and valorize him for that I mean I love Neil, young if you look at it from Stephen Stills. Perspective, I feel like he was the victim of that a lot maybe more than anyone else as we're going to see as this episode unfolds but in the short term as we are in the timeline right here, this essentially short circuits Buffalo Springfield before they can really of realize their potential as a band which sends Stephen Stills Adrift Looking For a new project. Yeah, and he spends a lot of the late sixties like kind of playing with short lived musical collaborations. He did the famous Super Sessions with Al Cooper Bloomfield, which is interesting album but he but he wants to create this Everley brothers style harmony duo with David Crosby who are on the same time booted from the birds and recorded some demos under the name I love the frozen noses a right every early prime on the earlier cocaine references in in sixties pop I gotta say Yeah we and we talked about. That in our crosby episode, how that ended up coming together because I?.

"Traffic jams in rock history. Great for two traffic jams. This this only happened in the sixties I think you could just be. Driving around randomly and then you're GonNa meet like Oh. Yeah. What's form band with this guy and we're going to be icon on the side of the road. Oh Yeah. I mean incredible story and from what I understand. It was like a couple of weeks later in April nineteen, sixty six that Buffalo Springfield made their debut and it came together really quickly. The whole sort of I don't WanNa, call it a gimmick, but the crux of the band was centered around the interplay between Neil and Stevens. Guitar, work that was kind of like you know their gimmick. Really it was a time when bands lewd of the selves to like really short little tight eight Bar Solos. Listen to like George Harrison Solos and stuff in. The stones it really they weren't these long winding guitar pyrotechnics that you hear. Later in the decade, there are really short and I think it's important to point out too that this is like before the allman brothers, it's before Leonard Skinner. It's before like a of the famous guitar bands that we're used to seeing where there's to. Qatar. Players going at it. I mean like Buffalo Springfield like really were pioneers in that kind of sound and it's fascinating that they didn't really get a chance to pursue it in part because I guess nealon Stephen couldn't get along. Yeah. It's funny. You read all the reviews of their live shows at that time and and even some of their studio work and they always describe the guitar. Solos violent terms like dealer and bowels war and you know it's kind of the way it was. I mean you've got still sort of more blues based solely on the Neal's of a tonal squeals, the stuff that you be known for later on I think the track bluebird is probably the coolest example von record of how they played off each other. That's such an amazing song. Yeah absolutely. Yeah. Off the Buffalo. Springfield again record, which was their second and last record as a band. Yeah. I mean you you hear the tension in the track stills in some of the early press byles for the ban. There's actually a line that says Stephen Stills is the leader at least he thinks he is which is. Pretty Amazing. Even early on there were like Kinda joking not so joking at this he would say, yeah, I was trying to be the boss. You know I I had this military upbringing in the south and went to military school and they taught me how to be an officer and I was trying to like you know just be the leader here and that graded on young Neil who is equally strong willed but I think more quiet and reserved and they butted heads the whole time. Yeah and you. Can See this play out in the singles that were coming out early in Buffalo Springfield career because the first couple of singles that came out you had nowadays clancy can't even sing and burned which were both.

"And welcome to rivals the show about music beefs and feuds and long simmering resentments between musicians. I'm Steve and I'm Jordan and welcome the second of our three part series on crosby stills, Nash, and young. Today we're going to focus on Stephen Stills the unofficial musical director in the band's early. Days later US chief aggressor as he struggled with his old. Buffalo Springfield bandmate Neil young to maintain its dominance. They're basically the US and Russia the CSM NY called dynamic. I mentioned this in our first episode in this series. But like I remember, you said that David Crosby is your favorite member of the band and I episode for me like my favorite is Stephen Stills at least of like the nine Neil Young members like I feel like you have to distinguish meal young like the rest of the band I mean Neil is definitely the biggest but in terms of just like the rest of the guys I, I'm a genuine fan of Stephen Sills I think again outside Neil Young. He's the best songwriter, the most talented musician and the most charismatic and people forget that in many ways like. was his baby in the beginning that first album the iconic record where it's him and Graham Nash and David Crosby sitting on that couch in the house and I think that's still like my favorite record like the come out of this collective like that was Stephen Stills. Is like work like he played most of the instruments he was as you said, the musical director of the band and he wrote. Like many the best known songs like Sweet Judy Blue Eyes and helplessly hoping those are all Stephen still songs and his ambition like really fueled this group at the beginning. Yeah. I feel like stills have been really overshadow recent years and navy's because Nash Torso months and he has his memoir and crosses so prolific in the studio and on twitter and Neil Neil young but I feel like still you know Was the main reason for these guys come together and he's the Lynch pin of the sound in so many ways and he just Kinda I, feel like he gets forgotten.

"Santana the Eisley brothers' together two years ago record call power of peace it's interesting to think that these veterans of the Woodstock era the actual show at least in the case of Santana would take this approach where their contemporaries blood sweat and tears back in sixty nine took a very traditionally jazz approach to their version of god bless the child when the folks of latched on to through the years Paul couple cut it with you the song book on W.

Do you recall? The last time you were in Saint Louis, David. No. But I mean, you know of in their played there many. Yeah. Did you ever play the Sheldon concert hall? No. But so many thousands of places, man. I can't remember them. All. Yeah. You sure have. I mean, you have perform truly historical concerts Monterey. Woodstock ultimate Live Aid. What what what what are you most proud of in your career? My children. Yeah. No. I'm proud of. A lot of the work that had done. I think I think he did good work. I think see us and why did good work? I think CPR did good work. I like the Crosby Nash records. I I I think I've done a fair amount of good work. I think the last four records they made. The last they're all, you know. There with these two bands that I've got now cross which was produced by me, son, James Raymond, and then lighthouse which was produced by Michael league and then sky trails produced by James framed. And then here if you listen this last one which was produced by Michael leak, and those two bands have been stretching me really, I they're all young guys young guys and women, and they have to paddle faster just to keep up man there. It's really good for me. Well, the concert that's going to take place at the Sheldon on may fifteenth. It's billed as an evening with David Crosby and friends in one of those friends is your son James, Raymond who you just met. Yep. And he came to Kansas producer for this guy trails fan, and he's also my code writer on probably more more than anyone else. I've written with James than anyone else in my life, and he's a really int- writer employer. And then on that bad is descended from CPR it which was Crosby Pibor and Raymond James. And I and then Jeff peeve are and then my lease playing bass and then on she just shown a small who. So it again, we're strimmer. Playing drums and then Michelle Willison both of my pants. She's she's thinks the top harmony plays keyboards. She's really good. So it's a pretty big on samba. We're going to see when you come here. Yeah. It's it's the bigger of the two bands. And it's electric and we play probably half, you know, old stuff. Deja-vu could've your longtime gone ships all that stuff. And and half new brand new stuff. Lava can't wait. The reason I ask you about the Sheldon concert hall. If you haven't played there before I was interviewing Rodney crawl who you may know a month ago, and he's actually performing tonight as we record this this interview at the Sheldon concert hall, and he's played there before and he described it as being like on the inside of an acoustic guitar, the stage is just so lively, I think you'll really like, oh, boy sounds good to me. Yeah. Tell us the story if you would about how you reconnected with your son James, Raymond, if you could kind of set that up for us. Here's how it worked his mom. Put him up for adoption when he was born. He was raised by a very very sweet couple when he got married, and when he was about to have his first child his parents. Well, you're gonna have a kid you, you should know what the genetic sorry. If you know who your actual, you know, birth father is if you want to and he said, yeah, let's not. So I've been working in find out who who he was new existed, but you can't track from the parent down you can only track from the kid up. So finally he did. And then he found out. It was me. And then he got a hold of me. And he did the most wonderful thing, man. Normally those meet ups go badly because somebody brings too much baggage. It's like a how come you left me? Mom, we weren't gonna we weren't good enough for you know, that kind of thing. Right. And and it doesn't it doesn't happen. They just butt heads, and then walkaway scarred. He gave me a chance to earn my way. Way into his life. And and be a friend and a father and a buddy and a co musician and a co writer, and he's that's a very generous cap to do that, man. That's very sweet into dot. That's gotta be so rare in these in Israel, really, really good. It's really an elevated approach to the thing. So I love him for that. If you just tuned in our special guests is David Crosby revisiting with David. He's going to be in Saint Louis in on may fifteenth, David you've had some pretty defining moments in your life. You know, people have read about this. You had a liver transplant heart disease, diabetes, you're seventy eight now first of all how is your health? Seventy seven is good seven seven sorry doesn't make any sense at all. It's completely backwards. I I'm pretty healthy and very happy. And I'm singing as well or better than I ever have it. So at least that's my friends told me, so well, it's sure yourself about coatings, but you've had these defining moments and one thing I would like you to tell the story, and I know you told the story before, but you did nine months in Texas jail for drug related charges. And you ended up writing the judge a letter thanking him. Yes. I did tell us about that. Well. Jails a bitter pill. It's really hard. It means you screwed up. And I did and. Thing that happened though was wonderful. I because they got locked up. It got me off a hard drugs. And I'd been trying to do that for quite concurrent and been able to. But when you when you do it in in there, you don't have any choice. You know, you're locked up period. That's it. So I wrote him and I told him listen logo at normally what you're dealing with is recidivism you're dealing with people going right back to the same steak. And I said I see that all the time. And you see it all the time. And I wanted to know that this time. What you did work. I'm sober. I'm happy I'm going to meetings. I'm with my wife, and in our lives are changed and very very good. And I wanted to thank you for it. I wonder if he ever received a letter like that before in his career. I don't know. But he he he was moved by the the letter that he got now there's a documentary that I understand has been released on your life called remember my name, and it's billed as an unvarnished look at your life. Tell us a little bit about that. And where can we find it working? We see it. It will be out. And in theaters Sony classics has got it. What happened is that that Cameron Crowe, you know, years, right? I I have I read about this. And I saw him through that. But I I did not get. Here's the guy who directed almost Seamus. Yes. Okay. Okay him. Right. You started out writing for Rolling Stone. When he was fifteen years old. That's when he met me. He came on the road with us. I like him a lot. I talked to him very freely. So he's known me ever since then. And he's the questions he produced this documentary, and he's going to ask the questions and. Because it was him. And because we had a really good relationship because I trusted him. I was. The most honest I've ever been in. He asked me the hardest questions I've ever been. So I think it's a very it's gritty. But I think it's very real very unusually real. And that's good. He must be the best person ever to do this. Having known you since he was fifteen years old. That's incredible. He's a great guy, man. He's a great director. That's David Crosby. I'm Clint hoc- on the voice of Saint Louis. KOMO.
