In an interview with Hillel Italie of The Associated Press that appeared in the Calgary Herald, Nash said: ““I love him to death. I’ll make music with him for the rest of my life, but he’s a very selfish man. Part of me admires the fact that he has the strength to follow his muse, but he doesn’t realize that there are other people involved in this world.”

Italie writes: “Few were so profoundly changed by rock ‘n roll and the 1960s as Nash, a child of working class, Second World War-era Britain who first became a star as a grinning harmony singer for the Hollies and, just as he feared he was locked into a life of screaming teenagers and two-minute love songs, let his hair down as part of Crosby, Stills and Nash.”

The article goes on to state that  Young is the book’s enigma and fatal attraction,. Nash sees his time with Young as a “long, strange trip” with a man whom he regards as having a heart with two faucets: hot and cold.

One tale from the cold side: Young’s memoir, Waging Heavy Peace, which came out in 2012.

“My ego got in the way,” Nash said during the interview when asked about the book. “When he talked about his wife’s dog more than he did about me and Stephen and David it pissed me off. I’ve made music with Neil Young for 40 years and I don’t deserve a better mention than as an appendage to his dog?”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young 1974 Live Album Put Off Until Next Year

Add the upcoming 1974 live album by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to the long list of CSN projects that will be out “someday.”

Scheduled for August 27, the document of the groups 1974 tour is now pushed out until 2014. Graham Nash told ABC Radio News that there are two reasons for the delay.

“We were gonna bring it out in August, but next year is the 40th anniversary of the tour, and so I’m gonna wait for spring of next year.

“You gotta understand, our shows were three or four hours long and there are four of us and we were all writing like crazy. I just found a one-minute, 10-second song of Neil Young’s about Richard Nixon that I can’t leave off. It’s brilliant…So, my point is, I’m still forming and shaping the album.”

For those disappointed by the delay, know that the wait may be worth it as the release should contain around 38 songs.

How Crazy Horse jump-started Neil Young’s Career

20130422-neil-x600-1366664493Andy Green of Rolling Stone has been writing about Neil Young a lot these days. This time he looks at the 1969 release of “Everybody Knows this is Nowhere.”

He travels down the history of Neil Young road that dates back to “The Rockets.”

Greene writes: After years when he’d labored over each and every song he recorded, Crazy Horse helped teach Neil the value of working very quickly. “In a single day we did  ‘Cinnamon Girl,’ ‘Down By The River’ and ‘Cowgirl In The Sand,'” bassist Billy
Talbot told Rolling Stone in 1979. “There wasn’t much need to discuss  it.”

He lists EKTN as one of the top 500 albums of all times.

The guys in Crazy Horse didn’t know what kind of future they had, but the songs  they cut with Neil were finally getting a huge audience. Slowly, Everybody  This Is Nowhere started to climb the charts, eventually reaching Number 34.
“Cinnamon Girl” was finally released as a single in April of 1970 and many radio  stations put it into heavy rotation.

The little white puppy on the album cover might show up in Neil’s new car/dog-theme book he said he’s been working on.

“It’s going to fuckin’ stun people.”

csny-306-1366054433-jpg_212240The above quote came from Graham Nash, and he’s talking about the  release of a live CSN&Y album from their 1974 reunion tour.

Tentative release date is Aug. 27.

Andy Greene from the Rolling Stone writes:

They have yet to settle on a title. “I want to call it What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” says Crosby. “I’m going to dig my heels and seriously fight for that. You can’t hear that without laughing your head off. It’s important to look at yourselves with a sense of humor in retrospect and realize what gigantic egos we had and what idiots we were. But I think it’s a great title. If I don’t get it, I’ll threaten to quit the band – at which point I’ll be reminded that there’s no band to quit!”

The 1974 tour wrapped at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 14th. They filmed that night and at least one other, but don’t expect to see any video footage in this package. “I don’t think Neil’s gonna go for that,” says Crosby. “He doesn’t like the way he looked. He doesn’t like his haircut on that tour.”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young haven’t toured in seven years. “What do we do after this live album comes out?” asks Nash. “Do we just let it lie there and fucking die, or do we do limited promotion? That’s not cowardly, but that’s not the way to do it. In my perfect world – and I’m only talking about what I would do – I would delay the release of this until the spring of 2014. I would ask David and Stephen and Neil to take three months off their busy lives and go out on tour to promote this record.”

Crosby&Nash: Another Stoney Evening

David Crosby and Graham Nash have launched their own record label, Blue
Castle Records, with the first-ever digital edition of the live album

Another Stoney Evening

recorded forty years ago, in 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in
Los Angeles.

“This album represents the very beginning of our musical relationship as
a duo,” says Nash. “Whatever David and I do well together, it’s
wonderful that we’re still doing it well. For the upcoming tour, with a
rock ‘n roll band, we’ve gotten fantastic advance response. It’s
exciting to be bringing this great new show to people.”
