Abstract:

The first ever biography focused on the formative and highly influential early years of "rock's first supergroup" (Rolling Stone) Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young--when they were the most successful, influential, and politically potent band in America--in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock and the formation of the band itself.

"The first-ever biography focused on the formative and highly influential early years of rock's first supergroup, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young--in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock and the founding of the band itself. The original supergroup of folk rock David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash released their first album, Crosby Stills & Nash, in May 1969. By the time they got to Woodstock only a few months later, they had added Neil Young and went on to channel in their music all the radical anger, romantic idealism, and generational angst of their time. They had each already made their marks in huge bands (the Hollies, Buffalo Springfield, the Byrds), but together their harmonies were transcendent. Music journalist Peter Doggett first met the band twenty-five years ago and has had a lifelong love of their music. His interviews with the musicians and many of their closest friends and fellow rock stars, as well as access to CSNY's archive, provide new insights into their incredible catalog, from their delicate acoustic confessionals like 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' and 'Guinnevere' to raucous counterculture anthems 'Ohio' and 'Woodstock' to classics discovered by every new generation like 'Teach Your Children' and 'Our House.' Doggett also uncovers plenty of new stories and perspectives on the four tenacious and volatile songwriters' infamously reckless, hedonistic, and often combative lifestyles that led to their continuous breakups and behaviors extreme even by rock star standards. CSNY chronicles these iconic musicians and the movement they came to represent, concentrating on their prime as a collective unit and a cultural force: the years between 1969, when the Woodstock music festival telegraphed their arrival to the world, and 1974, when their archenemy Richard Nixon was driven from office and the band (to quote Graham Nash himself) 'lost it on the highway.' CSNY is a quintessential and definitive account of one of the biggest bands of the Woodstock generation."--Dust jacket.
