Crosby, Stills & Nash
Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) is the rock and folk group formed of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Nash, collectively known as Crosby, Stills and Nash.
David Crosby had come from the band The Byrds and met Graham Nash whilst he was touring, and Graham Nash quit his band (The Hollies) to join him and Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield ) to form Crosby, Stills and Nash. A fourth member, Neil Young also joined Crosby, Stills and Nash on keyboards and the quartet first performed together at the much loved Woodstock festival. Crosby,
Stills and Nash and Young became a hit, with their album Déjà Vu topping the charts, and contained the hit singles "Our House", "Teach Your Children" and "Woodstock". During 1970-71 Crosby, Stills and Nash had massive success individually with their own albums: After the Gold Rush, Stephen Stills, If I Could Only Remember My Name – all which reached the top 15 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Later, in the ‘70s Crosby, Stills and Nash did not produce any music because of a number rifts between the band members which eventually resulted in the quartet returning to a trio. The result was a success and gave the band the winning combination for their album CSN, and the album would have reached #1 had it not been competing with the likes of mega rock group Fleetwood Mac.
Further album success with Live It Up (CSN) (1990), After the Storm (CSN) (1994) and Looking Forward (CSNY) (1999) enabled Crosby, Stills and Nash to enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
