Crosby, Stills & Nash Hit the Road this Fall
Crosby, Stills and Nash has been on the road for nearly two months on a tour that was already scheduled to run into the fall, and now the band have added even more dates to the roster.
The dates will now run though October 16-17, when the trio will hold a two-night stand at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The band will play tonight in Highland Park, Illinois, and other cities on the tour include Kansas City, Mo.; Salt Lake City; Boise; Eugene, Ore.; San Francisco and Modesto, Calif.
Earlier this month, the group released their first live video in more than 20 years. CSN 2012 is a live DVD and CD packages that includes new songs as well as interviews with members of the band.
In other CSN news, the band had recently been in the studio with legendary producer Rick Rubin to record a new album of covers called Songs We Wish We’d Written. But Graham Nash said in a recent interview with Music Radar that the sessions were, “not a great experience” and have been scrapped.
“After almost 50 years of making records, we think we know what we’re doing, so it’s very hard to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do,” Nash said in the interview. “You can suggest anything you want, but you can’t tell us what to record.”
Nash said that all of the songs that were recorded were unusable because the heart “wasn’t there.” The group subsequently has rerecorded versions of “Close Your Eyes,” “Behind Blue Eyes” and “Ruby Tuesday,” all of which they had originally recorded with Rubin.
“We felt like we had this guy who was telling us what to do all the time,” Nash continued. “I mean, who the f**k is Rick Rubin? I know he’s sold millions of records, but who the f**k is he to tell Crosby, Stills and Nash what to do?”
