This trio was formed in the late 1960s after two of them left their bands The Hollies and The Byrds and Buffalo Springfield broke up. Graham Nash, David Crosby and Stephen Stills met in 1968 in California. They started jamming together and found they had a kind of vocal harmony that does not come around every day. Starting to play under their surnames (chosen so that if one of them left the band could continue on), Crosby, Stills and Nash recorded an album in 1969 and a string of hits followed. Stephen Stills played most of the instruments and the three traded lead vocal duties.
Like many supergroups, Crosby, Stills and Nash faced many creative differences and fights along the way. For a while they were joined by Neil Young and became Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Neil Young then left, they all recorded solo albums, and then Crosby and Nash recorded as a duo. The state of the band was always in flux.
When they put their egos and creative differences aside they are a band that sounds like no other. Their brand of folksy rock music has been loved by millions for decades. Songs like "Teach Your Children" and "Our House" have made their marks on the music world. After 30 years of making music together they were inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
Though they are all in their 60s now it is a rare thing to see a group who performed at the famed Woodstock Festival play live today. Relive the good old days of folk rock with this supergroup.
