Did he have to pay for another liver?

It still amazes me that hes still alive and still working.

CSN&Y is like the longest, on-going fark-up of a band in Rock history.  They tower over the Replacements and Big Star.

As a point of order, "Teach Your Children" was a Graham Nash song.

That's because Crosby is the worst songwriter of the four.  What's he written that didn't completely suck? "Triad"?

First Cosby. Now Crosby. Who's next?

I'm still shocked Melissa Ethridge picked David to father her child. Why not Nash? Did she want an ugly kid on purpose?

Wooden Ships (with Paul Kantner), Guinnevere, Long Time Gone, Deja Vu, In My Dreams for a few. Even so, he might not be the songsmith that Nash and Stills are, but his voice more than makes up for it -- best of the three (four).

I'll give you "Wooden Ships" but the rest of Crosby's songs make me want to choke him.  Especially his faux English Renaissance numbers.

Crosby does have a great voice even today, but he's always the worst songwriter in the room, even when he was in the Byrds.

And really, you're kinda doomed to failure when you're in a band (frequently) with Neil Young, who can't sing, but who knows how to write a tune.

I loved Emerson, Lake, Wakeman, Bruford and Young.

He's had more fake death rumors than Ace Frehley and Abe Vigoda combined.

I think the problem was that he couldn't remember his name.

Forget it, Dave. You're not Canadian enough to put out new material at your age.

But he's found a child he put up for adoption in 1962! That's SOOOO Joni Mitchell!

Guinnevere is a gorgeous song.

Are we sure he is? Could be a Tupac-hologram situation.

Let me guess: a bunch of songs about living the simple life in the country and going barefoot a lot.

No, actually, they're all about impeaching Obama. And he wants people like you to join his movement.

He didn't put the kid up for adoption. He found him when he cleaned all the empties off the floor.

It all came back to him about 20 years ago

I saw him play Cowboy Movie in the early '90s.  He joked that he didn't play it much way back when because he couldn't remember the lyrics.

I still think it was sad when his character got killed by that talking tar pit on ST:TNG.

I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you there, even though I understand where you are coming from. Neil is a great singer, he's just not conventional. It's like a food or drink that takes a few times before you acquire a taste for it, but after you do, it's the best tasting shiat in the world.

I thought he was dead, had to look it up on wiki to make sure.  I guess he is still alive, or I entered an alternative universe and failed to notice it.

rev. dave: I thought he was dead, had to look it up on wiki to make sure.  I guess he is still alive, or I entered an alternative universe and failed to notice it.


I have the same thing with John Popper.  I would have bet my life savings that he had died in the late '90s and then a few years ago he came up in the news because he was sick or lost a lot of weight or something.  I looked and looked for evidence that I was right- that he'd died but I was wrong.  He did, however, go through some sort of weird post-apocalyptic nightmare thing in 2007: http://www.foxnews.com/story/2007/03/08/blues-traveler-frontman-john- p opper-arrested-after-cops-find-weapons-cache/

That's the only song I liked on the album. Oh well, I'm always up for a revisiting. Especially with all the extra tracks that are on re-releases.

Phil Collins paid for the transplant, as well as Croz's IRS bill. Nice guy

i had the incredible honor of being able to take my dad to see csn ON THE FRONT FRIGGIN ROW about 1.5 years ago (thanks to winning tix on the radio).

it was a belated bday gift for my awesome old man, who, despite going to a fair amount of concerts back in the day, never got to see csn (nor y). i actually won the tix 2 days prior to his bday, so i called him up to wish him a happy bday, and casually said "hey i was just wondering...did you ever get to see csn?" "no, that's one i never got around to". "oh ok, well as a bday gift you get to see them with me on the front row in a few months"

best bday gift ever!
