Crosby, Stills & Nash Open Up to CBS SUNDAY MORNING
One of the biggest and most revered rock albums of the early 1970s is back, and it still sounds brand new in 2021. With the new 50th anniversary edition of the instantly classic Deja Vu album already rocking the Billboard charts, Stephen Stills, David Crosby and Graham Nash sat down with Anthony Mason for a frank and candid conversation CBS Sunday Morning over the weekend.
"There's masterpieces in there. Ain't a dog in the bunch!," Stills exclaimed when asked how it feels to cue up the record today. "Deja Vu was intense, tragic in many ways," added Nash. "But a really decent album."
Conspicuously absent from the interview was Neil Young, which the rest the of band shrugged off as par for the course. "Neil, when he joins the band doesn't really join the band," Crosby cracked. "He made his tracks outside by himself and brought them. And we sang on 'em. Which is kind of snotty. But, they were good!"
Nash, who was dead set against adding Young, asked the guitarist point blank why he should be let into the group over a breakfast meeting: "He looked at me and he said, 'Have you ever heard me and Stephen play guitar together?' I went, 'Yeah, I have.' He was in the band from that moment on."
