For Stephen Stills, revisiting the past feels right

Crosby, Stills & NashStephen Stills was famous for spending endless hours in the recording studio, especially in the 1970s. All that work produced a bevy of albums in that decade — a half dozen solo albums, a pair of albums with his band, Manassas, and one studio LP each with Crosby, Stills & Nash and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
“Yeah, it was a crazy amount of time,” Stills recalled in a recent phone interview. “It was right up there with the Eagles. Some of it, it paid off, and some of it suffered for it. We were pretty blase because we had unlimited budgets and stuff like that.”
Stills has had reason to revisit those times of music making in the '70s lately. For one thing, he has done a good deal of touring with Crosby, Stills & Nash — including an extensive tour in 2012 and another run of dates happening this spring — which means playing a good number of songs recorded in the '70s by that group.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
