Graham Nash Says Crosby, Stills & Nash Are Done After Two-Year Feud With David Crosby

Graham Nash has told a Dutch magazine that, most likely, Crosby, Stills and Nash are done.

There has been tension in the group for years but mainly between Neil Young and the other members; but it was rare to hear about conflict among the core trio but, according to Nash in the magazine Lust For Life, he and David Crosby haven't been getting along for two years.

Translated from the Dutch original, "It's the first time I've said this out loud but this is the way it is. You asked me if there is more CSN? Well, my answer is no and that is very sad because we were pretty good but I'm currently not fond of David Crosby. He treated me horrible the last two years. Really, really awful.

"I've been there for him for forty five years to save his fucking ass but he treats me like dirt. You can't do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you're coming around but if you keep going and I keep getting nasty e-mails, then I'm done. Fuck you."

He went on to say "David has ripped the heart out of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young."

Of course, the addition (and subtraction) of Neil Young refers back to an incident late last year when Crosby called Young's new girlfriend, Daryl Hannah, a "purely poisonous predator" with Young saying that he would never tour with CSN again.

The split between Crosby and Nash is even more surprising as, not only had they recorded eight studio albums together in CSN but also four duo albums, Graham Nash David Crosby (1972 / #4), Wind on the Water (1975 / #6), Whistling Down the Wire (1976 / #26) and Crosby & Nash (2014 / #142).

Why doesn't he ever learn? How could he treat Graham so poorly, someone who has stood by his side through life and almost death. I love Crosby's music but he must be really out of control this time. Maybe now there can be a Stills, Nash, Young band who could make some truly amazing music.

Crosby should now and forever thank his lucky stars he is still alive. Also, they repaired bridges before when David went off the deep end in the earlier years. C'mon boys. Bury the hatchets and break out the axes. You owe it to each other and your fans. Get off your high horses and work it out. This is too important. You've com way too far to let this burn. Do it for Joni.

These musicians haven't been relevant for decades. Their last good album was "CSN" in 1976. Just give us more vault material from the good ol' days. I've avidly collected their music, but I'm not broken up by the end of the group. They should have called it quits long ago and left the public with good memories.
