David Crosby, Steven Stills, and Graham Nash, each musicians from separate and notable groups, came together in 1968. They formed their own supergroup named after themselves, Crosby, Stills and Nash, or CSN. The trio’s well-regarded folk rock music featuring sophisticated vocal harmonies has earned each member not one, but two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 1969, the trio released their first album, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, which became an instant success, yielding two Top 40 hit singles.
Crosby, Stills, and Nash are not only known and loved for their music, but also for their political activism in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Two songs were written in response to the violence against Vietnam War protestors, called “Chicago” and “Ohio,” the latter being viewed as the greatest musical statement made regarding the war at that time.
Crosby, Stills, and Nash are currently on tour through October to promote their newest album, CSN 2012.
