CSNY Delivers Message

There isn't a candidate, political group, or grass-roots cause attached to the current Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young tour -- a reminder that once upon a time protest music didn't require an organizing principle. Songs like ``For What It's Worth" and ``Ohio" were mainstream radio fare. Topical tunes weren't career-threatening novelties.


Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young know all about it. That was the situation in the late '60s and the early '70s, when the well-pedigreed quartet reigned as one of rock's most celebrated supergroups. Sadly, it's also the situation now, which has led CSNY to re-embrace its role as creators of thoughtful and passionate protest music on its Freedom of Speech '06 tour, which stopped Thursday night before a crowd of about 13,000 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Review of Crosby, Stills & Nash - 29 July 2008: New York, Central Park Summer Stage

A balmy Tuesday night in New York’s Central Park was the near perfect setting to take in the sonorous melodies and counterculture nostalgia of Crosby, Stills & Nash. Playing in their 40th year together, the trio (this time sans the erratic Neil Young) serenaded the crowd with the more equanimous side of their repertoire during the first set. Breezy and reminiscent, “Marrakesh Express” instantly entranced the audience with patchouli-laden thoughts of seminal rock festivals.
