Crosby, Stills and Nash Over?

Crosby, Stills and Nash circa 2012 (via their Facebook page)

One of the first of the so-called supergroups, who have spent well over four decades together – and famously apart – are now on the outs. We’re talking about Crosby, Stills and Nash. And if what Graham Nash – who has often played the role of peacemaker for the classic rock band’s members – reportedly has said to a Dutch magazine, this may finally be it.

The publication, Lust For Life, quotes Nash as saying he is still on good terms with Stephen Stills (and Neil Young) and that his only issues are with David Crosby. The magazine is written in Dutch; the following is a rough translation: The two have fought on stage, reveals the 74-year-old singer. “Forty-five years I have been there for him to save his fucking ass, but he treated me like sh*t. When it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I’m done. You cannot do that with me. Perhaps for a day as long as I think you can back to your senses.”

More: “It is the first time that I have this to say out loud. But that is the way it is. You asked me whether there are more of CSN? Well, my answer is no.”

A tip of the cap to U.K. based Classic Rock magazine which shared this news today (March 6th).

Interestingly, the band’s Facebook page has items about each of them today. The individual members are all very active at the moment with solo projects. Stills has recorded a new album with his side band, The Rides, and will be touring the U.S. this spring. (Read our story here.) Nash has recorded a new solo album – only his second in 30 years – and resumes touring next month. Crosby is currently on a solo acoustic tour.

The trio last toured together in September and October 2015 when they did 20 dates in the U.K. and Europe.

Update (March 13): Crosby, who regularly responds to his fans on all manner of topics via Twitter, tweaked Nash with a RT.

Earlier, when asked about plans for new a new album, Crosby tweeted “this year.”

    I have always thought David Crosby was a jerk. When they first started and were billed as a “Super Group” I thought what’s so super about David Crosby? He was a hanger on with the Byrds never did as much as Graham or Stephen in CSN never had a solo career . Couldn’t get along with Neil. If there was maybe a Nash,Stills, Young and how about Timothy B Schmit since he took Crosby’s place on ” Daylight Again” while Crosby couldn’t make it

      Allow me to respond.

      Jerk/not jerk irrelevant unless you personally know the guy.

      David Crosby had, and still mostly has, a high, pure, beautiful, signature voice, one of the most distinctive in pop music. The glory of that vocal sound is its top, and the top is Mr. David Crosby, who brings his beautiful sound plus the ability to harmonize perfectly with two and sometimes three others to the very heart and foundation of CSNY and CSN,

      CSN and CSNY with David on the top is essential – band wouldn’t sound like itself without him.

      Key member, man…essential and vital.

      No C, no CSN or CSNY.
