David Crosby, from the Byrds, Stephen Stills, from Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash, from the Hollies got together in the late 60's to form CSN. In 1969 they released their first album which was self titled and a fine album it is, still holding up well after all these years. I think it was 1970 when they added Neil Young after being turned down by Steve Winwood because of contractual problems. Though Neil was a great fit for the band he wanted to do his own stuff with his band Crazy Horse (who he still works with).CSN for only the second time playing a gig played what turned out to be a historical event, Woodstock. On May 4th 1970 the shit hit the fan when then governor of Ohio James Rhodes ordered the National Guard troops to Kent State to calm down protesters of the that terrible conflict called Viet Nam. Four students, who had nothing to do with the protest, were shot and killed. Weeks later Neil Young wrote and released what I considered to be the anthem of a generation, Ohio. "Tin soldiers and Nixon coming, 4 dead in Ohio". I just happen to be from Ohio so my anger about the war was just fueled by the killing of those students. To this day when I hear that song I get a heavy feeling in my heart. As a final footnote the Crosby and Nash show (ticket and photo shown) in Dayton Ohio at the U.of D. Arena proved to be one of my all time favorite shows. It was 1973 and we were free of Richard Nixon and for the first time ever without Neil Young the encore was Ohio. The arena blew up, everyone on their feet singing along. I'll never in my life forget the energy flowing through the crowd that night. Here are just a few of my memories of CSN, I've seen them many times in all different configurations and each and every time loved the show. Hope you enjoy the hub.  Peace!!

      I have quite a few of Crosby, Still, Nash and Young's MP3's that I like to listen to. I like your selection of pictures, and I enjoyed reading your article.

      Excellent band. I've written a hub about Neil Young myself. And I'm originally from Ohio, too.

      How could I ever forget, what memories we all share, music was our mainstay to feel, learn, thing, and be. Music played a huge role in who we are today. And, who young people of today, we heard about America and now they hear about murder. Thank you for this awesome hub, love it peace and thumbs up...
