David Crosby Clarifies Why A CSNY Reunion Is Impossible
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Byrds co-founding member, David Crosby, responded to one of the tweets of his followers and revealed whether there is any chance of a CSNY reunion.
You might know that David Crosby is the founder of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash & Young and he was one of the most popular musicians of the ’70s. After parting ways with the Byrds, he met with Stephen Stills, and the duo was joined by Graham Nash to form a band. After releasing their self-titled debut album in 1969, Crosby won the Grammy Award for ‘Best New Artist.’
Although Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young members were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, excluding Neil Young, in 1997, the band has not released anything new since 1999’s ‘Looking Forward.’ Back in 2017, Crosby admitted that he has not been talking with Graham Nash and Neil Young for years, adding that he does not rule out the possible reunion.
Recently, David responded to one of his followers and stated that a CSNY reunion will never happen. The co-founding member stated that the band members haven’t been close to each other for years and bid farewell to the band by saying ‘let it rest in peace.’
A follower of Crosby wrote this:
“To be honest, I decided a few years ago that a CSNY reunion would likely be a disappointment – compared to David Crosby’s current work with the shy trails and lighthouse bands.”
Crosby responded saying:
“If we liked each other and we were all capable we could still blow your mind. But they don’t and we aren’t. So I say let it Rest in Peace. We did good work and I am justifiably proud of it but it’s history now.”
