Crosby Sets Terms For CSNY Reunion

Folk rock supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young have had an on again-off again relationship that’s nearly as famous as their music, their feuds stretching on for decades; in fact, Neil Young and Graham Nash aren’t on speaking terms with bandmate David Crosby as of 2018, though Young did say he wouldn’t quite rule out a reunion with Crosby after he walked back negative comments made about Young’s now-wife, Daryl Hannah.

Though it’s not likely that these four will ever hang out and reminisce about old times, it does look like the C in CSNY  is open to mending fences and staging a reunion in celebration for the 50th anniversary of the band’s debut record next year – but only under one condition.

In an interview with WFPK’s Kyle Meredith, David Crosby, 77, revealed that “…if Neil wanted to get together and do a CSNY thing, 50th, I would probably do that. I don’t think a CSN thing would be such a good idea, I think CSNY might be doable.”

This isn’t the first time David Crosby has posited the idea of a CSNY reunion. Early this year he outlined to Billboard exactly why the possibility of a CSNY reunion isn’t too far out of the realm of possibility and why the 60s rock legends feel their presence is needed once again:

“We don’t get along, and we haven’t gotten along for a while. They’re all mad at me. But they all dislike Donald Trump very much, the same way I do. We dislike him intensely because he’s a spoiled child who can’t do his job.

So a reunion is possible. We don’t like each other, but we like Trump a whole lot less.”

So knowing what we know – that at least 1/4 of CSNY is open to a reunion, if only just for the 50th anniversary of their debut record next year – is a reunion likely?

Only time (and Neil Young) will tell.
