Nash and Crosby Were Friends Before They Became Bandmates

Graham Nash recently appeared on the Ultimate Classic Rock Nights radio show and he shared to Uncle Joe Benson about getting together with David Crosby. He recalled, “I said to David, ‘Where are you staying?’ He said, ‘It’s funny – I’m staying at this hotel in London called the White House. But it’s full of blue-haired ladies and old people.’ I said, ‘Hey, you know what? Check out, come and stay with me in my apartment.’ So David and I formed a very deep friendship.”

He added, “He played me songs like ‘Deja Vu.’ I never heard anything like that in my life. He played me ‘Guinevere.’ He played me ‘Long Time Gone.’ I’m going, ‘Wow, this is very cool, this!’”

When he returned to Los Angeles, he reached out to Crosby again and that’s when he met Stephen Stills. “David says to me one night, ‘Come on, get in the car. I want you to meet somebody,’I go, ‘Oh, God, here we go again.’ We drive up to Mulholland, Peter Tork’s house, open the door, and here’s this kid pounding the hell out of the piano, playing boogie-woogie fast rock ’n’ roll. It was great. It was Stephen Stills. That’s how I met Stephen.”

Crosby, Stills & Nash were inducted as a group into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and all three of them were also inducted as part of other bands.
