The classic rock group Crosby, Stills and Nash was formed in
California in 1968 by former Hollies member Graham Nash (guitar), ex-Buffalo Springfield
member Stephen Stills (guitar/keyboards/bass) and former Byrds guitarist David Crosby. The
group released their self-titled debut album the following summer, adding
singer-songwriter Neil Young (also of Buffalo Springfield) shortly thereafter, just in
time to appear at Woodstock, Altamont, Big Sur and other stops on their support tour.
Crosby, Stills and Nash quickly became one of the most popular and influential American
rock bands, their vocal harmonies and varied style -- which ranged from folk to hard rock
-- won over fans and earned a Grammy for Best New Artist.
