Inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997: David Crosby (vocals, guitar; born August 14, 1941), Graham Nash (vocals, guitar; born February 2, 1942), Stephen Stills (vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass; born January 3, 1945).
This tuneage was captured live at San Francisco's Warfield Theater in November, 1991:
"Helplessly Hoping" is a song from the first album by Crosby, Stills & Nash, released in 1969 on the Atlantic Records label. Written by Stephen Stills. The album itself peaked at #6 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart.
"Just a Song Before I Go" is a song from Crosby, Stills and Nash that appeared on the 1977 album CSN. It was also released as a single and made it to number seven on the Billboard singles charts and ended up being the band's highest climbing hit.
The song was written by Graham Nash about leaving loved ones behind before going on a concert tour. It was written in Hawaii in about 20 minutes at the piano while Nash and Leslie Morris were staying with a friend, waiting for the rain to stop before leaving the house. The opening line came from the question: "You've got half an hour, why don't you just write a song before you go?"
Crosby, Stills & Nash have remained America's longest-running experiment in vocal harmony and social relevance. The trio brought harmony to the forefront of popular music with their unique three-part vocal blend. A low-key supergroup, they emphasized singing and songwriting above all, and their example contributed to the evolution of the singer/songwriter movement in the Seventies. Born out of well-known groups that placed a premium on harmony, Crosby, Stills & Nash boasted impressive individual credentials before they joined forces in 1969. David Crosby sang and played rhythm guitar with the Byrds. Stephen Stills was a mainstay of Buffalo Springfield. Nash provided the high harmonies that helped make pop sensations of Britain's Hollies. Even with those estimable prior alliances, Crosby, Stills & Nash would become their pinnacle as musicians.
