People like Beck and Shawn Colvin are some of the people I listen to lately.
People like us probably didn't have any real answers. But at least we brought up the questions.
I don't have to ask anyone's permission to do anything. It's nice not have to get decisions out of three, sometimes four people, which can be like pulling teeth. So the amount of control that I have over what I'm doing is better for me as a solo artist.
It is a little off-putting to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and then be charged to go there.
All the signs were right. And when I mean all the sings were right, the only signs that we care about when we start a project of making a record is, do we have the songs - it's that simple.
I wasnt thinking of the longevity of any of my songs, but I am extremely pleased with the lasting effect.
If I read or listened to critics of our music. I'd have been discouraged a long time ago.
I'm trying to communicate here. I'm a communicator, I like to communicate, and if a million people buy it then we've touched a million people, if only 10 people buy it, then we've only touched 10, and that's important, because I'm satisfied with only 10. But, I love a million.
There's never really been any serious discussion amongst me David and Stephen about what we do with our harmonies. It just seems to be a very natural thing to do, and I think it's also an unspoken thing, too. It's not like we actually sit down and plan what we're going to do. We just do each song th
It's not hard to remain optimistic, because I just have to remember and look in the faces of my children, and I realize I have to fight and I have to speak out and do the best I can to make this a better place for them.
When I was born in 1942, World War II was still going. And I began to realize when I became a young adult that if we don't teach our kids a better way of relating to their fellow human beings, the very future of humanity on the planet is in jeopardy.
Martin guitars have now brought out, you know, on a more traditional level, the Stephen Stills' model of Martin guitars. It's beautiful. I just went inside. I bought one immediately.
I don't understand why anyone would collect my work. Please understand... it's like writing Our House. It took me an hour, it was 30 years ago, get over it! But people say, No, no, it changed my life, and I don't understand that. I can't take that seriously as a producer of what I consider to be art

I still have an insane drive to create and express myself, and it'll never stop because I don't know how to stop it.
There is a great correlation between music and images. Graham Nas
This digital world is completely fascinating to me. Graham Nas
Being in a different band always brings great musical experiences to be able to draw on.
We want to get this good music to as many people as possible because I think it heals, it soothes, I think music is incredibly important, especially in today's chaos.
We seem to somewhat be behind an eight ball, and what I mean by that is we're constantly waiting for a call from Neil as to whether he wants to do CSNY.
I'm curious about life, period.
We can't forget what happened on May 4th, 1970, when four students gave up their lives because they had the American constitutional right of peaceful protest. They gave up their lives. And to sing that song in that spot on that anniversary was very emotional for us.
We are excited about the music, past and present and future, and are really looking forward to playing.
There really is a kind of insane beauty around us all the time. It's just a question of learning to slow down, take a deep breath and meet the moment.
Just with the basic one guitar, one piano and one vocal and an audience, I think that the intimacy comes through more. People feel much more connected to the song because there's nothing in the way, and I actually enjoy doing that.
With Crosby, Stills and Nash and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young...we're very strong individuals, and we want our lives to be led the way we want them to.
The Hollies, after I left in 1968, had the audacity, the gall, to have three number one records after I left. Thanks a lot, guys.
I only do solo albums when songs are screaming at me to be let out of my mind.
The relationship with Atlantic Records was always a personal one. Our friend and mentor, Ahmet Ertegun, was our main contact at Atlantic and our relationship was based on mutual respect. He is a fine musician, singer and producer.
There are always new things to experience, internalize then write about. This process is ongoing with me. It never stops. The opportunity to reach new audiences with all of the music that we have made is thrilling.
