CSN: CSN Box-Set

Mat Snow, Q, February 1992

DAVID CROSBY, STEPHEN STILLS AND Graham Nash: respectively refugees from The Byrds (fired by Roger McGuinn), Buffalo Springfield (broke up) and Manchester's very own Hollies (who by '66 were far too square for the Marrakesh-bound Nash: "A man is liable to go insane, especially being the only one who was smoking grass at the time."). One cannot help but feel ambiguous about the hippy harmony trio that in 1969 took the rock world not so much by storm as by breeze.
