Thirty years after they debuted in front of 500,000 people at the original Woodstock, Crosby, Stills, and Nash are older, wiser, and more amiable than ever. And that’s after a very tumultuous, druggy, emotionally-challenged journey.

The veteran folk/rock combo emerged in 1969 from the ashes of three popular ’60s bands — David Crosby from The Byrds, Graham Nash from British Invasion group The Hollies, and Stills from folk-rock outfit Buffalo Springfield. After releasing their landmark 1969 self-titled debut, songwriter Neil Young (who played with Stills in Buffalo Springfield) joined the gang to record the equally impressive 1970 album, Déjà Vu.

Their string of radio hits include “Marrakesh Express,� “Suite: Judy Blue Eye,� “Ohio,� “Helpless,� “Our House,� “Teach Your Children,� “Wasted on the Way,� “Just a Song Before I Go,� and “Southern Cross.�

CS&N are currently finishing a new album for Columbia Records with Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin. This summer, Rhino Records will released Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos, a single-disc collection of rare and previously unheard demos reaching back to the group’s earliest days. The band’s current U.S. tour follows their recent induction into the New York City-based Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. The honor follows their 1997 induction into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
