It must have been awkward for Neil Young and Stephen Stills to have Buffalo Springfield inducted in the same year as Crosby, Stills and Nash. Young doesn't get mentioned for CSNY, but he has to play with Stills for the Buffalo Springfield acceptance. Strange situation.

Can't they be inducted twice?

Once as Crosby, Stills and Nash and once as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young?

Couldn't it just be:

"Crosby, Still and Nash (+ Young)"?

CSN is the parent group and Y was only there for three studio albums: "Deja Vu," "American Dream" and "Looking Forward." Young was on the compilation album "So Far" and the live "4 Way Street" but do we really need CSNY in the HoF because Young wasn't there all the time

I think Graham Nash deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award as well. As CSN's best songwriter, archivist of the band, and the fellow who kept them together-- not to mention background vocals for other artists, and some great photography to boot -- there's been no stopping him.

He'll get his right after Peter Gabriel ;-)

I don't care what anyone says, there should be a page for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young on Future Rock Legends. There is a Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship, Parliament-Funkadelic, and Joy Division/New Order sort of thing going on here.

Crosby, Stills & Nash debuted in 1969.

1969 Crosby, Stills & Nash

“Alaskan Express”, my version of Crosby, Stills and Nash’s “Marrakesh Express”


Looking at the world through the sunshine in your eyes
Traveling the boat through foggy Alaskan skies
Whales and bears and eagles call
American flags wall to wall
Canadian ladies eight-foot tall in red

Sweeping thoughts from the corners of my brain
Had to get away from the rain
Hope the days that push ahead
Take us back to where they’ve led
Listen to what’s been said to you

Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
They’re taking me to Alaska
All aboard the boat, all aboard the boat

I’ve been saving my money just to take you there
I smell the salmon in your hair

Take the boat from Ketchikan going north
Blowing smoke from propellers going forth
Sea winds hang in the air
Ravens flying in the square
Native clothes we can wear at home
Well, let us hear you now

Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
They’re taking me to Alaska

Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
Don’t you know we’re riding on the Alaskan Express
They’re taking me to Alaska
All aboard the boat, all aboard the boat
All aboard

In the entire CSN catalog there are only two occurrences where the three songwriters are represented in the correct order according to album track sequence. The first was on their debut album from 1969, track 3-5:

Guinevere (David Crosby)
You Don't Have To Cry (Stephen Stills)
Pre-Road Downs (Graham Nash)

The other time this happened was on their 1977 "CSN" album, tracks 1-3:

Shadow Captain (David Crosby/Craig Doerge)
See The Changes (Stephen Stills)
Carried Away (Graham Nash)

I was remiss in my previous post. On "After The Storm" the group's final album for Atlantic Records released in 1994, there are two instances where the three songwriters are represented in the correct order. Tracks 5-7:

Til It Shines (David Crosby)
It Won't Go Away (Stephen Stills)
These Empty Days (Graham Nash)

And Tracks 9-11:

Street to Lean On (David Crosby)
Bad Boyz (Stephen Stills)
After The Storm (Graham Nash)
