Do any classic-rock naked emperors get more of a free pass from these people than CSN? Fey white harmonies that would embarrass a barbershop quartet; obnoxious songs about how hard/rewarding/transcendent (take your pick) it is to be a hippie rock star or one of his various "ladies"; one OK album that was rescued from the shit pile by Neil Young; and three solo careers that practically created punk rock by themselves via their sheer inertia and smugness.

Crosby’s my favourite of the Law Firm simply because Young and Nash excel at treating their devoted spouses like out-of-date food, tossing them out for newer models. And all of them, especially Stills stopped being good at anything about 40 years ago.
Crosby smoked so much crack that he learnt how to drive with his knees so he didn’t have to stop hitting the pipe. And somehow he’s turned out to be the most stable and forward-looking one of them all.
Between Clark and The Style Council, I'd like to join the Defense Force, Bradman.
In other news SHiTes are debating whether or not If I Could Only Remember My Name is "overhyped" these days. I try to understand the bubble these weirdos live in, but they constantly surprise me. Other than the Pope, who really talks about this album other than SHiTes?
Since I'm on record as saying I like the damn thing, please don't think I'm saying it is somehow "underrated". It is the musical tipping point in which the excesses of the late sixties bloomed into the excesses of the seventies. It deserves to dissipate into the ether like so much pot smoke.
Without Young in the mix, Simon & Garfunkel rocked harder. And yet, inexplicably I very much like If I Could Only Remember My Name. But I consider it a lapse in taste on my part.
I agree with most of the slamming of Croz here, but If I Could Only Remember My Name is a favorite. My inner Shite loves to get high and play the surround mix or a clean vinyl copy. I go all Laurel Canyon and stuff.
I'm working on a very special project. You're gonna love it! - CANCELLED!
