Last week, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash came by the Rolling Stone offices to have lunch, chat about their new film CSNY: Dj Vu talk about their past and current musical relationships.
For more on CSN -- including news on their new album -- check out the Smoking Section in the new issue of Rolling Stone, on newsstands tomorrow.
On Their Current Relationship
Nash: We have what marriages don't have. It's called music. We've always realized that music is by far the most important part of our relationship. No matter how we feel about each other, about the two of us, about the three of us, about the four of us, it's the music. And we always try to focus on keeping that as pure as we can.
Crosby: But we've been doing better at it than we used to.
Nash: The things that used to piss us off a few years ago are meaningless.
Crosby: Hopefully it's because you get a little smarter as you get older. You know, we try to treat each other a little better, be a little more respectful, be a little more friendly. And most especially not to rag on each other, and give each other stink eye.
Crosby: Not to sing his praises too much but one of the main people who told me Stop giving Stephen stink eye and be his buddy and it'll work about a hundred times as well" is Neil. He understands Stephen pretty well.
Stills: I mean we laugh at each other all the time. We needed to take that to the stage, and we started doing that.
Nash: Then once people realize that we're feeling comfortable with each other, it gives them license to feel more comfortable. I mean our fans already love us obviously. But when they see us comfortable with each other, it releases something in them that they don't have to wonder if we're going to start fighting or we're going to start stabbing each other in the back.
