4WaySite – the end?
2016 | October 23 | 4waysite.com
For 20 years I have been working on 4WaySite, sharing Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young news with CSNY fans around the world. I always did it with full commitment, but as many of you may have noticed, I am no longer updating the content on the site. This has to do with other commitments in my life. Since I started a new career as a wedding photographer, I have been achieving good results, but it is time consuming.
So is this the end of 4WaySite? Well, it is the end of my contributions; and the domain name 4waysite.com will expire in September 2017.
Having said that, I am now looking for a successor who wants 4waysite.com to Carry On and who will take over the domain name. That person must be a dedicated CSNY fan and someone who is familiar with building websites (conversant with WordPress, for example).
Please contact me privately through thestijg[at]gmail.com if you are that person!
Thanks everyone, for all of your support over the years.

Graham Nash Says Crosby, Stills & Nash Are Done
2016 | March 4 | hetparool.nl
This news comes from the Dutch newspaper called Het Parool.
Graham Nash says his two-year fight with David Crosby has brought Crosby, Stills And Nash to an end.
And he’s accused Crosby of treating him like dirt, after he previously opened a rift with Neil Young.
Young announced in October that he’d have no more to do with his CSNY colleagues, leading Crosby to comment: “That’s like saying there are mountains in Tibet. We know, Neil. We already knew.”
He then admitted Young was “very angry” with him, probably for calling his girlfriend Darryl Hannah a “purely poisonous predator” – although he later apologised.
Nash said in November that he still hoped the band had a future. Now he tells Lust For Life: “You asked me if there’s more of CSN? My answer is ‘no,’ and that’s very sad, because we’re pretty good.
“But I don’t like David Crosby right now. He’s been awful to me these last two years, just fucking awful. I’ve been there and saved his fucking ass for 45 years – and he treated me like shit.
“You can’t do that to me. You can do it for a day or so, until I think you’re going to come round. But when it goes on longer, and I keep getting nasty emails from him, I’m done. Fuck you.”
Nash says he and Crosby had a physical altercation on stage while they last year, adding: “David single-handedly tore the heart out of CSNY and CSN.”
Nash will launch solo album This Path Tonight on April 15. Crosby is currently touring North America. Stephen Stills last month confirmed the second album from his blues supergroup The Rides, while Young launches a DVD next month, and he’s working on his 37th album.

Neil Young Nearly Finished New Album
2016 | March 2 | rollingstone.com
Neil Young is nearly finished with his 37th album as a solo artist, working in a Malibu studio with his newest collaborators, Promise of the Real. "I'm very happy with what I'm doing," Young told Rolling Stone this week. "I don't know what its place is in the world, but I like it."
The album is his second studio project with the band fronted by Micah and Lukas Nelson, sons of Willie. Last year's The Monsanto Years was an electrified protest album that reached Number 21 on the Billboard Top 200. Young called the making of the new album "a very rewarding process." It will be released in June.
"I feel really good and amped and energized. And I feel like I'm doing something that I've never done before," Young said. "It's not just music. It's a soundscape. It's kind of like flying around listening to things with your eyes closed."
"Effortless" is how Young described his ongoing work with Promise of the Real, during an onstage interview with Cameron Crowe Monday in Los Angeles following a screening of his 1982 film Human Highway. At a reception with friends and colleagues immediately following the screening, Young told Rolling Stone the new recordings were both a continuation of what began with The Monsanto Years and a new creative path.
"In critical other ways, it's like nothing that I've done," Young said. "It's more like a giant radio show. It has no stops. The songs are too long for iTunes, thank God, so they won't be on iTunes. I'm making it available in the formats that can handle it.
"It's like a live show, but it's not like a live show. Imagine it's a live show where the audience is full of every living thing on earth — all of the animals and insects and amphibians and birds and everybody — we're all represented. And also they overtake the music once in a while and play the instruments. It's not conventional ... but it is based on live performance."
While young didn't describe the lyrical content, current events have again been on his mind. In the past, he's been inspired to write biting topical music from "Ohio" to Living With War (including the Bush-era anthem "Let's Impeach the President") and Monsanto.
During the onstage interview, Young got a laugh by describing his new Donald Trump impression. He took off his black hat with a sour look and put his chin in the air. "We were at a party the other night and I took my hat off — I have a big bald spot now ... My lovely girlfriend was making my hair look like Donald Trump's," Young told the audience. "It was very entertaining and nobody filmed it, thank God."
Later, Young said, "What's going on these days is very much like Human Highway. Everybody's not paying attention to what's going on and they're just living their own lives — maybe talking about [the election] as something to talk about. I support Bernie Sanders but I'm Canadian."
He added, "I vote with my mouth. That's my way."
