He was the first person to be inducted twice in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the same night.

"Stephen is a genius," Neil Young says. "He began his work with Buffalo Springfield and produced one of their few hits, "For What It's Worth," which became one of standsout 1960s pop culture's most popular songs.

"Sit Down, I Love You," "Bluebird," and "Rock & Roll Woman were among the band's most popular songs.

The album, which had over four million copies, had outsold everything from the three members' previous bands: the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies.

Stephen Stills Career

Life and career

Neverthelesss, Furay, and Young were reunited in Los Angeles and formed the backbone of Buffalo Springfield. According to a meeting described in a new solo track "Round the Bend," Legend has it that Young's converted heardse and flagged him down. Buffalo Springfield performed a blend of folk, country, psychedelia, and rock. Both lead guitars of Stills and Young gave Buffalo Springfield a hard edge, and the two together gave the Buffalo Springfield a critical success. After Stills' topical song "For What It's Worth" became a top-ten hit, achieving number 7 on the US charts, the band's first record Buffalo Springfield (1966) sold well. Buffalo Springfield was instrumental in the formation of folk rock and country rock, according to Rolling Stone, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and other places. Bassist Bruce Palmer's demise in Buffalo Springfield after distrusting their leadership, as well as the detention and removal of him only aggravated the already tense links between the two groups, leading to his expulsion of the group members. Buffalo Springfield Again, a second album, was released in late 1967 and featured Stills songs "Bluebird" and "Rock And Roll Woman." The band split up for good in May 1968, but contractual obligations demanded the recording and release of a final studio album, Last Time Around. The album was mainly made up of tracks that had been laid down earlier this year. In 1967, a Stills song "Sit Down, I Think I Love You" was a minor hit for the Mojo Men.

Stills appeared on half of Al Kooper's Super Session album in 1968, including a recreation of Donovan's "Season Of The Witch" that received a lot of radio play on progressive FM radio stations. Mike Bloomfield had intended to perform on all of the album but had to cancel on the second day of recording. Despite being rated Gold in December 1970, therug was extremely popular and charted at number 12 on the US charts.

David Crosby, Byrds and Graham Nash of The Hollies, was recruited by Stills & Nash in late 1968. On the group's debut album, several of Stills' songs, including "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" and "You Don't Have To Cry," were inspired by his on-again off-again friendship with singer Judy Collins. The album debuted at number six on the US charts and was deemed quadruple platinum. The album's recordings were dominated by Stills. Crosby and Nash performed guitar on their own, while drummer Dallas Taylor appeared on four tracks and drummer Jim Gordon on a fifth. Stills performed all of the bass, organ, and lead guitar parts, as well as acoustic guitar on his own songs. "When I say that one was my baby and I had the tracks in my head," Stills said.

The band invited Neil Young to join them on their first tour and second album, naming the group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young). The first tour started in August 1969 and ended in January 1970. They recorded their album Déjà Vu at the time and announced it in March 1970. During the recording, the musicians argued often, particularly Young and Stills, who both fought for power. With Neil Young, the singers were still on the album, "Carry On" and "4+20" and "Everybody I Love You." He also brought his own cover of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" for the band. The album debuted at number one on the US charts and was certified 7 times platinum, with over 8 million copies sold. Following the Kent State massacre on May 4, the Kent State massacre on May 4 was recorded by CSNY in May 1970. Young's "Ohio" was recorded. "Find The Cost Of Freedom" by Stills was the single's B side. Even though Atlantic Records' "Teach Your Children" was a hit, the album was immediately released as a single, despite the group's "Understand Your Children" being on the singles charts. The band split up in July 1970 after an extended second tour stop, and Stills toured England and released his first solo album.

CSNY's 4 Way Street, a double live album that was released in 1970, was released in April 1971. In 1971, the album debuted on the US charts as the best-selling album in the United States.

Stills (along with Crosby) appeared at three of the nation's most popular rock festivals of the 1960s, having appeared at the Monterey Pop Festival with Buffalo Springfield and both Woodstock and Altamont with CSNY. During Crosby tower, Stills, Nash & Young's set at Altamont Free Concert, Stills was reported to have repeatedly stabbed in the leg by a "stoned-out" Hells Angel with a sharpened bicycle spoke. Their appearance in the upcoming film Gimme Shelter (1970), at the band's request, was not included.

All four members released high-profile solo albums in the aftermath of CSNY's success. Stills' eponymous solo debut album in 1970 featured guests Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Booker T. Jones, and Ringo Starr (known only as "Richie"), as well as David Crosby, Graham Nash, Rita Coolidge, and CSNY drummer Johnny Barbata. It gave Stills with the United States No. 39. "Love the One You're With" is the 14th hit song on the charts. "Sit Yourself Down" is the current top 40 hit in the United States, with another top 40 hit "Sit Yourself Down," peaking at 37. The album reached no. 3 on the US charts, marking a solo career high. Stills' solo album was the best-selling solo album out of the four at the time of its debut. It was recorded in the United Kingdom, where Stills bought Ringo Starr's old mansion in Surrey, England.

In January 1971, he appeared on the BBC TV show Disco 2 in Disco 2.

Stephen Stills II and "Marianne" were two of Stephen Stills' albums, which appeared in Miami, only 6 months after, and he performed in Miami, which featured "Change Partners" and "Marianne." Both these singles barely made it to the top 40, peaking at 43 and 42 respectively, while the album reached number eight on the charts. This album was released only a month after it was released. Despite that "Change Partners" was published before CSN was invented, Nash saw it as a neologising of the many CSNY friendships. Stills recorded 23 songs for the album, and they had intended to debut a double album, but Atlantic wouldn't allow him. Stills' first solo tour with an 8 piece band, including the Memphis Horns, was a success on tour throughout the United States. During this tour, he sold out Madison Square Garden, The Philadelphia Spectrum, Los Angeles Forum, and the Boston Garden, arguably at his solo commercial peak. MSG was sold out the day before George Harrison's programmed the Concert For Bangladesh, and Stills donated his stage, sound, lighting, and production manager, but Harrison was furious when Harrison "neglected to invite him to perform, mention his name, or say thank you." "Barking at everyone" in Ringo Starr's dressing room. The Madison Square Garden performance was professionally shot and filmed in early 1972, but no further details of "Go Back Home" was released, and two acoustic tracks were included on Stills' 2013 box set Carry On.

Billboard magazine ranked him at number 34 on the year end, as the top new album artist, number 14 top singles male vocalist, number 14 top new albums top male vocalists, number 17 top top new album artists, and ranked him at number 70 in the year-end chart. Stephen Stills 2 was ranked as the best new male of 1971 by Cashbox magazine, on his debut as number 52, and as the top new singerţilor of 1971.

Stills performed guitar on Bill Withers' album, Just as I Am, also in 1971, including the Grammy-winning song "Ain't No Sunshine."

Stills formed the band Manassas in late 1971 after being partnered with ex-Byrd Chris Hillman. The self-titled double album by the artists was a mash-up of rock, country, blues, bluegrass, and Latin music segmented into various genres, and they reached number 4 in the United States. It was officially approved by the US Gold a month after its debut, but no more top 40 hits were generated, and only "It Doesn't Matter" reached 61 on the US charts, with only "It Doesn't Matter" hitting 61. The majority of 1972 featured the Manassas on a world essence, including headlining festivals in Australia, appearing in more venues in the United States, including the Nas 01 Coliseum and the Boston Garden. Stephen Stills Manassas: In Concert at The Rainbow Theatre in London was shot for BBC TV Special titled Stephen Stills Manassas. After attending a Manassas gig in France, 1972, he moved to Boulder, Colorado, and married French singer-songwriter Veronique Sanson in March 1973 in London, England. Stills appeared in a UK documentary about him called Sounding Out in early 1972. Stills was ranked as the number 52 best male vocalist of 1972 by Cashbox magazine. Manassassas was ranked as the number 53 album of 1972 by Billboard, and Stills was ranked as the number 75 album artist.

Stills' albums after Buffalo Springfield had gone gold or platinum; the Manassas tribute album the next year was his first album that didn't, but it still managed to land at number 26 in the US charts. It was released less than a year after the debut double album, but it was having problems with recording and not having enough Stills songs on the album. Also in Atlantica, they were calling for a more commercially viable CSNY reunion. Which took place in Maui in June and July 1973 between the two 1973 Manassas tours at the start and end of the year. Human Highway, a CSNY record a tentatively named Human Highway. This album was never finished due to infighting. But, after one last 1973 Manassas tour, where CSN and CSNY reunited during the acoustic sections at Winterland Arena concerts, a reunion was in the works, and Manassas was over. Sadly, Jones sold his Surrey home and moved to Colorado. For ABC In Concert, the last date of the first 1973 wirkt Manassas tour was recorded. Manassas was ranked as the number 58 group of 1973 by a cashbox magazine. Down The Road is ranked as the number 36 of new album artists by Billboard.

Stephen left David Geffen's services in 1972/73 and formed Gold Hill Publishing, which was named after his Boulder, Colorado home.

Nevertheless, he appeared in good theatres, including Carnegie Hall, early in 1974. This tour's 1975 live album Stephen Stills Live was made up of recordings from this tour. Also on this tour, Stills revealed the 1974 CSNY reunion concert tour. Both the United States and the United Kingdom hosted the CSNY reunion tour, with an average concert audience of 80,000. The tour didn't have enough funds for the company due to poor leadership, but album sales saw a jump: the CSNY compilation album So Far reached number one in the United States and sold 6 million copies. Stills has signed with Columbia Records in late 1974, after another failed attempt at recording another CSNY album after the tour. Alsos was recording As I Come Of Age, another solo album that was not available on the CSNY reunion tour from 1973-1974. Many songs were included on the 1975 Stills album. Stills played bass and was a part of his wife's Le Maudit album in 1974. In October 1974, he appeared on bass at two of her Paris concerts. Stills performed two short acoustic shows at Chances Are, a nightclub in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on October 29th as a tribute to Democrat John Reuther's campaign. Stills performed two shows for Democratic congressional nominee Bob Carr at the Stables in East Lansing, Michigan, and then at an unannounced acoustic slot at a Michigan University frat party on October 30th.

Stills signed to Columbia Records for three albums: The 1975, Illegal Stills, 1976; and Thoroughfare Gap in 1978. When the three were announced in June 1975, it was the most prominent chartmbazing release of the three years and also the most profitable of the three categories. Since then, the Los Angeles Philharmonicy and Red Rocks Amphitheatre have spent the remainder of the year touring the United States, including the Los Angeles Forum and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Alsos performed an acoustic set at the Bob Dylan-organised Night of the Hurricane Benefit at the Houston Astrodome in January 1976. Illegal Stills debuted in May 1976, which landed at number 31 on the US charts, but it was not widely distributed nor did any charting singles exist. Stills performed percussion on the Bee Gees' album "You Should Be Dancing" and wrote an unreleased song with Barry Gibb around this time. Stills, who has reflected on his mid-70s solo period, says he "short-circuited for a while" because time was moving too fast. I'm a little crazed. Too much alcohol intake, there are too many opioids. What can I say? Stills was ranked as the nation's best male vocalist of 1975 by a cashbox magazine.

Stills, a 1976 reunion with Neil Young after the publication of Illegal Stills, attempted a reunion with him. Long May You Run was supposed to be a CSNY hit, but when Crosby and Nash returned to perform recording and touring duties, they discovered that they had wiped their vocals from the album, as Stills and Young Band was still on the road. However, young will miss midway through the tour due to an apparent throat infection. Stills was contractually bound to complete the tour, which he did for three dates before being forced to cancel, with Chris Hillman assisting him, but after returning home, French singer-songwriter Véronique Sanson announced she wanted a divorce and wanted to return to France, although they briefly reunited.

The surviving trio went out on tour in November 1976 as a three piece, with Stills on guitar, vocals, piano, George Perry on bass, and Joe Vitale on drums. Stills recovered with Crosby and Nash shortly after, thanks to Nash's future wife Susan, who convinced Nash not to blame Stills for wiping the Crosby and Nash vocals from Long May You Run. Not until Atlantic records released a compilation album from Stills' first two solo albums, as well as two Manassas albums in December 1976 titled Stills: The Best Of Stephen Stills. Stills ranked as the top male vocalist of 1976, and the number one new artist of 1976, Stills & Young. Nonetheless, Gold Hill publishing was having hits on the band Firefall and Joey Stec during this period, so much so that Billboard named him as the top 97 publisher of 1976.

Crosby and Nash's performances in late 1976 and 1977 brought Crosby, Stills, and Nash's permanent reunion. They began the CSN album in 1977 and unsuccessfully attempted another album in 1978. During 1977 and 1978, the band toured Madison Square Garden and the Los Angeles Forum, and President Jimmy Carter was visiting President Jimmy Carter in the White House.

One of these dates, 1979, included a trip to Cuba to attend the Havana Jam festival, which took place between March 2 and 4, as well as a slew of Cuban artists including Irakere, who toured the US after the Havana concerts. Ernesto Juan Castellanos' documentary Havana Jam 1979 captures his appearance.

Stills released 1979 one of the first entirely digital albums; however, it is unreleased because the record company did not feel it was commercially sufficient. "Spanish Suite" and "Cuba al Fin" are two of the album's titles, as well as the 1982 CSN hit "Southern Cross." Barry Beckett produced the album, which was scheduled for release in 1979 or 1980.

In 1979, CSN appeared on only two occasions, both at Madison Square Garden for Musicians United for Safe Energy. Their performance was featured on The Muse Concerts for a Non-Nuclear Future.

Veronique San socialist, a widow of Stills' husband, filed for divorce, which was finalized on July 12, 1980.

After playing some European dates in 1980 and with Graham Nash accompanying him on the German dates in support of Angelo Branduardi, Stills and Nash decided to record a duo album together. David Crosby's album was refused to be released without him, so they inserted him and CSN's Daylight Again was released in 1982, reaching number eight in the United States and was labeled Platinum. "Southern Cross" was a top-twenty hit on the album by Stills. StillsStrate's number 45 hit song "War Games" was released in 1983, on the CSN live album Allies.

David Crosby death: Bandmate Stephen Stills and Brian Wilson lead tributes, January 20, 2023
Since announced that he died at the age of 81, tributes have poured in to the 1960s hitmaker and 'giant of a musician,' David Crosby. 'After a long illness,' the member of the band Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, died on Thursday'after a long illness,' his wife Jan Dance told Variety. David's former Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bandmate Stephen Stills, who said in a tweet that "his harmonic sensibilities were nothing short of genius."

David Crosby's sex and heroin fuelled life reveals the mysterious man behind people's sweetest harmonies: the wild man behind those people's sweetest harmonies, January 20, 2023
Many people have died early, but The iconoclast rocker came to fame first on The Byrds before co-founding the band with Stephen Stills and then-best friend Graham Nash. The organisations' multi-platinum success solidified the company's heyday in the 1970s, particularly after the introduction of troubled-yet recognizable Neil Young, who boosted the act's stardom. A constant clash of egos, ignited by the bandmates' passions and the decade's excesses, will eventually topple the band in the 1970s, but the band's members will sporadically reunite over the years for several tours and recordings. Crosby's personal life was marred by heavy drug use that threatened to halt his career, as well as several rival disputes that had seen him alienated from his old friends by the 1980s. The singer-songwriter, who is survived by his wife and four children from a previous marriage, died of the many bridges he had burned over the course of his checkered life.
