President Trump Appears to Forget Words to the National Anthem
News

Flashback: Crosby, Stills and Nash Perform ‘Just a Song Before I Go’ in 1977
Uncategorized

Crosby, Stills and Nash first played together in 1968, but it was nearly a decade before they toured as a trio. That’s because a certain shaggy Canadian fellow joined their ranks right before they hit the road to support their debut LP. They sold millions of records without the guy, his contributions to their second record would be a scant two-and-a-half songs (only one of which is truly great) and, as Stephen Stills certainly learned during his time in Buffalo...
