Neil Young Confirms CSNY Break-up With Howard Stern

Neil Young has once again confirmed Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are over.

Young visited the Howard Stern radio show in New York this week for a one-hour interview where the his disdain for David Crosby was evident.

“Playing with Stills and Nash in that band was really great,” he said completely leaving out the name Crosby. “I wish him the best with his life. There’s love there. There’s just nothing else there”.

Young confirmed a CSNY reunion will never happen. “Never happen, no, not in a million years,” he said. “It will never happen. You don’t have to think about it.”

Neil also suggested the rift came over time and that he tried unsuccessfully to correct the situation. “You’ve got to think about things before you do them. If you make a mistake, you got to fix it right away,” he said.

He also ruled out doing a reunion for history’s sake. “We were a great band. We did a lot of great work. Why should we get together and celebrate how good we were? What difference does it make? The audience, great, fantastic. but we don’t do it for the audience. We don’t do it for the money”.

“Even for a cause? You have a lot of causes,” Stern co-host Robin Quivers asked Young. “Yeah, but I can go and cause away,” Neil responds.

When you play music, you have to come from a certain place to do it and everything has to be clear and you don’t want to disturb that. I like to keep the love there, and if the love isn’t there, you don’t want to do it.”
