Neil Young has told Howard Stern the story about how is pissed off a camera-man at Woodstock 50 years ago so to piss him off they edited him out of his Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performance and edited his name out of the band title.

Young told Stern that the cameraman “didn’t have to be there on the stage. They are cameras … hello … use your zoom Dickhead”.

“They were on the stage. We were playing music and there was this jerk standing there with this other guy following him around wearing black clothes. Like you couldn’t see them”.

Neil told the cameraman to “get the fuck off the stage” so they edited him out of the movie. “I love that movie,” Neil adds. “When they introduce Crosby, Stills & Nash you can tell …you can tell that they cut (my name out). If you listen it jumps. They hadd to take my name out and use the other two names in the right order.”
