5.0 out of 5 stars The full story 25 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent, in depth history of the band from their young days before they met to their most recent activity. Constantly fascinating and hard to put down. Well illustrated throughout with excellent black and white photographs. Fans of the band will love this and anyone interested in rock music will find this a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and thought provoking! 9 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dave Zimmer has done a fantastic job here with great insights into their machinations. Pity more was not said about their bust up in July 1970 (as in Cowboy Movie David Crosby) - although it is covered in some detail I feel that punches were pulled.
Altogether an excellent book - worth every penny and essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MORE THINGS STAY THE SAME,THE MORE THEY CHANGE... 13 Oct 2008
By Rick Rangel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This revised and updated edition is the third entry of Crosby,Stills & Nash:The Biography. The first edition was published in 1984 and chronicled the early years of CSNY.The prose by Mr.Zimmer and the photos by Mr.Diltz made for compelling reading.Anyone even remotely familiar
with these men and their music knows their history.It has always amazed me that CSNY became legend on the strength of two albums.CROSBY,STILLS AND NASH was released in 1969 right before the summer of Woodstock.Neil Young climbed aboard just before that historic event and the rest is history.DEJA VU came out in late spring of 1970 and it became a classic for the ages.The first edition follows the group up to 1984.The revised edition was published in 1999 and picks up where the first edition left off.Crosby's problems with drug addiction and his short prison stint are written about but not dwelled upon .The second edition ends in 1999 with the release of LOOKING FORWARD (CSNY'S third studio album in 29 years) and on the eve of the CSNY2K tour (their 2nd in 26 years).The 2008
edition would be a rehashing of previous events one would think,but that one would be wrong.So much has happened to both them AND us.There is new insight on Stephen Stills and Judy "Suite:Judy Blue Eyes" Collins that has never been revealed before.It IS an eye opener.CSNY went out touring right after 9-11 and there are a lot of photos from that tour.Then came 2006's FREEDOM OF SPEECH TOUR and THAT is what finally divides the artist and the audience. It is a fascinating read because of the insights Zimmer provides,not all of them of the same viewpoint as the celebated quartet.This 2008 edition is the keeper because
it lays out not only the lives of David Crosby,Stephen Stills,Graham Nash and Neil Young but the lives of their fellow generation (read baby boomers)as well. All four are well into their sixties but their fire has never dwindled. I can't think of any musicians that have put their entire career on the line like these cats have because they've always lived up to "being real".If this latest edition is the last one,it could not have ended on a higher note.Zimmer concludes in the final chapter that there is "no end in sight".Who knows? There may be MORE music to write,MORE songs to be sung and MORE audiences to be thrilled.A majestic American tale...and it is all true.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 27 Dec 2008
By Saki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I truly enjoyed this book. Very well written, tons of information and of course, those great Henry Diltz photos. A keeper, and frankly, the best purchase for the money I've made in a long time. Some of the junk on the web (and even published in other books) is simply false, and very annoying. Nice to read something I can trust, which does NOT mean that Zimmer's reporting is always flattering to his subjects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glossed over some details 13 Dec 2012
By Anne M. Durkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love CSN. I still listen to them with as much love as ever. While this book gave lots of detail, some details were glaringly absent, like David's long descent into a very serious drug addiction. When he was unable to record or do shows, the book glosses over this by saying, "he was sick" or some such nonsense. All of the information is out there, we the fans know the story, so it would have served us all better to just be honest about it. It could have been a story of redemption; a cautionary tale, a life lesson; the story of enduring friendship with all of the ups, downs, and pains. But it was all but left out. It loses stars for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 5 Feb 2010
By Kerri Macias - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book as my dad's christmas present and he loves it. This book is a compilation of Crosby, Stills, and Nash's life from the very beginning to the present. Includes priceless pictures of the boys and stories every fan will love to learn.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for the casual fan 16 July 2014
By Jim the Pinko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Considering the magnitude of tracking all of CSN (and sometimes Y) activities over forty years, I think the author has done an admirable job of stuffing it into a a book that can be read over a weekend. Not deep, but still interesting. Highly recommended for the casual fan. No breathy dramatizing like that which plagues a lot of rock and roll books. Robert Plant's recent biography comes to mind.
