Ranging from 1970 to 2002 in terms of first publication, the articles and interviews cover the development of CSNY from a self confident, but untested, aggregation of individuals through to being elder statesmen of rock capable of selling out tours of major venues in the early 21st century. Although the primary ingredient is pieces that focus specifically on the band as a whole, Zimmer leavens the mix with items that focus on the individuals, using them to cast a more oblique and often revealing light on the activities and behaviour of the “main” band. Not surprisingly, the majority of the articles come from US publications; that said, these include both the usual suspects – primarily “Rolling Stone” and writers such as Cameron Crowe – and also less well known (at least in the UK) publications such as “Crawdaddy” and “Creem”. There are, however, some significant pieces from UK publications such as “Melody Maker” and UK writers such as Roy Carr and Vicki Wickham.
Music is the central interest of Zimmer’s selection of pieces. CSNY were, however, notable for the nature of their personal, as well as professional, lives and the issues are not shied away from. Some of it requires reading “between the lines”, but such articles as Roy Carr’s interview with David Geffen, Zimmer’s own major interview with Graham Nash and the pieces on David Crosby’s drug addiction deal with the issues head on.
Inevitably, there are some personal favourites that didn’t survive what must have been a rigorous editing process. Dave Zimmer is, however, to be massively congratulated for delivering a consistent and coherent narrative thread and fitting together the jigsaw like pieces of 30 years of writing to present a clear and illuminating picture of one of the major popular musical outfits of the late 20th century. A worthy companion to his and Henry Ditz's “Crosby, Stills and Nash: The Biography”.
