LAUREL CANYON, Cailfornia – During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young was one of the most popular bands in the nation.
The four originally met at a birthday pinata party for Linda Ronstadt, who, shortly afterward, said that she would have loved to have done a five-some with the four music legends.
When told by Cowbell Notes Music Magazine's Chipper Caruso that that would have made a fantastically profitable album, Ronstadt smiled and asked, “Who said anything about us doing an album?”
Throughout the years, the band has had its share of up and downs, starting with David Crosby, who once went to the world-famous Tarzan & Jane Petting Zoo in Tarzana, California and stole a goat, a flamingo, a 2-month-old baby hippo, and a pregnant buzzard.
Shortly after that, Stephen Stills was caught at the John & Bob Denver International Airport in Denver with 900 pills of Sanfodarbazon, which is used to prevent elderly porcupines from losing their quills.
Graham Nash, in March of 1971, was found wandering around aimlessly at the La Brea Tar Pits in his Prince Charles boxer shorts, as he was singing the Petula Clark song “Downtown” in the key of D.
And about a week after the La Brea Tar Pits incident, Neil Young was caught up in Saskatchewan, Canada, using a white magic marker to scrawl on a milk cow the words, “Hey world find a way to make cow’s milk taste like tequila.”
David Crosby said that all proceeds from the concert will go to the Underprivileged Children of Malibu Beach.
