Also in the News “Graham Nash talks sex, drugs and music and the stories behind the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. “Take the night in 1969 when the band’s eponymously named first album, “Crosby, Stills & Nash” (“Wooden Ships,” “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”) was still in the offing and they joined Joni Mitchell and Kris Kristofferson at Johnny Cash’s Nashville mansion for a party honoring Bob Dylan.

It was just another evening of gold cutlery and reigning music royalty until Cash stood and announced that the family tradition was “you have to sing for your supper.” Dylan, who hadn’t been heard from in a year after his motorcycle accident, rose up and crooned a new song, “Lay Lady Lay.” The table was in tears.” Read more:
