Carrying on with Stephen Stills
Interviewing a legend, and one of my heroes, tends to make the night before the interview a bit restless. I prepared a boat load of questions, and due to time issues, I didn't get to so many things that I wanted to know about. Well, next time, right?
I've had a big crush on Stephen Stills since I first heard Buffalo Springfield's "Sit Down I Think I Love You" and "Bluebird." I was hooked on that voice. Then came Crosby Stills Nash...and Young, and all the combinations thereof, the Supersessions album with Bloomfield and Kooper, and Manassas! Whew! All great stuff, and all in my collection.
Now if you don't have all that in your music library, then you will want to get yourself the 4 CD set, "Carry On." There's the songs you know, rarities, previously unreleased stuff, and a huge book of liner notes for geeks like me!
I'm looking forward to a chance to talk to this amazing man again, becuase I have a whole page of questions that never got asked. But just having a conversation with him was pure bliss. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
