CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG – DÉJÀ VU.’ A CAT Club presentation. Sold out.
July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£10
The rock supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (alias CSNY) played their second gig at the Woodstock festival, almost fifty years ago. Within 12 months, they had split up – but not before they recorded Déjà Vu, their first album as a quartet (and their last for almost two decades). Almost every song on Déjà Vu became a rock standard, from ‘Almost Cut My Hair’ and ‘Helpless’ to ‘Our House’ and ‘Teach Your Children.’ But the sunny harmonies on the record didn’t reflect the turbulence of the band, or their times.
The full story will be revealed by PETER DOGGETT, whose biography of CSNY is published at the start of July 2019. It tells the in-depth tale of how four combative and uniquely talented individuals outgrew the 60s bands with whom they’d first found fame, and stumbled into each other’s company. The book explains how a musical relationship that began as an idealistic 60s fantasy quickly turned into a 70s nightmare, with effects that are still being felt today.
Peter’s previous books include his definitive account of the Beatles’ break-up and its aftermath, You Never Give Me Your Money; and his expansive history of 125 years of popular music, Electric Shock.
