Neil Young has said that he will never tour as part of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young again.
Though there has been no suggestion that he might hit the road with his former bandmates, Young set the record straight as to the future of the group during a solo gig at Philadelphia’s Academy of Music earlier this week (October 8).
As Consequence of Sound reports, Young began talking about the group as he picked up a guitar that was “given to me by my good friend Stephen Stills.” Then, responding to a fans unheard question, Young added: “CSNY will never tour again, ever … but I love those guys.”
The last time Young played with Crosby, Stills and Nash was in 2013. Prior to that the group toured throughout 2006-2007. The group still tours, minus Young, and recently finished a US tour.
Meanwhile, Young recently announced details of his new solo album, ‘Storytone’. The LP, his second of the year following ‘A Letter Home’, was album recorded in the vintage vinyl booth at Jack White’s Third Man Records store in Nashville – will come out on November 3.
The release will see the iconic rocker backed by a 92-piece orchestra and it will feature ‘Who’s Gonna Stand Up?’, which he recently released to coincide with the People’s Climate Marches around the world.
