"Even in the larger-than-life world of rock and roll, it was hard to imagine four more different men. David Crosby, the opinionated hippie guru. Stephen Stills, the perpetually driven musician. Graham Nash, the tactful pop craftsman. Neil Young, the creatively restless loner. But together, few groups were as in sync with their times as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Starting with the original trio's landmark 1969 debut album, the group embodied much about its era: communal musicmaking, protest songs that took on the establishment and Richard Nixon, and liberal attitudes toward partners and lifestyles. Their group or individual songs -- 'Wooden Ships,' 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,' 'After the Gold Rush,' 'For What It's Worth' (with Stills and Young's Buffalo Springfield), 'Love the One You're With,' 'Long Time Gone,' 'Just a Song Before I Go,' 'Southern Cross' -- became the soundtrack of a generation. But their story would rarely be as harmonious as their legendary and influential vocal blend. In the years that followed, these four volatile men would continually break up, reunite, and disband again -- all against a backdrop of social and musical change, recurring disagreements and jealousies, and self-destructive tendencies that threatened to cripple them both as a group and as individuals." -- From publisher's description.

A thorough summary of the band's nearly 50-year history (no, it doesn't sound like they will ever reunite). Only Crosby and Nash were actually interviewed by the author and it's no coincidence that they come across as the more sympathetic characters.
