Neil Young was on the Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM this morning talking for over an hour.
Rolling Stone picked out 12 highlights and you can read about them here.
Two highlights have to do with David Crosby.
“Playing with Stills and Nash in that band was really great,” Young said, purposefully not saying Crosby’s name. “I wish [Crosby] the best with his life. There’s love there. There’s just nothing else there. [A reunion] will never happen. Never happen, no, not in a million years….You have to think about things before you do them. If you make a mistake, you have to fix it right away. [A reunion] will never happen. You don’t have to worry about it. It’s easy to say ‘no.'”
At this point it appears that whatever relationship he had with Crosby is dead. What happened between them? “There’s nothing to apologize for,” Young said. “It was fixable, but it didn’t get fixed.” When Stern asked if it was Young’s fault it didn’t get fixed. “Absolutely not,” said Young. “I did everything I could to make sure it got fixed…We were together for a long time. We did some good work. Why should we get together and celebrate how great we were? What difference does it make? It’s not for the audience. It’s not for money, either. When you play music, you have to come from a certain place to do it and everything has to be clear and you don’t want to disturb that. I like to keep the love there, and if the love isn’t there, you don’t want to do it.”
