  1. AMAZING!! You listed THREE of the TOP 10 groups on my 60’s automobile Cassette Tape play list!
    And of course their respective members pushed forth joining forces to continue to create some of the 60’s, 70’s, 80′ & onward BEST MUSIC EVER. Crasby, Stills & Nash (CSN) need no introduction from this emense “family tree” of music blockbusters. Of course in due time Neil Young’s contibution is enormous i.e. “CSN&Y”.
    That mention of “Frozen Noses” was a title that I think Stephan Stills may have thought of and immediately tossed out in favor of “CSN”.
    Peace until next time….wood

  2. I believe, CROSBY, STILLS, NASH and YOUNG all were members of the Hollies, The Byrds or Buffalo Springfield. Saw them all play numerous times in SOCAL…4 of my favorite ’60’s combos. Byrds for electrifying folk, Springfield for crossing the fine line between rock and country. THe Hollies for laying down great guitar grooves and excellent harmonies and CSNY for giving us nasty guitar riffs, splendid harmonies and really great songs. I believe the Frozen nose reference has got to refer to, perhaps, coke or the Fact that Sills and Crosby had a band called Frozen Noses, before they hooked up with Nash and Young..Both scenarios are probably true. Although, that might not be the answer you are looking for…

    • Hey Curtis, yes you nailed the question and furthermore your explanation of “Frozen Noses” was exactly what we were looking for!
      Well done and thank you Old Buddy!

    • Hey Fred,
      Not exactly what we were looking for, but…none the less hilarious and TRUE! Thanx Fred for a great laugh first thing in the day!

  3. 1) – They each contributed a member to Crosby, Stills and Nash

    2) – Nickname of above group due to their cocaine use

    • Hey Tom,
      First in! And your answer re: 12 String Guitars is true, that wasn’t exactly what we were getting at! Check the other answers! And you of course explained the “Frozen Noses connection perfectly!
      Thanx Tom, great to see you back in the SMS mix
