With Autism Awareness Month beginning, Los Angeles-based annual Autism Speaks benefit concert Light Up The Blues announces it will not be hosting an event this year...
Consider the lineup:
Guitarist/singer Stephen Stills is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, once for his work with Buffalo Springfield and again for Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Music icons Stephen Stills and Judy Collins will play at Boarding House Park on Sunday, Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The announcement was made Wednesday morning by the Lowell National Historical Park...
By 1972, what we call classic rock was pretty much peaking - though nobody at the time knew it. Except maybe Stephen Stills. The band and double-album he piloted and released that year—both named Manassas—now seem pivotal. Manassas brilliantly summed up the remarkable 1960s creative surge that revitalized rock's roots and encouraged experimentation just when it was at its crest...
Stephen Stills may have written or been involved in some of the most memorable protest songs of all time with Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Ohio,” but turns out Stills isn’t necessarily the biggest fan of the genre. However, he does feel that if the song comes organically and passionately the occasional political song is acceptable. Well, Stills became inspired to write about his recommendation for this upcoming presidential election in "Look Each Other In The Eye," a song that rails against Republican candidate Donald Trump’s vanity and hatred...
An intimate evening of songs and stories with two time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Stephen Stills. The cultural and musical contributions of Stephen Stills will be explored in a fascinating conversation between Stephen Stills and Dick Boak of C. F. Martin & Co., interspersed with musical vignettes from the legendary guitarist...
Old CSNY and Buffalo Springfield band mates Neil Young and Stephen Stills performed together for the first time in a year last night at the 4th Annual Light Up The Blues charity concert. Stephen Stills and his wife Kristen Stills put together the concert held at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles to benefit the Autism Speaks charity...
The Rides, the blues-rock outfit Stephen Stills formed a few years back with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg, recently released their second album, Pierced Arrow. Eight of the 10 tracks on the latest album are new tunes co-written by the group...
...Stills was greeted by the crowd as a genuine icon. He mitigated his increasingly strained vocals with plenty of tasteful guitar playing, complementing and contrasting with Shepherd and still getting plenty of his own dander up on “Don’t Want Lies” and “Love the One Your With” — which he dedicated to a friend who graduated from the University of Michigan in 1967 — which finally got the Michigan Theater crowd on its feet late in the show....
In advance of the record’s May 6 release, the band has shared the lead track, “Kick Out of It,” online at The Huffington Post.
The mid-tempo rock tune is highlighted by some blazing guitar work from Stills and Shepherd and Stephen’s attitude-heavy vocals.
“This song is authentic rock ‘n’ roll at its best,” Shepherd tells The Huffington Post. “This is the first song we wrote together for this record and it really set the tone for the entire album. It’s vintage Stephen Stills. The song idea was conceived decades ago and was finished with The Rides.”...
The 4th Annual Light Up the Blues will be returning to the Hollywood Pantages May 5th, which will feature a fully loaded roster including Neil Young, The Rides (with Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepard and Barry Goldberg), Jakob Dylan, The War on Drugs, Nikka Costa, Chris Stills and emcee Jack Black, plus many special guests. The event is hosted by Kristen and Stephen Stills and will benefit Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization...
Stephen Stills and his long-ago Buffalo Springfield band mate Neil Young will take part again in Stills’ fourth Light Up the Blues concert to benefit Autism Speaks, scheduled for May 21 at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.
Young was among Stills’ guests at last year’s edition of the event, and this year Stills and his band, the Rides (which also features guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and veteran blues-rock keyboardist Barry Goldberg) will be joined by Jakob Dylan, Nikka Costa, the War on Drugs, Chris Stills and emcee Jack Black....

Some people daydream about their perfect musical line-up… legendary Stephen Stills, guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and keyboard extraordinaire Barry Goldberg turned their blues-rock dream band into reality! That’s the Rides, a super group with a mile long resume, from Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductions to Grammy wins, whose 2013 debut, Can’t Get Enough, landed them in the Top 40 on the Billboard 200 and garnered them a nomination for Best Rock Blues Album at the 2014 Blues Music Awards...

Featuring Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Barry Goldberg
Breaking more fresh new blues-rock ground than ever on their raucous and soulful new album Pierced Arrow, The Rides are letting their growing legion of fans know they’re in this for the long haul. Their ongoing freewheeling journey is all there in the name. When they came up with that clever moniker for what Stephen Stills calls “the blues band of my dreams,” the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, five time Grammy nominated guitar great Kenny Wayne Shepherd and legendary Chicago rock/blues keyboardist Barry Goldberg knew it was more than just a one time, multi-generational fusion of legendary musical souls. They envisioned – and have since set out upon – a dynamic, wide open road ahead...
Stephen Stills has enjoyed one of the most storied careers in rock 'n' roll, as a solo artist and member of Buffalo Springfield, Manassas, The Rides, and Crosby, Stills & Nash (and occasionally Young).
He’s in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice over, with CSN&Y and Buffalo Springfield, and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He also performed at all three of history's most famous outdoor festivals: Woodstock, Monterey Pop and Altamont.
But in a lovably rambling phone interview, Stills mostly wanted to talk about his favorite sport: horse racing...
Stills will perform career-spanning favorites as well as new songs
Legendary singer-songwriter, guitarist and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills will headline a solo tour in the United States in July and August during a break in Crosby, Stills & Nash’s 2015 tour. Public on sale tickets will be available beginning Friday, May 15 through www.stephenstills.com.
The tour kicks off on July 6 at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, and concludes August 5 with two nights at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA. This run includes shows in New York City, Charlotte, Nashville, Atlanta, Austin, Dallas and more. The show will feature two sets: one solo acoustic and one full electric band set of career-spanning favorites, including several new songs. Stills will be accompanied by longtime CSN bandmates Kevin McCormick (bass) and Todd Caldwell (organ), with a new addition on drums, Mario Calire.
Last fall, Neil Young told an audience that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young "will never tour again, ever," with David Crosby later confirming on Twitter that he and Young had a falling out.
But three out of four ain't bad, especially since David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash were the core trio to begin with. So when tickets for Crosby, Stills and Nash's concert at the Riverside Theater Sunday first went on sale, they were gone within the weekend.
That's despite the fact that CSN hasn't had an original studio album in 21 years (there was one with Young, but that was still back in 1999). Not that that seemed to matter. From a Stills-led blues-colored rendition of Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," to Nash, the most festive of the three, regaling the audience with a story about tripping on acid at Stonehenge in the '70s (which inspired the opus "Cathedral"), the show frequently served up nostalgia, and was celebrated for doing so. . .

Adding to their already announced July tour, the new dates begin August 6 at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The group will perform songs from their extensive catalogue, as well as new material from each member.
On April 5th, Stephen Stills and his wife Kristen hosted the 2nd Light Up The Blues Concert to benefit Autism Speaks in downtown Los Angeles at the newly restored Theatre @ the ACE. The sold out concert raised $320,000 to benefit Autism Speaks' research and advocacy efforts for families and individuals impacted by the disorder. The event featured Crosby, Stills & Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, and Chris Stills. A number of special guests also performed, including rapper Watsky, and four artists on the Autism Spectrum, indie artist Xolie Morra and The Strange Kind, Rio "Soulschocka" Wyles, Adam Mandela Walden, and Neal Katz.

The 25th Anniversary of the Rainforest Fund Will Be Celebrated at New York City's Carnegie Hall with The Revlon Concert Featuring Performances by Renowned Artists
Crosby, Stills & Nash held a full Fox theatre audience spellbound for almost three hours on Saturday night providing an evening of entertainment that was a perfect blend of old and new music, solo and collaboration.
Nearly 45 years ago, I heard “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” for the first time when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, along with Neil Young, took to the stage at Woodstock and opened with the song after telling the crowd “This is only the second time we’ve performed in front of people. We’re scared shitless!”
While the lyrics to one of their most famous songs "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" states 'It's getting to the point where I'm no fun anymore' that clearly wasn't the case last night as Crosby, Stills and Nash played to a sell-out crowd for over two and a half hours at the Embassy Theatre.
From the moment that David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash took to the stage, the crowd erupted in overwhelming approval as the group proceeded to take them on fun-filled journey through some of the best rock songs of the past 40-plus years.

There was much to be said for attending the third and final show of Crosby Stills & Nash's Albert Hall stint, because this was the night when they played their debut album in its entirety. Clearly much - almost everything, in fact - has changed since 1969, but though the musicians are four decades older, their original collective spirit survives remarkably intact.
"I'd like to thank the elderly person's council for allowing me to do that," jokes Stills, after leading them through a beautiful, slinky blues groove that, Nash reveals, the rest of the band first heard during afternoon sound-check. A slightly edgier character than his old hippy companions, but arguably the most talented of them all, Stills's cosmically wonderful guitar playing is as nuanced and expressive as any you will ever hear and lifts everything to another plane. Generously incorporating a fantastic five piece band of sensitive, virtuoso players, this classic trio are a continuing reminder that music is a unifying life force, greater than the sum of its parts, and truly extraordinary when the individual parts are all perfectly right.
Live Nation is proud to announce the lineup and ticket information for the 27th annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts at Shoreline Amphitheatre. This year's concerts will take place onSaturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.
