Remembering The First Rock Music Stadium Tour – Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young And The Summer Of ’74

“As the tour progressed, travel fatigue set in, along with the stress of juggling personal lives, and brittle behavior from too much cocaine use by some of the bandmembers. The dollar figure for the tour was never really known and the huge expenses the band was racking up were being billed back to them. On stage, the music was sensational. Offstage, drugs made their discussions sound more like pontifications or monologues rather than conversations—each one insisting that his viewpoint was the right one.”
